Get Actionable Insights with DataQ’s Hadoop Testing/Hadoop Migration Testing

Hadoop is an open-source framework for storing and processing enormous datasets, known as big data. It consists of multiple components, including Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), Yet Another Resource Negotiator (YARN), MapReduce, and Hadoop Common. Hadoop allows you to uncover actionable insights from massive datasets. As a result, you can make informed business decisions.

To ensure data accuracy and reliability, you need to test your Hadoop application. It will help you to identify and fix issues quickly. By using DataQ, you can efficiently perform Hadoop testing. In this post, you will find all the details.

What is Hadoop testing?

Hadoop testing refers to the process of examining large and complex datasets. It enables you to identify and fix issues in the system quickly. As a result, your Hadoop application will deliver the best performance. Also, Hadoop testing helps you effectively enhance data accuracy and integrity. So, you can derive actionable insights, effectively make critical decisions, and grow your business.

What is Hadoop Migration testing?

What is Hadoop Migration testing?

It only felt yesterday when organizations moved to Hadoop clusters(on-prem) from more expensive RDBMS databases like Oracle, DB2, Netezza, Teradata, etc. However, in recent years, organizations have been moving from on-prem Hadoop to cloud Datawarehouse systems like Snowflake, Redshift, Synapse SQL pool, Google BigQuery, and more to reduce cost and improve performance.

Migrating to a cloud Data warehouse could be a daunting task. A lot of code written over the years in the Hadoop ecosystem should be migrated to cloud technologies. Hadoop Migration Testing validates that the new modern technologies in the cloud produce the same data as in the legacy Hadoop systems. The validation process can be very time-consuming and error-prone without an AI-based data validation engine built for this very use case. DataQ is built ground up to process massive data with few clicks quickly.

What is the necessity of Hadoop testing?

Hadoop stores and processes enormous datasets, ranging from gigabytes to petabytes in size. They are very complex, and as a result, you cannot examine the system with traditional sampling and manual testing methods. You need to look for a different solution.

This is where Hadoop testing comes into play. It is designed to handle the complexity of massive datasets. Therefore, it can help you efficiently examine the Hadoop system. You can quickly find the issues and take the necessary steps to fix them.

Also, Hadoop testing efficiently checks the quality of data. It closely examines various characteristics, like accuracy, consistency, validity, etc. In this way, it ensures high reliability.

How does Hadoop testing work?

How does Hadoop testing work?

Hadoop testing works through three different stages:

Data Staging Validation

Data staging validation is the first stage of Hadoop testing. It involves validating data from different sources, like RDBMS, blogs, social media, etc. The goal is to ensure that you pull the correct data into the system.

In this stage, you compare source data with the data pushed into the Hadoop system. It helps you to ensure that they match each other. As a result, you can verify if the correct data is loaded into the correct HDFS location.

MapReduce Validation

The second stage is MapReduce validation. Here, you analyze the business logic validation on every node to ensure the appropriate functionality of the MapReduce process. Also, it helps you to check the generation of the (key, value) pairs. Besides, it enables you to verify the implementation of aggregation or segregation rules on the data.

Output Validation Phase

The final stage of Hadoop testing is the output validation phase. Here, the output data files are generated. Based on your project requirement, you can move them to an Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) or any other system.

The output validation phase involves checking the proper application of transformation rules. Also, it checks data integrity. Besides, it compares the target data with the HDFS file system data. So, you can easily identify corrupted data.

What tools does DataQ utilize for Hadoop testing?

What tools does DataQ utilize for Hadoop testing?

DataQ offers world-class tools for performing Hadoop testing. Let’s take a look at them.

Apache Spark

Apache Spark is a lightning-fast unified analytics engine for big data. It can quickly process large-scale datasets. Apache Spark is an open-source solution. Also, it is very easy to use. It covers a wide range of workloads, like batch applications, iterative algorithms, interactive queries, etc.

MapReduce

MapReduce is an algorithm or data structure based on the YARN framework. It performs distributed processing in parallel Hoop clusters to process big data quickly. It deals with two essential tasks: Map and Reduce. Map handles data splitting and mapping. On the other hand, Reduce shuffles and breaks the data into smaller sets of tuples.

Apache Hive

Apache Hive is an open-source data warehouse tool. It is built on top of Hadoop. It allows you to read, write, and manage petabytes of data using SQL. Apache Hive is designed to deliver super-fast performance regardless of the data size. It is one of the best analytics tools for processing big data.

HBase

HBase is a distributed and column-oriented database. It is built on top of the Hadoop file system. It provides quick access to large and structured databases. HBase leverages the fault tolerance provided by the Hadoop File System (HDFS) to store sparse datasets. It is well suited for real-time data processing.

Looker

Looker is a big data analytics platform. It helps you explore, analyze and share real-time business analytics easily. It enables you to transform raw data into meaningful metrics quickly.

Apache Storm

Apache Storm is a free and open-source distributed system for real-time computations. It provides fault tolerance and scalability. Also, it offers the highest ingestion rates. Apache Storm is used to process streams of data in real-time with Hadoop.

How does DataQ perform Hadoop testing?

DataQ performs Hadoop testing by performing a series of examinations. Let’s take a look at them.

Data Ingestion: Data ingestion analyzes the data consumption rate of the system from different sources. Also, it examines how fast the system can take data into the underlying data store, like Mongo and Cassandra.

Data Processing: Data processing involves analyzing the speed of executing the queries. Also, it examines the speed of Map and Reduce tasks. Besides, it analyzes the data processing speed during the population of datasets in the underlying data store.

Sub-Component Performance Testing: It involves examining individual components in isolation. It allows you to analyze the performance of query and Map/Reduce tasks. As a result, you can quickly identify the bottlenecks.
