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. For example:
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 bundle readme.
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 are ready:
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
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'"

Bigtop is selected as the project. Typically, charm issues are filed
deployment component with the latest stable release selected as the
affected version. Any uncertain fields may be left blank.
- (string) Apache Bigtop release version. The default, '1.2.1' will use the current GA release, Bigtop 1.2.1, for all hiera data, puppet recipes, and installable packages. Set this to 'master' to use the latest upstream bits.
- (string) Version of the cuda-repo deb to install. Valid options can be found at: http://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu1604/x86_64
- (boolean) Install the CUDA binaries if capable hardware is present (True by default). Set to False to disable CUDA installation regardless of capable hardware.
