Elastic Map Reduce (EMR)


gAgent installation on EMR allows seamless integration with plug-and-play support, and leverages the EMR bootsrap actions from either the AWS console or the AWS CLI.

Installation Instructions

  1. 1.
    From the Amazon EMR Console: You can choose to specify a bootstrap action while creating a cluster. When creating a cluster, choose Advanced Options and then navigate to General Cluster Settings. Under Bootstrap Action, select Configure and Add under Advanced Options.
  2. 2.
    From the AWS CLI: You can pass references to bootstrap action scripts in AWS EMR by adding the --bootstrap-actions parameter when creating the cluster using the create-cluster command. It will look like this:
--bootstrap-actions Path="s3://mybucket/filename",Args=[arg1,arg2]
To install gAgent on your EMR cluster you need the following arguments:
  • Client ID: A unique customer license key that is required for the agent's authentication.
  • Service ID: A customer-defined service identifier used to correlate all the agents that are installed in the same customer service.
  • EMR Cluster Name: The name of the EMR cluster you would like to install the gAgent on.
  • Download Bucket: The name of the S3 bucket containing the bootstrap scripts.
