Default Sandbox 2.0 Location for Job Logs

  • #45902
    Miguel Paraz

    I’m learning Hadoop programming using Sandbox 2.0.
    I’m trying out some MapReduce jobs and need to see the output of my logs.

    I’m logging using Apache commons logging – using level since that’s what I see as default in /etc/hadoop/

    I couldn’t find where the log entries are written. Where do they go?

    Hi Miguel,

    In 2.0 they are stored in /var/log/hadoop-yarn/yarn but this is for the nodemanager and resourcemanager
    The logs are configured to be stored in HDFS under /app-logs however you can pull these out if you know what the applicationId is (you should see this at the start of your job)
    You can run yarn logs -applicationId >> myfile.txt

    then you can look in myfile.txt for the yarn logs

    Thanks Dave! I have seen the logs I am looking for.
