Examples

Displaying the configured value of a specific parameter

[user@hostname ~]$ hadoop conf | grep mapreduce.map.memory.mb
<property><name>mapreduce.map.memory.mb</name><value>1024</value><source>mapred-site.xml</source></property>

The above command returns 1024 as the configured value of the mapreduce.map.memory.mb parameter.

Dumping a node's configuration to a text file

[user@hostname ~]$ hadoop conf | grep ... >nodeconfiguration.txt  

The above command creates a text file named nodeconfiguration.txt that contains the node's configuration information.

The following information displays when you use the tail utility to examine the last few lines of the file:

[user@hostname ~]$ tail nodeconfiguration.txt
