20 Chapter 1 How to do it... Let us set up Hadoop by setting up the JobTracker and TaskTrackers. 1. In each machine, create a directory for Hadoop data. Let's call this directory HADOOP_ DATA_DIR. Then create three directories, HADOOP_DATA_DIR/data, HADOOP_ DATA_DIR/local, and HADOOP_DATA_DIR/name. 2. Set up SSH keys to all machines so that we can log in to all from the master node. The Setting up HDFS recipe describes the SSH setup in detail. 3. gz command. 0 branch distributions. 4. sh file by uncommenting the JAVA_HOME line and point it to your local Java installation.
7. Create a directory as the mount point: >mkdir /u/hdfs 8. Execute the following command from the build/contrib/fuse-dfs/ directory. You have to execute this command with root privileges. Make sure that the HADOOP_HOME and JAVA_HOME environmental variables are set properly in the root environment as well. The optional –d parameter enables the debug mode. It would be helpful to run the following command in the debug mode to identify any error when you run it for the first time. The rw parameter mounts the filesystem read-write (ro for read-only).
A safe approach is to include all the jar files in $HADOOP_HOME and in the $HADOOP_ HOME/lib. jar:.... Ant build script to generate the classpath Add the following Ant target to the build file given in step 2 of the HDFS Java API recipe. xml script is provided in the HDFS_C_ API folder of the source package for this chapter.
