9 Recommended Steps to create Hadoop Cluster

hadoop cluster
9 Steps to perform to setup hadoop cluster on your PC/Laptop in your centos either in local or virtual machine.

Step 1:  Installing Sun Java on Linux. Commands to execute for the same:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:flexiondotorg/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin
sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun

Step 2:  Create Hadoop User. Commands to execute for the same:

$sudo addgroup hadoop
$sudo adduser —ingroup hadoop hduser

Step 3:  Install SSH Server if not already present. Commands are:

$ sudo apt-get install openssh-server
$ su - hduser
$ ssh-keygen -t rsa -P ""
$ cat $HOME/.ssh/id_rsa.pub >> $HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys

Step 4:  Installing Hadoop. Commands for the same are:
$wget http://www.eng.lsu.edu/mirrors/apache/hadoop/core/hadoop-0.22.0/hadoop-0.22.0.tar.gz
$ cd /home/hduser
$ tar xzf hadoop-0.22.2.tar.gz
$ mv hadoop-0.22.2 hadoop

Step 5:  Edit .bashrc. Commands:
# Set Hadoop-related environment variables
export HADOOP_HOME=/home/hduser/hadoop
# Set JAVA_HOME (we will also configure JAVA_HOME directly for Hadoop later on)
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun

Step 6:  Update hadoop-env.sh
Here we need to only update the JAVA_HOME variable, we just need to open the file from text editor.

$vi /home/hduser/hadoop/conf/hadoop-env.sh
And update the following:
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun

Step 7:  Update the files residing in the conf folder.  The three main files are:
Core-site.xml
Mapred-site.xml
Hdfs-site.xml
Here we need to change the value of namenode and jobtracker to where we want to run.

Step 8:  Start the hadoop cluster, using command.
Start-all.sh

Step 9:  Check if all the processes are up and running, using command:

Jps
That’s it. The cluster should be up and running with the following 5 processes:

  • NameNode
  • SecondaryNameNode
  • DataNode
  • JobTracker
  • TaskTracker
If we see all these processes, it means our installation is successful and the cluster is up and running.

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…
