DMX-h Use Case Accelerator: HDFS Load Parallel

Article #: Product: Version:


Syncsort has provided a set of use case accelerators to help users understand how to access HDFS directly from DMExpress.

The HDFS Load Parallel use case accelerator is similar to DMX-h Use Case Accelerator: HDFS Load, except that it loads a large TPC-H lineitem data file. This solution uses a fixed partition scheme to create multiple target files with the same name, distinguished from one another by an automatically appended partition number. These target files are loaded into HDFS in parallel, leveraging available bandwidth to transfer more data simultaneously and improving load performance for large files.


HDFS Load Parallel UCA Description


The source file is defined as a UNIX text file residing on the local file system.


The target is defined to be a UNIX text file, and is specified with an HDFS connection to load directly to HDFS.

The parallelism is achieved by adding a Partition Scheme to the target:

Since the target file resides in HDFS, you can run this use case accelerator on any Linux system that has an HDFS client configured to connect to a Hadoop cluster.


The following attachments are available for running this UCA:
