Running my first map-reduce program. I created a directory in hdfs using
hdfs dfs -mkdir input
The directories created this way reside in hdfs home dir i.e /usr/hdfs (..?) But I couldn't find the directory 'input' I created above anywhere in my linux OS. Any thoughts?
Best How To :
Actually we cannot see the hdfs directories directly so there are two methods to see the file in hdfs file system location
1st method is from terminal
hdfs dfs -ls /user/cloudera
so that you can see the files in hdfs filesystem in 'cloudera' named directory
2nd method is using the browser.
http://localhost:50070 in this you have to go to browse file system and see all files that are stored in hdfs file system.
