Introduction to Oozie

Places or points of interest are specific locations that may be important to some people. Those locations are additionally associated with data that explains what is interesting or important about them.

Networking basics for IoT developers

These are typically locations where people come for entertainment, interaction, services, education, and other types of social activities. Examples of places include restaurants, museums, theaters, stadiums, hotels, landmarks, and so on. Many companies gather data about places and use this data in their applications.

In the telecommunications industry, probes are small packages of information sent from mobile devices. The majority of "smartphones" send probes regularly when the device is active and is running a geographical application (such as maps, navigation, traffic reports, and so on).

The probe frequency varies for different providers (from 5 seconds to 30 seconds). Probes are normally directed to phone carriers such as Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and/or phone manufacturers such as Apple, Nokia, HTC, and so on.


Different steps in validating location of customers
  • Select probes data for a specified time interval, as well as a location from the probes repository.
  • Extract probes strands. The idea here is to discover groups of probes from a particular device that belong to an individual who spent some time in one location. More precisely, a usual technique here includes classifying probes strands (such as pedestrians or traffic) and extracting "stay points" from pedestrian strands. 
  • Distribute the strands into geotiles. In practice, it is convenient to use several geotile systems in parallel with different tile sizes (geohash levels).
  • Geotiling is the partitioning of a space into a finite number of distinct shapes. This implementation uses equal-sized bounding boxes. A zoom level defines the size of the tiles. Typically, for the zoom level n, the number of tiles for the world is 2n.
  • Distribute the places into geotiles.
  • Calculate a location attendance index. The location attendance index captures the number of strands located in the proximity of a location, usually associated with a group of places. That enables you to estimate how many people attend places, how long people remain in places, and the distribution of these parameters over time.
  • Cluster stay points by geographical locations, and use clusters not associated with the currently known places for discovery of new place candidates.
What is the role of Oozie
Oozie does not require special programming for any of the Oozie actions. For example, any existing Pig script or any HQL script can be used as is inside of Oozie actions.

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.

Hadoop uses a distributed processing architecture called MapReduce in which a task is mapped to a set of servers for proce…

Top 20 ultimate ETL Questions really good for interviews

How to print/display the first line of a file?  there are many ways to do this. However the easiest way to display the first line of a file is using the [head] command.  $> head -1 file. Txt no prize in guessing that if you specify [head -2] then it would print first 2 records of the file.  another way can be by using [sed] command. [sed] is a very powerful text editor which can be used for various text manipulation purposes like this.  $> sed '2,$ d' file. Txt how does the above command work?  The 'd' parameter basically tells [sed] to delete all the records from display from line 2 to last line of the file (last line is represented by $ symbol). Of course it does not actually delete those lines from the file, it just does not display those lines in standard output screen. So you only see the remaining line which is the 1st line.  how to print/display the last line of a file?  the easiest way is to use the [tail] command.  $> tail -1 file. Txt if you want to do it using…

5 Things About AWS EC2 You Need to Focus!

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) - is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers.
Amazon EC2’s simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction.

The basic functions of EC2... 
It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and lets you run on Amazon’s proven computing environment.Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change.Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by allowing you to pay only for capacity that you actually use. Amazon EC2 provides developers the tools to build failure resilient applications and isolate themselves from common failure scenarios. 
Key Points for Interviews:
EC2 is the basic fundamental block around which the AWS are structured.EC2 provides remote ope…
