Create a box which includes

  • Oracle Java 8
  • Apache Hadoop 1.2.1
  • Apache Hive 1.0.0
  • Mysql 5.5
  • Apache Sqoop 1.4.4
  • Elasticsearch 1.4



Clone this project to local machine and run

vagrant up

This would up the ubuntu server box and install some packages. Once running is done, you should see the "Good luck!" message, so everything shoud be ready.

  • SSH to VM

      vagrant ssh
  • Keys for Self-SSH:

# For starting hadoop without asking the password:
ssh-keygen -t dsa -P '' -f /home/vagrant/.ssh/id_dsa
cat /home/vagrant/.ssh/ >> /home/vagrant/.ssh/authorized_keys
  • Prepare for first run:
# Create hdfs folder
mkdir /home/vagrant/hdfs
chmod -R 777 /home/vagrant/hdfs/

# Format Hadoop HDFS
hadoop namenode -format -force

# Start Hadoop

# Preparing HDFS for Hive
hadoop fs -mkdir /tmp 
hadoop fs -mkdir /user/hive/warehouse
hadoop fs -mkdir /tmp/hive
hadoop fs -chmod a+rw /tmp/hive
  • Starting Hive

  • For testing, create a sample table

      hive>CREATE TABLE pokes (foo INT, bar STRING);
  • Use Sqoop

      sqoop help
  • Use MySql

      mysql -uroot -proot

Access DFS on browser: http://hadoop-hive-elasticsearch:50070/dfshealth.jsp

Access job tracker on browser: http://hadoop-hive-elasticsearch:50030/jobtracker.jsp

Test import data from mysql to hive

  • Move to /vagrant

      cd /vagrant
  • Create mysql database

      mysql -uroot -proot create database test_db
  • Import sample database to mysql

      mysql test_db -uroot -proot < hedgefund-data.sql
  • Create a Hive database called "test_db"

      hive> create database test_db;
  • Import mysql table to Hive

      sqoop import --verbose --fields-terminated-by ',' --connect jdbc:mysql://localhost/test_db --table filings --username root --password root --hive-import --warehouse-dir /user/hive/warehouse/test_db.db --fields-terminated-by ',' --split-by id --hive-database test_db --hive-table filings


  • filings a sample table.
  • dev-hadoop is forwarding to automatic, this is private ip of Virtual machine, you can change in Vagrantfile
  • When vagrant up again, you must start hadoop manualy too.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
