In this tutorial, you'll learn how to export data out of Hadoop to boost throughput using the DataDirect SQL Server JDBC driver and Apache Sqoop.
We've gotten everyone connected to SQL Server using Progress DataDirect's exclusive support for both NTLM and Kerberos authentication from Linux with Sqoop. Now, we plan to blow your minds with high flying bulk insert performance into SQL Server using Sqoop's Generic JDBC Connector. Linux clients will get similar throughput to the Microsoft BCP tool.
So far, Cloudera and HortonWorks have been pointing shops to the high performance DataDirect SQL Server JDBC driver to help load data volumes anywhere from 10GB to 1TB into SQL Server Data Marts and
Warehouses. It's common for the DataDirect SQL Server JDBC driver to speed up load times by 15-20X; and Sqoop will see similar improvement since it leverages JDBC batches that we transparently convert into SQL Server's native bulk load protocol. Moving data out of Hadoop and into external JDBC sources are exciting projects that represent the democratization of big data for downstream application consumers. You're definitely doing something right if you are ready to read on!
SELECT name, recovery_model_desc
WHERE name = ‘database_name’ ;
Note the recovery_model_desc returned by this query (expect to return,’BULK_LOGGED’).
sqoop export --connect 'jdbc:datadirect:sqlserver://nc-sqlserver:1433;database=test;user=test01;password=test01;EnableBulkLoad=true;BulkLoadBatchSize=1024;BulkLoadOptions=0' --driver com.ddtek.jdbc.sqlserver.SQLServerDriver --table 'blah_1024MB' --export-dir /user/hdfs/blah_1024MB/ --input-lines-terminated-by "n" --input-fields-terminated-by ',' --batch -m 10
INSERT INTO films (code, title, did, date_prod, kind) VALUES
('B6717', 'Tampopo', 110, '1985-02-10', 'Comedy'),
('HG120', 'The Dinner Game', 140, DEFAULT, 'Comedy');

Special thanks to Mike Spinak, Principal Software Engineer and Danh Huynh, Systems Administrator with their help with setup and testing in the 6 node Cloudera CDH5.2.0-1.cdh5.2.0.p0.36 cluster to export data into SQL Server 2008 R2.
Results are still coming in from several shops and the best to date is a load of 40 GB into SQL Server within 10 minutes. In the above system, we were loading 37 GB in 18.5 minutes. There are several properties across Hadoop, Sqoop, JDBC driver and SQL Server you can tune to improve performance even further.
