Re: Oryx questions welcome

There is no specific separate Quick Start VM, but, there is no need for one really. The standard Quick Start VM is fine. Oryx is just two binary .jar files to run (https://github.com/cloudera/oryx/releases) so just download them anywhere onto the VM and run them per the instructions. There's nothing more that would have needed setup in a canned VM anyway.

Re: Oryx questions welcome

I can use the quickstart VM with CDH 4.4 and add just these 2 binary jars? I was confused ,since the Github was mentioning to use CDH4.6.0 as the default one for Hadoop 2.0.x. I will try as you suggested and will let know issues if any. Thank you so much.

Re: Oryx questions welcome

Yes, any CDH 4.x version should be fine. If you are using MR1, you need the different MR1 compiled binary. If you use CDH5, you need the Hadoop 2.2+ binary. These are all available as downloads.

Re: Oryx questions welcome

hi,

 

I tried setting up Oryx on CDH quick start VM and I ran a sample collaborative filtering example with ALS algorithm on local mode which came out good.

 

But when i try with an actual data with 300 MB local mode , i do not see any progress(X,Y folder cteation etc), i only see stats.json, computation.conf file &  _SUCEESS(0KB) only getting created ,  nothing else , How can i ensure the computation is running, is there any other  location where logs are generated?

 

Regards

Suresh

Re: Oryx questions welcome

It would be ideal to set up a new thread in this forum for a new question, by the way. If you could please do that, and record some more basic info about how you're running this -- local or distributed mode? -- I could try to help.

Re: Oryx questions welcome

Hi Sean,

Could you please elaborate more on how to install Oryx to work with Hadoop 2.2+?
<snip>
Hadoop 2.2+ Note
To use Oryx with Hadoop 2.2+, including Hadoop 2.3, it is necessary to compile against different binaries. To do so, use the hadoop220+ profile in the main pom.xml instead:

mvn -phadoop220+ ...
</snip>

I am a newbie in the Cloudera world.

Hello all, please open new threads for questions and do not reply to this one.
