Using Flux Hadoop requires a Flux user account but does not require an active Flux allocation. Information on getting a Flux account can be found on the Flux User Guide page. You only need to pay attention to steps 1, 2, and 4 in order to use Flux-Hadoop. Please note that in step 4 rather than logging into flux-login.arc-ts.umich.edu, you need to log into flux-hadoop-login.arc-ts.umich.edu. This video will help teach you some basic Linux navigation commands if needed.
When you create an account, you will automatically be added to our default queue. If you are using our Hadoop cluster for a class or another specific purpose, or you need a significant allocation, please open a ticket with us so you can be added to the appropriate queue. In many of the examples in this user guide, there is a “–queue <your_queue>” flag. Please fill in the name of your queue when running this examples, or simply “default” if you do not have one.
