Hadoop Data Integration

Printer-friendly versionE-Mail

The HDFS to HPCC (H2H) Connector allows read/write access to HDFS data repositories.

This connector provides access to HDFS data files from HPCC. The connector provides ECL macros to easily populate ECL datasets of the HPCC Systems platform with HDFS data, and the ability to create HDFS files based on HPCC data. A libhdfs (native API provided by Hadoop) based connector, and a webhdfs (web based API provided by Hadoop) implementation are provided. Please view the archive for previous versions.

*****************************************************************

Known Limitations and Release Notes for H2H 1.4.4-1 and Web H2H 1.4.4-1
  • Due to recent changes, it is required that you uninstall any previous versions of H2H before installing 1.x releases.
  • LibHDFS based connector requires libhdfs.so, which requires local installation of Hadoop
  • WebHDFS based conector package notes:
    • Requires libcurl
    • Webhdfs must be enabled on target HDFS system
    • Target HDFS datanode hostnames must be resolvable locally (migh require adding entries in local hosts file)
    • PipeOutAndMerge not supported, only PipeOut. User responsible for merging file parts on Hadoop side
  • When installing the rpm (centos and opensuse) use the following command to install the plugin:
    sudo rpm -Uvh --nodeps hpccsystems-.rpm
  • We have seen some issues with CSV text qualifiers (or escape characters). If your data has field values containing escape characters, in rare cases, your data may not PipeIn correctly (there could be data corruption and/or record loss in the resulting dataset). This doesn’t affect your original data.
  • Occasionally, we have seen instances where the LD Library path is not set up correctly. This causes an error when the libjvm.so cannot be found. Follow the steps in the “HDFS to HPCC Connector” Document in the “Editing and distributing the Configuration file” section If you get the following error:
    …error while loading shared libraries: libjvm.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
