Flume and Sqoop for Ingesting Big Data


  • Default user
    Janani Ravi


Taught by a 4 person team including 2 Stanford-educated, ex-Googlers  and 2 ex-Flipkart Lead Analysts. This team has decades of practical experience in working with Java and with billions of rows of data.

Use Flume and Sqoop to import data to HDFS, HBase and Hive from a variety of sources, including Twitter and MySQL

Let’s parse that.

Import data : Flume and Sqoop play a special role in the Hadoop ecosystem. They transport data from sources like local file systems, HTTP, MySQL and Twitter which hold/produce data to data stores like HDFS, HBase and Hive. Both tools come with built-in functionality and abstract away users from the complexity of transporting data between these systems.

Flume: Flume Agents can transport data produced by a streaming application to data stores like HDFS and HBase.

Sqoop: Use Sqoop to bulk import data from traditional RDBMS to Hadoop storage architectures like HDFS or Hive.

What's Covered:

Practical implementations for a variety of sources and data stores ..

Sources : Twitter, MySQL, Spooling Directory, HTTP

Sinks : HDFS, HBase, Hive

.. Flume features :

Flume Agents, Flume Events, Event bucketing, Channel selectors, Interceptors

.. Sqoop features :

Sqoop import from MySQL, Incremental imports using Sqoop Jobs

Who is the target audience?

Yep! Engineers building an application with HDFS/HBase/Hive as the data store
Yep! Engineers who want to port data from legacy data stores to HDFS

Loony Corn

A 4-person team;ex-Google; Stanford, IIM Ahmedabad, IIT


Loonycorn is us, Janani Ravi, Vitthal Srinivasan, Swetha Kolalapudi and Navdeep Singh. Between the four of us, we have studied at Stanford, IIM Ahmedabad, the IITs and have spent years (decades, actually) working in tech, in the Bay Area, New York, Singapore and Bangalore.


Janani: 7 years at Google (New York, Singapore); Studied at Stanford; also worked at Flipkart and Microsoft


Vitthal: Also Google (Singapore) and studied at Stanford; Flipkart, Credit Suisse and INSEAD too


Swetha: Early Flipkart employee, IIM Ahmedabad and IIT Madras alum


Navdeep: longtime Flipkart employee too, and IIT Guwahati alum


We think we might have hit upon a neat way of teaching complicated tech courses in a funny, practical, engaging way.


We hope you will try our offerings, and think you'll like them :-)
