How to count number of rows in alias in PIG?

+1 vote

I did something like this to count the number of rows in an alias in PIG:

logs = LOAD 'log'
logs_w_one = foreach logs generate 1 as one;
logs_group = group logs_w_one all;
logs_count = foreach logs_group generate SUM(logs_w_one.one);
dump logs_count;

This seems to be too inefficient. Is there a better way to do this?
