Are there any limits to number of Reducers in Hadoop? and what are the best practice to design the mappers and reducers in Hadoop environments?

Regards,
Mohamed

The best practise is to keep the number of redulers slightly less than the number of available reduce slots in your cluster.
Get more info from Hadoop wiki
