Hadoop cartoons - one day in the life of a Big Data developer

What is one to when his HBase application hangs, regardless of how he connects to the ZooKeeper? - Banging your head on the keyboard helps.

The possible reasons for this are

  • ZooKeeper/HBase configuration problems (check them out independently with 'hbase shell' and
  • HADOOP_CLASSPATH not configured correctly
  • Running tests from maven may also give you problem.
When your 'hadoop classpath' is a few pages long, and you run outside of maven, using this classpath, it will work.
