Word count input files

Anyone successfully run the word count program from Module 4? Where are the input files located? All I see in the input folder is a Help file with "grep" commands.

Hi Elizabeth

Did you try watching the WordCount video in Module 3

Run your first MapReduce program - WordCount

Its a short 15 minute video which explains all the steps involved

Try watching it and following the steps - if you are using CDH4 - then create the files and folders under /user/cloudera



Hi Elizabeth,

I have done it successfully. I followed the wordcount video and created a words.xt file and copied to the wordcount input directory and then ran the copyFromLocal to move to hdfs.

Below are the commands form my console
cloudera@cloudera-vm:~/wordcount$ ls
cloudera@cloudera-vm:~/wordcount$ cd input
cloudera@cloudera-vm:~/wordcount/input$ ls
cloudera@cloudera-vm:~/wordcount/input$ hadoop fs -copyFromLocal
words.txt /wordcount/input/words.txt
cloudera@cloudera-vm:~/wordcount/input$ hadoop fs -ls

input wordcount.jar
cloudera@cloudera-vm:~/wordcount$ hadoop jar wordcount.jar WordCount
/wordcount/input/words.txt /wordcount/output

Good Luck!!
