hadoop problems with -files option when run submitting job from remote node
posted 3 years ago
I run hadoop map red jobs from a remote machine ( windows ) using the command
-jar XMLDriver.jar -files junkwords.txt -libjars XMLInputFormat.jar
and submit job to a linux box which runs hadoop.
I know that this distribution cache file will be sent to the HDFS on my remote box ( Am i right ??? )
But in mapper code am unable to retrive this file name using the api
Path cacheFiles = DistributedCache.getLocalCacheFiles(conf);
fileName = cacheFiles.toString();
I use DistributedCache.addCacheFile() api and symlinks api, if so wht is the parameter URI I need to mention as I dont know where the files would be copied by hadoop?
I tried to copy the junkwords.txt file manually to hdfs and specified the hdfs path here in command line as
java -jar XMLDriver.jar -files /users/junkwords.txt -libjars XMLInputFormat.jar
This throws a
when I job the job on my local windows machine.
What is the solution for accessing the distributed cached file in mapper when passed from remote machine using -file command line option?
With a little knowledge, a
cast iron skillet
is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
