Big Data:Top Hadoop Interview Questions (2 of 5)

Frequently asked Hadoop interview questions.


1. What is Hadoop?Hadoop is a framework that allows users the power of distributed computing.

2.What is the difference between SQL and Hadoop?

SQL is allowed to work with structured data. But SQL is most suitable for legacy technologies. Hadoop is suitable for unstructured data. And, it is well suited for modern technologis.
Hadoop

3. What is Hadoop framework?

It is distributed network of commodity servers(A server can contain multiple clusters, and a cluster can have multiple nodes)

4. What are 4 properties of Hadoop?

Accessible-Hadoop runs on large clusters of commodity machinesRobust-An assumption that low commodity machines cause many machine failures. But it handles these tactfully. Scalable-Hadoop scales linearly to handle larger data by adding more nodes to the cluster. Simple-Hadoop allows users to quickly write efficient parallel code

5. What kind of data Hadoop needs?

Traditional RDBMS having relational structure with data resides in tables. In Hadoop. data should be in Key,Value pair.

6. Is Hadoop suitable for on the fly processing?

Hadoop is not suitable. It is suitable only for off-line processing. That means, we can not use Hadoop on active web logs. We can use it on web logs data,which already generated. So, in this property Hadoop is matching to traditional data warehouses.

7. What is Map reduce?

Map reduce is a data processing model, which contain mappers, and reducers. It takes unstructred data as input, and create as Key,Value pairs for processing on Hadoop.

Four Tableau products a quick review and explanation

I want to share you what are the Products most popular.

Total four products. Read the details below.

Tableau desktop-(Business analytics anyone can use) - Tableau  Desktop  is  based  on  breakthrough technology  from  Stanford  University  that  lets  you drag & drop to analyze data. You can connect to  data in a few clicks, then visualize and create interactive dashboards with a few more.

We’ve done years of research to build a system that supports people’s natural  ability  to  think visually. Shift fluidly between views, following your natural train of thought. You’re not stuck in wizards or bogged down writing scripts. You just create beautiful, rich data visualizations.  It's so easy to use that any Excel user can learn it. Get more results for less effort. And it’s 10 –100x faster than existing solutions.

Tableau  Server  is  a  business  intelligence  application  that  provides  browser-based  analytics anyone can use. It’s a rapid-fire alternative to th…

The Sqoop in Hadoop story to process structural data

Why Sqoop you need while working on Hadoop-The Sqoop and its primary reason is to import data from structural data sources such as Oracle/DB2 into HDFS(also called Hadoop file system).
To our readers, I have collected a good video from Edureka which helps you to understand the functionality of Sqoop.

The comparison between Sqoop and Flume

The Sqoop the word came from SQL+Hadoop Sqoop word came from SQL+HADOOP=SQOOP. And Sqoop is a data transfer tool. The main use of Sqoop is to import and export the large amount of data from RDBMS to HDFS and vice versa. List of basic Sqoop commands Codegen- It helps to generate code to interact with database records.Create-hive-table- It helps to Import a table definition into a hiveEval- It helps to evaluateSQL statement and display the resultsExport-It helps to export an HDFS directory into a database tableHelp- It helps to list the available commandsImport- It helps to import a table from a database to HDFSImport-all-tables- It helps to import tables …

The best 5 differences of AWS EMR and Hadoop

With Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) you can analyze and process vast amounts of data. It does this by distributing the computational work across a cluster of virtual servers running in the Amazon cloud. The cluster is managed using an open-source framework called Hadoop.

Amazon EMR has made enhancements to Hadoop and other open-source applications to work seamlessly with AWS. For example, Hadoop clusters running on Amazon EMR use EC2 instances as virtual Linux servers for the master and slave nodes, Amazon S3 for bulk storage of input and output data, and CloudWatch to monitor cluster performance and raise alarms.

You can also move data into and out of DynamoDB using Amazon EMR and Hive. All of this is orchestrated by Amazon EMR control software that launches and manages the Hadoop cluster. This process is called an Amazon EMR cluster.
