I want to upload 8 gb of tsv file into my quick start vm of cdh5. 3. I tried with bulk load of import tsv as well using cat file.tsv |hbase shell. But it always show outofmemory error. I tried to read tsv file using java and write to hbase table directly but againwd failed. I am sure it is issue of hbase memory so please do let me know how I resolve this problem.
