Importing multiple .CSV files to Hbase using importtsv

New Contributor

Hi community! 

 

I am attempting to import multiple .csv files to HBase using importtsv. So far I have only read about people importing single files. Is this even possible, can I just run the import on the files individually and then import the HFiles? I'd appreciate any tips on how I go about that. 

 

Thank you!

You can pass an input directory to the ImportTSV tool, where your directory
can carry any number of files. It is not limited to a single file unless
you pass a single file (instead of a directory) to it.
