I have Cygnus instance configured. I'm publishing information through Orion Context Broker, but now I want to check if everything is working properly.

How could I ensure that everything is fine?

Any help will be much appreciated.

You will have to use WebHDFS in order to browse your HDFS user space. Detailed referece for WebHDFS can be found at https://hadoop.apache.org/docs/curren....

For instance, by using my HDFS user "frb" I can do:

$ curl -X GET "http://cosmos.lab.fiware.org:14000/webhdfs/v1/user/frb?op=liststatus&user.name=frb" -H "X-Auth-Token: <MY_TOKEN>" | python -m json.tool { "FileStatuses": { "FileStatus": [ { "accessTime": 0, "blockSize": 0, "group": "frb", "length": 0, "modificationTime": 1455191589436, "owner": "frb", "pathSuffix": "-p", "permission": "755", "replication": 0, "type": "DIRECTORY" }, { "accessTime": 0, "blockSize": 0, "group": "frb", "length": 0, "modificationTime": 1456152801883, "owner": "frb", "pathSuffix": "FRB", "permission": "740", "replication": 0, "type": "DIRECTORY" },...

Cygnus stores the data as:


You can check the Cygnus logs as well in order to know if the data has been successfully persisted. Try finding logs like:

HDFS file (myservice/myservicepath/entityId_entityType/entityId_entityType.txt), Data ({"recvTime":"2016-03-29T07:55:24.441Z","fiwareServicePath":"myservicepath","entityId":"xxx","entityType":"xxx", "xxx":"111", "xxx_md":[]})
