Course Description

In this Skillsoft Aspire course, learners discover how to set up a Hadoop Cluster on the cloud and explore bundled web apps, the YARN Cluster Manager app and the HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System) NameNode UI. This 9-video course assumes a good understanding of what Hadoop is, and how HDFS enables processing of big data in parallel by distributing large data sets across a cluster; learners should also be familiar with running commands from the Linux shell, with some fluency in basic Linux file system commands. The course opens by exploring two web applications which are packaged with Hadoop, the UI for the YARN cluster manager, and the node name UI for HDFS. Learners then explore two shells which can be used to work with HDFS, the Hadoop FS shell and Hadoop DFS shell. Next, you will explore basic commands which can be used to navigate HDFS; discuss their similarities with Linux file system commands; and discuss distributed computing. In a closing exercise, practice identifying web applications used to explore and also monitor Hadoop.
