Hello, just recently downloaded and installed the sandbox (deployed on VirtualBox) on my laptop and am at the Pig tutorial. I have created the script, syntax check is ok, explain plan shows no issues, and I am executing the job.
The blue progress bar gets to about 5-10% and does not continue.
I noticed in Windows task manager that my disk I/O is pegged at 100% so i decided to reduce the data set from the default amount to only about 200 “IBM” records equaling 15kb. However, the issue persists…disk is pegged at 100%.
Also, I’ve observed via Ambari that various host components will restart. Specifically I’ve seen TaskTracker and the HBase RegionServer.
Hardware: Lenovo T410 with 8gb of RAM. i5 CPU @ 2.4 ghz.
Any ideas on what may be occurring that’s keeping my Pig process from completing? The Hive query tutorial worked fine even on the larger data set.
Thanks in advance for any feedback or ideas.
