Table Paths

Tables are stored in the MapR file system. When providing the path to a table in the Java API, maprcli commands, or mapr dbshell, use these conventions.

  • For a path on the local cluster, start the path at the volume mount point. For example, for a table named test under a volume with a mount point at /volume1, specify the following path: /volume1/test
  • For a path on a remote cluster, you must also specify the cluster name in the path. For example, for a table named customer in volume1 in the sanfrancisco cluster, specify the following path: /mapr/sanfrancisco/volume1/customer
