Top Hive interview Questions for quick read (1 of 2)

The selected interview questions on HIVE. Hive is a technology being used in Hadoop eco system.

1) What are major activities in Hadoop eco system?
Within the Hadoop ecosystem, HDFS can load and store massive quantities of data in an efficient and reliable manner. It can also serve that same data back up to client applications, such as MapReduce jobs, for processing and data analysis.
2)What is the role of HIVE in HADOOP Eco system?
Hive, often considered the Hadoop data warehouse platform, got its start at Facebook as their analyst struggled to deal with the massive quantities of data produced by the social network. Requiring analysts to learn and write MapReduce jobs was neither productive nor practical.

3)What is Hive in Hadoop?
Facebook developed a data warehouse-like layer of abstraction that would be based on tables. The tables function merely as metadata, and the table schema is projected onto the data, instead of actually moving potentially massive sets of data. 

This new capability allowed their analyst to use a SQL-like language called Hive Query Language (HQL) to query massive data sets stored with HDFS and to perform both simple and sophisticated summarizations and data analysis.

4)What is the requirement for HIVE learning?
If you are familiar with basic T-SQL data definition language (DDL) commands, you already have a good head start in working with Hive tables.

5)What is CREATE Table in HIVE?
CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE iislogtest (
       date STRING,
       time STRING,
       username STRING,
       ip STRING,
       port INT,
       method STRING,
       uristem STRING,
       uriquery STRING,
       timetaken INT,
       useragent STRING,
       referrer STRING
)
ROW FORMAT DELIMITED FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',';

6) What is SELECT statement in Query?
SELECT *
FROM iislogtest; 
This simple query, simply returns all rows found in the iislogtest table.

Topologies in Apache Storm the concept you need to know

There are two main reasons why Apache Storm is so popular. The number one is it can connect to many sources. The number two is scalable. The other advantage is fault tolerant. That means, guaranteed data processing.
The map-reduce jobs process the data analytics in Hadoop. The topology in Storm is the real data processor. The co-ordination between Nimbus and Supervisor carried by Zookeeper What are topologiesThe jobs in Hadoop are similar to topology. The jobs run as per schedule defined.In Storm, the topology runs forever.A topology consists of many worker processes spread across many machines. A topology is a pre-defined design to get end product using your data.A topology comprises of 2 parts. These are Spout and bolts.The Spout is a funnel for topology Two nodes in StormMaster Node: similar to Hadoop job tracker. It runs on a daemon called Nimbus.Worker Node: It runs on a daemon called Supervisor. The Supervisor listens to the work assigned to each machine.Master NodeNimbus is re…

Three popular RPA tools functional differences

Robotic process automation is growing area and many IT developers across the board started up-skill in this popular area. I have written this post for the benefit of Software developers who are interested in RPA also called Robotic Process Automation.

In my previous post, I have described that total 12 tools are available in the market. Out of those 3 tools are most popular. Those are Automation anywhere, BluePrism and Uipath. Many programmers asked what are the differences between these tools. I have given differences of all these three RPA tools.

BluePrismBlue Prism has taken a simple concept, replicating user activity on the desktop, and made it enterprise strength. The technology is scalable, secure, resilient, and flexible and is supported by a comprehensive methodology, operational framework and provided as packaged software.The technology is developed and deployed within a “corridor of IT governance” and has sophisticated error handling and process modelling capabilities to ensu…
