Install CDH5 on YARN - pseudo-distributed - example job hangs


Install CDH5 on YARN - pseudo-distributed - example job hangs

New Contributor

Hi, I am following the instructions on installing CDH5 on YARN on a single node in pseudo-distributed mode outlined here:


Everything has worked smoothly for the most part until I reached the section about running an example application with YARN:

Run an example Hadoop job to grep with a regular expression in your input data.

$ hadoop jar /usr/lib/hadoop-mapreduce/hadoop-mapreduce-examples.jar grep input output23 'dfs[a-z.]+'


At this point I get the following warning messages and the job hangs:


$ hadoop jar /usr/lib/hadoop-mapreduce/hadoop-mapreduce-examples-2.6.0-cdh5.6.0.jar grep input output23  'dfs[a-z.]+'

16/03/15 09:29:02 INFO mapreduce.Job: Running job: job_1458035550745_0007

I am not sure how I can resolve this. I tried setting and unsetting HADOOP_MAPRED_HOME and a few other things but to no avail. I also took a look at the url to track the job and all I could see was that the apps were in a pending state and nothing was running. What am I missing?
