Module Version: 0.3   Source   Latest Release: Net-Hadoop-WebHDFS-0.8


Net::Hadoop::WebHDFS - Client library for Hadoop WebHDFS and HttpFs


  use Net::Hadoop::WebHDFS;
  my $client = Net::Hadoop::WebHDFS->new( host => 'hostname.local', port => 50070 );

  my $statusArrayRef = $client->list('/');

  my $contentData = $client->read('/data.txt');

  $client->create('/foo/bar/data.bin', $bindata);


This module supports WebHDFS v1 on Hadoop 1.x (and CDH4.0.0 or later), and HttpFs on Hadoop 2.x (and CDH4 or later). WebHDFS/HttpFs has two authentication methods: pseudo authentication and Kerberos, but this module supports pseudo authentication only.


Net::Hadoop::WebHDFS class method and instance methods.


Net::Hadoop::WebHDFS->new( %args ) :Net::Hadoop::WebHDFS

Creates and returns a new client instance with %args. If you are using HttpFs, set httpfs_mode = 1> and port = 14000>.

%args might be:

%options might be:

overwrite :Str = "true" or "false"
blocksize :Int
replication :Int
permission :Str = "0600"
buffersize :Int

$client->append($path, $body, %options) :Bool
