I am doing a MOOC on data science and hadoop, and so we have to use the cloudera VM.
I have a mac book pro, with a process 2.53 GHz Intel Core i5 and I have only 4GB of memory.
I downoaded Virtual Box, and then I imported this VM: https://downloads.cloudera.com/demo_vm/virtualbox/cloudera-quickstart-vm-5.4.2-0-virtualbox.zip.... When I try to launch it, it seems to work fine for few minutes, but then my computer becomes extremely slow to the point that I cannot do anything and I have to force it to turn off.
Is is related to my system capacity? Or is it related to the configuration?
Thanks a lot.
This looks to be due to the amount of RAM available to the VM. Below are the requirements for the VM from the download page which state the VM requires a minimum of 4GB of RAM to run. Since your Mac is already using some of the RAM to run, there is not enough left over for the VM. I hope this helps.
Older versions of WorkStation can be used to create a new VM using the same virtual disk (VMDK file), but some features in VMware Tools are not available.
|CDH and Cloudera Manager Version||RAM Required by VM|
|CDH 5 (default)||4+ GiB*|
|Cloudera Express||8+ GiB*|
|Cloudera Enterprise (trial)||10+ GiB*|
*Minimum recommended memory. If you are running workloads larger than the examples provided, consider allocating additional memory.
Hey cjervis, thanks a lot.
I was about considering buying a new mac with a quad-core processor... So apparently it is worth trying to put more memory before...
My minimum RAM currently is 16GB, if possible, so I am good for a few years. Then again I am the type of guy with a bazillion browser tabs open, watching a video and editing photos all at once. :)
Best of luck.
