Installing HDFS Google Cloud Connector

Hi,

 

I'm looking to ingest a large amount of data from a public google cloud bucket, but our cluster is currently missing the google cloud connector. I thought copying the connector jar to /opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH/lib/hadoop would be sufficient, but after running the below command I am receiving the following error: No FileSystem for scheme: gs.

 

hdfs dfs -cp gs://gnomad-public/release-170228/gnomad.genomes.r2.0.1.sites.vds /my/local/hdfs/filesystem

 

Are any additional steps beyond this necessary?

Re: Installing HDFS Google Cloud Connector

It took a bit to track it down but here is the info you are looking for. There are really just two steps, download and put the jar in the Hadoop classpath, as you have already. The other step is to add the gs settings to the core-site.xml so that HDFS is aware of it as a additional filesystem (i.e. knows the class name and impl name).

Re: Installing HDFS Google Cloud Connector

Appreciate the quick response! I actually was originally following the guide you posted. In particular, I modified core-site.xml located at /etc/hadoop/conf as shown below. However, when running hdfs dfs -ls gs://gnomad-public (a public gcloud bucket), I get the following ClassNotFound: java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: Class com.google.cloud.hadoop.fs.gcs.GoogleHadoopFileSystem

 

It appears that this issue is tied to the connector jar not being part of the classpath, which is odd as I created a symbolic link to it both in /opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH/lib/hadoop and /opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH/lib/hadoop-mapreduce. (The file is actually located in /opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH/jars - this is where all of the default connector jars were initially placed and I figured following the default placement would be the best practice).

Did you restart HDFS after these changes?

[ Edited ]

Based on the eror that you have  , the jar file is clearing missing a .class file (GoogleHadoopFileSystem)

you can extract the jar using 7 zip  any tool to inspect . 

 

.class file path that it is missing .

com.google.cloud.hadoop.fs.gcs.GoogleHadoopFileSystem

 

Solution is to download a fresh required jar , extra and check if it is having the all the .class file and add that to the path . this should resolve the error.
