I understand you point and it makes sense.
The graph in Alan's book says that if you "outer join on the small
input" you should not use replicated join.
Maybe this sentence is not clear enough :)

From what I understand replicated should not be used with full outer join since full outer means both tables records will be in the output regardless if they exist in the joined table. In your case you only care about session which is left join and not a full outer.
Reason for that is pigs and Hadoop schematics of the join: the "small" table is loaded into each mapper and thus is not meant to be used solely in the output.

I use replicated joins, and recently I encountered an issue : my rightmost relation seems to become too big and, even if I don't get any "Java heap space" the time it take to finish the maps become exponentially long (I cannot figure why exactly).
Removing "replicated" fix the issue, but several questions raise.
In Alan's book " *Figure 8.1. Choosing a Join Implementation " it is said that replicated joins should NOT BE USED for outer joins.
*Nevertheless, it seems to work in the following case, and is faster than regular joins. So why ?
sessions = JOIN sessions BY locid LEFT, locations BY locid USING 'replicated';
(not all sessions have a location in this case)
Thanks for your advices.
