Taught by a team which includes 2 Stanford-educated, ex-Googlers. This team has decades of practical experience in working with Java and with billions of rows of data.
Use Flume and Sqoop to import data to HDFS, HBase, and Hive from a variety of sources, including Twitter and MySQL
Let’s parse that.
Import data: Flume and Sqoop play a special role in the Hadoop ecosystem. They transport data from sources like local file systems, HTTP, MySQL and Twitter which hold/produce data to data stores like HDFS, HBase and Hive. Both tools come with built-in functionality and abstract away users from the complexity of transporting data between these systems.
Flume: Flume Agents can transport data produced by a streaming application to data stores like HDFS and HBase.
Sqoop: Use Sqoop to bulk import data from traditional RDBMS to Hadoop storage architectures like HDFS or Hive.
Practical implementations for a variety of sources and data stores ..
- Sources: Twitter, MySQL, Spooling Directory, HTTP
- Sinks: HDFS, HBase, Hive
Flume Agents, Flume Events, Event bucketing, Channel selectors, Interceptors
Sqoop features :
Sqoop import from MySQL, Incremental imports using Sqoop Jobs
Using discussion forums
What are the requirements?
- Knowledge of HDFS is a prerequisite for the course
- HBase and Hive examples assume basic understanding of HBase and Hive shells
- HDFS is required to run most of the examples, so you'll need to have a working installation of HDFS
What am I going to get from this course?
- Use Flume to ingest data to HDFS and HBase
- Use Sqoop to import data from MySQL to HDFS and Hive
- Ingest data from a variety of sources including HTTP, Twitter, and MySQL
What is the target audience?
- Yep! Engineers building an application with HDFS/HBase/Hive as the data store
- Yep! Engineers who want to port data from legacy data stores to HDFS
