I got a zip that contains dfs directory. this directory contains following directory
data name namesecondary
Now if i open name or namesecondary they contain current directory with files like "edits_0000000000000000001-0000000000000000004" "edits_inprogress_0000000000000000005" "fsimage_0000000000000000000" "VERSION" etc etc
Data directory contains current directory and then more files and directories in that.
Look like this is dump of some hadoop directories
Now question is how to retrieve files from this. i guess this is some sort of hadoop archive and i need to restore it
Please help me out
It looks like that zip files has namespace data. I am not sure what will be the use of this if you are trying to restore in different cluster.
There was a situation when few edit logs were missing and namenode did not come up. I used the same setup to restore edit logs to catchup with txn id mentioned in name node logs.
this is the same comment i posted accedently above
absolutely no idea about this this is part of challenge i got from a potential employer and i don't want to ask him how to get challenge files from there as it look like this is part of challenge that how i retrieve information from there. it look like that i need to restore it with new hadoop installation administration is not what i am good in so step to do so will be highly appreciated
