MapReduce is a well-known programming model designed for generating and processing large data. There are various MapReduce implementations. One widely known and used one may be Hadoop. Benchmarking MapReduce frameworks gets to be important. Faraz Ahmad et al. developed a benchmark suite: PUMA MapReduce Benchmark. During our work on MapReduce, we developed a benchmark suite […]
TeraSort is one of Hadoop’s widely used benchmarks. Hadoop’s distribution contains both the input generator and sorting implementations: the TeraGen generates the input and TeraSort conducts the sorting. Here, we provide a short tutorial for using the Hadoop TeraSort benchmark. TeraGen generates random data that can be used as input data for a subsequent running […]

Hadoop’s namenode and datanodes expose a bunch of TCP ports used by Hadoop’s daemons to communicate to each other or listen directly to users’ requests. These ports information are needed by both the Hadoop users and cluster administrators to write programs or configure firewalls/gateways accordingly. A post written by Philip Zeyliger from Cloudera’s blog summarizes the […]
