This is the documentation for Cloudera Manager 4.8.6. Documentation for other versions is available at Cloudera Documentation.

Cloudera Manager 4 and CDH 4 have reached End of Maintenance (EOM) on August 9, 2015. Cloudera will not support or provide patches for any of the Cloudera Manager 4 or CDH 4 releases after that date.

Testing the Installation

To begin testing, start the Cloudera Manager Admin Console. Once you've logged in, the left side of the screen should look a little like this:

What you see is a list of services currently running with their status information alongside. All your services should be running with Good Health. You can click on each service to view more detailed information about each service. You can also test your installation by either checking each Host's heartbeats, running a MapReduce job, or interacting with your cluster by running an existing Hue application.

Checking Host Heartbeats

One way to check whether all the Agents (hosts) are running is to look at the time since their last Heartbeat. You can do this by clicking the Hosts tab where you can see a list of all the Hosts along with the value of their Last Heartbeat. By default, every Agent must heartbeat successfully every 15 seconds. A recent value for the Last Heartbeat means that the Server and Agents are communicating successfully.

Running a MapReduce Job

  1. Log into a host in your cluster.
  2. Run the Hadoop example PiEstimator using one of the following commands:
    • Parcel installation - sudo -u hdfs hadoop jar /opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH/lib/hadoop-mapreduce/hadoop-mapreduce-examples.jar pi 10 100
    • Package installation - sudo -u hdfs hadoop jar /usr/lib/hadoop-mapreduce/hadoop-mapreduce-examples.jar pi 10 100
    or create and run the WordCount v1.0 application described in Hadoop Tutorial.
  3. View the results of running the job by selecting Activities > MAPREDUCE-1 Jobs from the top navigation bar:

    If you run the PiEstimator job on the MapReduce service you will see the following:

Testing with Hue

The ideal way to go about testing your clusters is by running a job. Short of that you could test your clusters by running one of the Hue web applications. Hue is a graphical user interface that allows you to interact with your clusters by running applications such as the Pig Editor, Cloudera Impala, Oozie, Job Browser, File Browser and so on.

  1. To do this, once logged into the Cloudera Manager Admin Console, from the list of Services on the left side of the screen, click on Hue.
  2. Click on the Hue Web UI tab which opens in a new window.
  3. Log in with the default credentials, username: admin, password: admin
  4. To test a Hue application, click on the appropriate icon in the navigation bar at the top of the browser window.

You can now browse HDFS, manage a Hive metastore and run Cloudera Impala queries, Pig scripts, or Oozie workflows. For more information, see Hue 2 User Guide.
