Big Data: Top Hadoop Interview Questions (3 of 5)

1) What are daemons in Hadoop?

Big Data: Top Hadoop Interview Questions
#Big Data: Top Hadoop Interview Questions:
In reality running Hadoop means, running daemons of resident programs in multiple servers of your network. This kind of architecture is called fully configured cluster.

2) How daemons run in Hadoop architecture?

Some daemons run in only one server, and others run in more than one server

3) What are the 5 daemons of Hadoop?

-Name node
-Secondary name node
-Data Node
-Job tracker
-Task tracker

4) How many levels do we classify Hadoop broadly?

Broadly we can classify as, it is combination of distributed storage and distributed computation.
Also, as Master/Slave architecture

5) Who is the master of HDFS?

Name node is the master of HDFS

6) What are the functions of Name node?

-Master of HDFS
-Directs slave node i.e., Data nodes
-Book keeping for HDFS
-Monitor overall health of HDFS

7) What is data node?

Each slave machine will have Data node daemon.It performs grunt work of distributed file system

8) What are the functions of Data node?

-Main functionality is read or write HDFS file blocks to local system
-Data node communicates to name node about data blocks. Name node in turn communcates about data block and Data nodes to client.
-Data nodes can communicate each other
-Every change of data in Data node will communicate to Name node

9) How many replicas of data blocks stored in different Data nodes?

3

10) What is Secondary Data node(SNN)?
  • SNN is an assistant to Name node. It also monitors the state of HDFS cluster
  • Like Name node each cluster has one SNN, and it typically resides on its own machine
  • Data nodes and Task trackers run on multiple servers.
It does not record any changes, but time to time it suggests Name node to take SNAP shots of HDFS metadata

11) What will happen if Name node fails?

Then , human interventions is required. That time SNN acts as Name node.

12) What is the role of Job tracker?

This is mediator between client and Task tracker
- Prepares execution plan
-Assign works to task trackers
-Assign nodes to different tasks
-Monitors all tasks are running fine or not

13) What is the role of Task tracker?

Manages execution of individual tasks on each slave node
Single task tracker for each slave node
A task tracker can spread multiple JVMs in a single slave node, to process parallel

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.

Different Types Of Payment Cards

The Credit Card (Shopping): The purpose o this card is to buy any item withing the limit prescribed by banks to cardholder. These cards can have both Magnetic stripe and Chip cards. 
Now a days all banks are issuing credit cards with CHIP and PIN. After entering the PIN by cardholder, then transaction starts for further processing.

The debit (ATM, Cash) card is a relatively new method of payment. It is different from a credit card because the debit cardholder pays with the money available in their bank account, which is debited immediately in real time. A debit card seems to be more dangerous compared to a credit card because the debit card is directly linked to the bank checking account and usually allows ATM cash withdrawals.

On the other hand, it is more protected by the required two-factor authentication (PIN number plus card itself). The real dangerous element of many branded debit cards is that they can be processed as credit cards, without entering the PIN.

The Gift card
is simila…

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 …
