Hadoop is a software platform that lets one easily write and run applications that process vast amounts of data.
This charm provides a simplified connection point for client / workload services which require access to Apache Hadoop. This connection is established via the Apache Bigtop gateway.
The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the
distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers
using a simple programming model.
This charm facilitates communication between Hadoop components of an
Apache Bigtop cluster and workload applications.
This charm requires Juju 2.0 or greater. If Juju is not yet set up, please
follow the getting-started instructions prior to deploying this charm.
This charm is intended to be deployed via one of the apache bigtop bundles.
juju deploy hadoop-processing
This will deploy an Apache Bigtop cluster with a client unit preconfigured to
work with the cluster. More information about this deployment can be found in the
Charms can be deployed in environments with limited network access. To deploy
in this environment, configure a Juju model with appropriate proxy and/or
mirror options. See Configuring Models for more information.
Apache Bigtop charms provide extended status reporting to indicate when they
This is particularly useful when combined with watch to track the on-going
progress of the deployment:
watch -n 2 juju status
The message column will provide information about a given unit's state.
This charm is ready for use once the status message indicates that it is
ready with hdfs and/or yarn.
This charm provides a smoke-test action that can be used to verify the
application is functioning as expected. Run the action as follows:
juju run-action plugin/0 smoke-test
Watch the progress of the smoke test actions with:
watch -n 2 juju show-action-status
Eventually, the action should settle to status: completed. If it
reports status: failed, the application is not working as expected. Get
more information about a specific smoke test with:
juju show-action-output <action-id>
This charm includes Hadoop command line utilities that can be used
to verify information about the cluster.
Show the dfsadmin report on the command line with the following:
juju run --application plugin "su hdfs -c 'hdfs dfsadmin -report'"
