Flume and Sqoop for Ingesting Big Data
What you'll learn
- 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
- 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
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 features :
Flume Agents, Flume Events, Event bucketing, Channel selectors, Interceptors
.. Sqoop features :
Sqoop import from MySQL, Incremental imports using Sqoop Jobs
Who this course is for:
- 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
Loonycorn is us, Janani Ravi and Vitthal Srinivasan. Between us, we have studied at Stanford, been admitted to IIM Ahmedabad and have spent years working in tech, in the Bay Area, New York, Singapore and Bangalore.
Janani: 7 years at Google (New York, Singapore); Studied at Stanford; also worked at Flipkart and Microsoft
Vitthal: Also Google (Singapore) and studied at Stanford; Flipkart, Credit Suisse and INSEAD too
We think we might have hit upon a neat way of teaching complicated tech courses in a funny, practical, engaging way, which is why we are so excited to be here on Udemy!
We hope you will try our offerings, and think you'll like them :-)
