Starting My Hadoop Tools

NiFi can interface directly with Hive, HDFS, HBase, Flume and Phoenix. And I can also trigger Spark and Flink through Kafka and Site-To-Site. Sometimes I need to run some Pig scripts. Apache Pig is very stable and has a lot of functions and tools that make for some smart processing. You can easily augment and add this piece to a larger pipeline or part of the process.

Pig Setup

I like to use Ambari to install the HDP 2.5 clients on my NiFi box to have access to all the tools I may need.

Then I can just do:

yum install pig

Pig to Apache NiFi 1.0.0

ExecuteProcess

We call a shell script that wraps the Pig script.

Output of script is stored to HDFS: hdfs dfs -ls /nifi-logs

Shell Script

export JAVA_HOME=/opt/jdk1.8.0_101/ 
pig -x local -l /tmp/pig.log -f /opt/demo/pigscripts/test.pig

You can run in different Pig modes like local, mapreduce and tez. You can also pass in parameters or the script.

Pig Script

messages = LOAD '/opt/demo/HDF/centos7/tars/nifi/nifi-1.0.0.2.0.0.0-579/logs/nifi-app.log';
warns = FILTER messages BY $0 MATCHES '.*WARN+.*';
DUMP warns
store warns into 'warns.out'

This is a basic example from the internet, with the NIFI 1.0 log used as the source.

As an aside, I run a daily script with the schedule 1 * * * * ? to clean up my logs.

Simply: /bin/rm -rf /opt/demo/HDF/centos7/tars/nifi/nifi-1.0.0.2.0.0.0-579/logs/*2016*

PutHDFS

Hadoop Configuration: /etc/hadoop/conf/core-site.xml

Pick a directory and store away.
