  1. Check out and in GitHub

  2. If you haven't cloned the CloudxLab GitHub repository, then clone it in your home folder in web console using the below command

    git clone ~/cloudxlab
  3. Else, update the local copy

    cd ~/cloudxlab
    git pull origin master
  4. Go to same_dna directory

    cd ~/cloudxlab/hdpexamples/python-streaming/same_dna/
  5. Run the MapReduce code using Hadoop streaming. Please make sure to save output in mapreduce-programming/same_dna directory inside your home directory in HDFS. Run the below command

    hadoop jar /usr/hdp/ -input /data/mr/dna/dna.txt -output mapreduce-programming/same_dna -mapper -file -reducer -file
  6. Check the frequency of characters by typing below command.

    hadoop fs -cat mapreduce-programming/same_dna/*
