Run pig script though Oozie

Category : Bigdata

If you have a requirement where you have to read some file through pig and you want to schedule your pig script via Oozie then this article will help you to do your job.

Step 1: First create some dir inside hdfs(under your home dir) would be good.

$ hadoop fs -mkdir -p /user/<user_id>/oozie-scripts/PigTest

Step 2: Create your workflow.xml and

$ vi












$ vi workflow.xml


<!–workflow.xml                              –>


<workflow-app name=”WorkFlowForPigAction” xmlns=”uri:oozie:workflow:0.1″>

<start to=”pigAction”/>

<action name=”pigAction”>





                <delete path=”${nameNode}/${examplesRootDir}/PigTest/temp”/>














        <ok to=”end”/>

        <error to=”end”/>


<end name=”end”/>


Step 3: Create your pig script :

$ cat pig_script_file.pig

lines = LOAD ‘/user/demouser/file.txt’ AS (line:chararray);

words = FOREACH lines GENERATE FLATTEN(TOKENIZE(line)) as word;

grouped = GROUP words BY word;

wordcount = FOREACH grouped GENERATE group, COUNT(words);

store wordcount into ‘/user/demouser/pigOut1’;

— DUMP wordcount;

Step 4: Now copy your workflow.xml and pig script to your hdfs location:

$ hadoop fs -put pig_script_file.pig /user/demouser/oozie-scripts/PigTest/

$ hadoop fs -put workflow.xml /user/demouser/oozie-scripts/PigTest/

Step 5: Now you can schedule or submit oozie job

$ oozie job -oozie http://<Oozie_server>:11000/oozie -config -run

Now you can see your output in hdfs :

[demouser@<nameNode_server> pig_oozie_demo]$ hadoop fs -ls /user/demouser/pigOut1

Found 2 items

-rw-r–r–   demouser hdfs          0 2016-05-03 05:36 /user/demouser/pigOut1/_SUCCESS

-rw-r–r–   demouser hdfs         30 2016-05-03 05:36 /user/demouser/pigOut1/part-r-00000

[demouser@<nameNode_server> pig_oozie_demo]$ hadoop fs -cat /user/demouser/pigOut1/part-r-00000
