This tests random and sequence HDFS I/O.
In order to build and run this test, you must put the HDFS and Hadoop-common jar files into your classpath. In the Hadoop install, these are found under share/hadoop/common/ share/hadoop/hdfs/
TODO: use Ivy.
You have to set some Java system properties when running the test.
Here is an example of how to run the test:
ANT\_OPTS="-Dhio.nthreads=5 -Dhio.ngigs.to.read=10 -Dhio.ngigs.in.file=10 -Dhio.hdfs.uri=hdfs://localhost:4000" ant compile jar run
It's also important to make sure libhadoop.so is in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH; otherwise, you won't get features like short-circuit local reads which are important for performance.
Alternately, you can directly run the jar with:
java -Dhio.nthreads=5 -Dhio.ngigs.to.read=1 -Dhio.ngigs.in.file=1 -Dhio.hdfs.uri=hdfs://localhost:6000 com.cloudera.HioBench
