Me too in same situation. I have scheduled exam on Monday 13th. Waiting for their reply.
Based on their reply i can reschedule my exam. I don’t know what they are expecting from us. I hope our question in valid one and not over coming any cloudera polices. But still they are not responding properly.
having read the upgrade of the exam I need some clarifications of the required skills to pass the exam:
- Ingest real-time and near-real-time streaming data into HDFS: in the previous version it includes 'using Flume', but know the skill is more generic. Do we need to learn Kafka too or can we freely choose what streaming tool to use?
- Apart from Spark RDDs, Spark DataFrames (Spark SQL), do we need to know Datasets as well?
- Supply command-line options to change your application configuration, such as increasing available memory: where can I get more information about this changes, are referring to the JVM?
Thanks in advance
