I tried using the external table method but I run out of memory. My mongo collection (table2) has 10 million records (0.755 GB) and reading from it works. After the insert task fails I do a count on the native table (table1) and it contains 0 rows.

My query looks like this: "INSERT INTO table1 SELECT * FROM table2", if I add "LIMIT 1000" it works, however I need to migrate the entire collection. I attached the output from beeline.

@Hamza FRIOUA I wrote this awhile back for a customer. The version may have changed but it should still be relevant. Essentially, it creates a test MongoDB instance, loads data, installs the storagehandler, creates a Hive table.

1. Install MongoDB: sudo yum install mongodb-org You may need to setup the following mongodb.repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d [mongodb] name=MongoDB Repository baseurl=http://downloads-distro.mongodb.org/repo/redhat/os/x86_64/ gpgcheck=0 enabled=1

2. Start mongodb: sudo service mongod start

3. Enter the mongo CLI by typing mongo

4. http://docs.mongodb.org/manual/tutorial/generate-test-data/ Type the following to add test data to db.testData. MongoDB will implicitly create the database if it isn’t already created. The default is “25” records but this can be increased if needed: for (var i = 1; i <= 25; i++) {db.testData.insert( { x : i } )}

5. To display the data type: db.testData.find()

6. http://docs.mongodb.org/ecosystem/tutorial/getting-started-with-hadoop/

7. From /root, download the mongo-hadoop git repo: git clone https://github.com/mongodb/mongo-hadoop.git

8. Navigate to /root/mongo-hadoop and type ./gradlew jar

9. Place .jar files in usr\lib\hadoop\lib and usr\lib\hive\lb mongo-hadoop-core-1.4.0-SNAPSHOT.jar mongo-hadoop-hive-1.4.0-SNAPSHOT.jar mongo-hadoop-pig-1.4.0-SNAPSHOT.jar

10. Type hive on the command line to start the Hive shell

****Create Hive Table*****

CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE testdb ( id STRING, x INT )

STORED BY 'com.mongodb.hadoop.hive.MongoStorageHandler'

WITH SERDEPROPERTIES('mongo.columns.mapping' = '{"id":"_id", "x":"x"}') TBLPROPERTIES('mongo.uri'='mongodb://127.0.0.1:27017/db.testData');

***********WARNING: If you leave out the EXTERNAL command, Hive will use the MongoDB collection as the primary source. Dropping the Hive table will remove the collection from Mongo. ***********

11. You should now be able to see your MongoDB data by typing “SELECT * FROM testdb;"

Hope it helps!
