Subject Re: Compressed sequence files and "hadoop fs -text <sequencefile>"
Date Mon, 13 Feb 2012 22:07:22 GMT

Thanks, that was why the native libs were not being loaded -- my cluster is Linux, but I was
submitting the command from a Mac.

Is there any way to force Hadoop to use the java Codec classes, to avoid this native-library

Thanks so much for your help!!!

 I am curious as to why can't Hadoop load it?  The native library isn't necessary for my purposes
-- I don't need native-level decompression performance, I'm just trying to manually spot-check
my data.  I'm just curious about this.

But I'm pretty sure there are no nulls in my data, because I can turn off compression (comment
out the last three lines above), run "hadoop fs -text <sequencefile>", and see the data
I expect.  Is there some other way I can verify that my data is not the cause of the problem?
