Apache Bigtop

Bigtop is an Apache Foundation project for Infrastructure Engineers and Data Scientists looking for comprehensive packaging, testing, and configuration of the leading open source big data components. Bigtop supports a wide range of components/projects, including, but not limited to, Hadoop, HBase and Spark.


Packaging Smoke testing Virtualization
Bigtop packages Hadoop RPMs and DEBs, so that you can manage and maintain your Hadoop cluster. Bigtop provides an integrated smoke testing framework, alongside a suite of over 50 test files. Bigtop provides vagrant recipes, raw images, and (work-in-progress) docker recipes for deploying Hadoop from zero.

Bigtop support many Operating Systems, including Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, Fedora, openSUSE and many others.

Bigtop includes tools and a framework for testing at various levels (packaging, platform, runtime, etc.) for both initial deployments as well as upgrade scenarios for the entire data platform, not just the individual components.



Download latest release of Bigtop

Bigtop-1.0.0

All required tools will be installed by ./gradlew toolchain

However place supply a suitable JRE (for instance openjdk7) first

Continuous Integration

Apache Bigtop uses Jenkins for continuous integration testing (you can learn more about Jenkins here ). There are 2 Jenkins servers currently running for the project:

The Apache Jenkins server runs the "Bigtop-trunk" job whenever code is committed to the trunk branch, which in turn runs several test jobs.

In each branch there is a job to build each component, a job to run package tests and a job to build package repositories.
