Pig Forum

help required with pig scripts that deal with SnortLoader

  • #30018
    Rishika Todi

    I have been trying to execute the command – ” pig -x local -f pig/examples/basic_snort.pig -param pcap=/data/web.pcap ” in order to load the pcap file using SnortLoader. Though the script contains “DUMP snort_alerts” , I am not able to view any output on the screen . Instead the records are saved at a location that is not traceable. The log file also doesn’t exist.
    I get the output that says “Successfully stored records in: “file:/tmp/temp-476666149/tmp536942302” , whereas I’m unable to find any such directory in my file system.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Hi Rishika,
    That looks like a local folder. Are you able to run the script via the grunt shell?
