HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

installation extremely slow?

    I installed through ambari-server, then it proceeded to start components.

    somehow everything is going forward, but extremely slowly, the start up process probably took half an hour. I went onto the boxes (I have only 5 in total ), the CPU doesn’t have much load. on the Ambari UI, the busy jobs are shown to have blue gears in front of them, what does that mean? “on-going/running” ?

    Hi Yang,

    An end to end installation usually takes approx 1 hour. Dependent on network speed etc.
    You should see that the processes are starting in the task bars in ambari.
