    On the Hadoop Administration exam 1.x there was a question regarding a program “Block Spanner”. There is nothing in the Hortonworks certified course notes on this question. There were some other questions I wish to dispute but this one is has completely baffled me. Does this program even exist?

    Sorry please disregard this post. It’s “Scanner” not “Spanner” – no wonder reference to google’s new GFS kept turning up 😉
