This talk introduces the audience to Apache Bigtop – a project aimed at developing packaging and tests within the Hadoop ecosystem. By making use of various packages available through Apache Bigtop, we would learn how to set up a cluster with Hadoop, Hive and HBase installed and configured in under 15 minutes. Subsequently, we will run some example MapReduce jobs, Hive and HBase queries to validate the setup.
Apache Bigtop is a project aimed at development of packaging and tests within the Hadoop ecosystem. Bigtop packages various Big Data related open source projects like Hadoop, Hive, Hbase, etc. and makes them available as architecture specific deb/rpm packages. These packages can then be easily installed using available Operating System installers like apt-get, zypper or yum. One of the longer term goals of Apache Bigtop is to serve as a reference to eventually get Hadoop introduced into most Linux distributions.
Time permitting, we will introduce another important function of Apache Bigtop – interoperability testing. Given the dependencies between various projects and their sheer number of versions, it is a daunting task test the interoperability of various components. One of goals of Bigtop is to address this problem and we will learn how Bigtop does so.
The talk will end with a short Q/A session.
Mark Grover is a committer on Apache Bigtop, a committer and PMC member on Apache Sentry (incubating) and a contributor to
