Thejas, is that part of the new secondary sort optimization work that's in
trunk, or was this in 0.7?

Pig will use the sort column of the bag as a secondary sort key for the MR
Though in the case of co-group, it is only doing that for the first bag. If
you have a large bag and a small one, you can position them in the pig
so that secondary sort is used on large one.

This is what I tried (pig svn trunk version)-
grunt> l1 = load 'x' as (a,b);
grunt> l2 = load 'y' as (a,b);
grunt> cg = cogroup l1 by a, l2 by a;
grunt> f = foreach cg { o1 = order l1 by (b); o2 = order l2 by (b);
group, o1, o2;}

-- in the following explain output note that there is no POSort for o1 ,
it says "Secondary sort: true"

grunt> explain f

I need to sort the DataBags that are input to my UDF after a COGROUP.
I am currently sorting them in memory but it is not going to scale in
the long term.

Is there a way to control the way that Pig sorts them (e.g. as you can
with a WritableComparable in raw map/reduce) prior to passing them in
so that I don't have to respill them to disk?

Thanks for any info,
