Not able to execute Python based Hadoop Streaming jobs

I have a 5 node hadoop cluster on which I can execute the following streaming job successfully

 

 sudo -u hdfs hadoop jar /usr/lib/hadoop-0.20-mapreduce/contrib/streaming/hadoop-streaming.jar -input /sample/apat63_99.txt -output /foo1 -mapper 'wc -l'-numReduceTasks 0

But when I try to execute a streaming job using python

sudo -u hdfs hadoop jar /usr/lib/hadoop-0.20-mapreduce/contrib/streaming/hadoop-streaming.jar -input /sample/apat63_99.txt -output /foo5 -mapper 'AttributeMax.py 8'-file '/tmp/AttributeMax.py'-numReduceTasks 1

I get an error

In my job tracker console I see errors

The python code itself is pretty simple

#!/usr/bin/env pythonimport sys
index = int(sys.argv[1])max =0for line in sys.stdin
    fields = line.strip().split(",")if fields[index].isdigit():        val = int(fields[index])if(val > max):            max = val
        else:print max

Re: Not able to execute Python based Hadoop Streaming jobs

The "Broken pipe" suggests that the child Python process failed. I'd add logging statements in the Python code to log to a local file. You should also add a global catch-all, to log any fatal errors before exit.

> if fields[index].isdigit():

That is not safe. What if your input line doesn't have that many fields. Same for:

> val = int(fields[index])

It'll fail if that field cannot be converted to an int.

I changed my python code to 

 

#!/usr/bin/env python
import sys, random
file = open("/tmp/log.txt", "w")
for line in sys.stdin:
file.write("line: " + line + "\n")
file.close()

 

When i run my job, I see exactly the same error and the file /tmp/log.txt is not created on any machine. so I guess the script is not even being invoked I suppose.

I was able to solve the problem. I have to specify "python" as well in the mapper like

 

sudo -u hdfs hadoop jar /usr/lib/hadoop-0.20-mapreduce/contrib/streaming/hadoop-streaming.jar -input /sample/cite75_99.txt -output /foo -mapper 'python RandomSample.py 10' -file RandomSale.py -numReduceTasks 1
