Setting Node Topology with a Script

For large clusters, you can specify complex topologies in a text file or by using a script. Each line in the text file or script output specifies a single node and the full topology path for that node in the following format:
<ip or hostname> <topology>

The text file or script must be specified and available on the local filesystem on all CLDB nodes:

  • To set topology with a text file, set in /opt/mapr/conf/cldb.conf to the text file name
  • To set topology with a script, set in /opt/mapr/conf/cldb.conf to the script file name

If you specify a script and a text file, the MapR system uses the topology specified by the script.
