Some evidences were found that BigTop project (see first two links above) is seen as a power behind commercial offerings of some of the leading Hadoop vendors. Here how interesting it gets:
- you can get HortonWorks' stack AMI from this link to play with and learn about Hadoop and stuff.
- now let's see what they are using to power-up their distro
$ grep -i bigtop install_oozie.sh: --extra-dir=DIR path to Bigtop distribution filesnow if you look a bit further, there some more hints that BigTop has been used big time, but that hasn't been hidden away very well...
install_oozie.sh: --build-dir=DIR path to Bigtop distribution files
install_oozie.sh:if [ -e /usr/libexec/bigtop-detect-javahome ]; then
install_oozie.sh: . /usr/libexec/bigtop-detect-javahome
install_oozie.sh:elif [ -e /usr/lib/bigtop-utils/bigtop-detect-javahome ]; then
install_oozie.sh: . /usr/lib/bigtop-utils/bigtop-detect-javahome
oozie.init:if [ -e /usr/libexec/bigtop-detect-javahome ]; then
oozie.init: . /usr/libexec/bigtop-detect-javahome
oozie.init:elif [ -e /usr/lib/bigtop-utils/bigtop-detect-javahome ]; then
oozie.init: . /usr/lib/bigtop-utils/bigtop-detect-javahome
oozie.init:if [ -e /usr/libexec/bigtop-detect-javahome ]; thenWow, I feel proud, guys, I really am. Now I can officially claim that my ideas are giving the push to some of the biggest vendors of what is considered the hottest technology on the market ;) Although, they are unlikely to admit this publicly, predicating on the above example.
I will keep you posted on the development.
