Hi,

I would like to understand one basic thing regarding setting up Hadoop Infra. As we know it can be run on commodity hardware. So my question is can people in the cluster can simultaneously use the hardware while I run a hadoop job on the same hardware.

thanks

You should be able to do so. But, this would lead to performance issues. Especially so, if you are using the storage in other process as well.

thanks Kunal. Also, I wanted to know if I am setting up Hadoop and Mongo DB infra, in this, when ever I submit a job, my Hadoop will pass on the queries to mongodb hardware or will it distribute data from Mongodb to my nodes in cluster. Kindly throw some light or any flow chart that you have to share on this.

thanks in advance.
