Apache Accumulo Examples

Build Status


The Accumulo-Examples repository contains a collection of examples for Accumulo versions 2.0 and greater. Examples within the main branch are designed to work with the version currently under development. Additional branches exist for previous releases of the Accumulo 2.x line. For example, the 2.0 branch contains examples specifically intended to work with that release version.

The Accumulo Tour also provides several simple introductory examples that may be of interest.

A collection of examples for Accumulo 1.10 can be found here.

Setup instructions

Follow the steps below to run the Accumulo examples:

  1. Clone this repository

     git clone
  2. Follow Accumulo's quickstart to install and run an Accumulo instance. Accumulo has an in conf/ that must be configured as the examples will use this file to connect to your instance.

  3. Review in to see if you need to customize it. If ACCUMULO_HOME & HADOOP_HOME are set in your shell, you may be able skip this step. Make sure ACCUMULO_CLIENT_PROPS is set to the location of your

     cp conf/ conf/
     vim conf/
  4. Build the examples repo and copy the examples jar to Accumulo's lib/ directory to get on its class path:

     cp target/accumulo-examples.jar /path/to/accumulo/lib/
  5. Each Accumulo example has its own documentation and instructions for running the example which are linked to below.

When running the examples, remember the tips below:

  • Examples are run using the runex or runmr commands which are located in the bin/ directory of this repo. The runex command is a simple script that use the examples shaded jar to run a a class. The runmr starts a MapReduce job in YARN.
  • Commands intended to be run in bash are prefixed by '$' and should be run from the root of this repository.
  • Several examples use the accumulo and accumulo-util commands which are expected to be on your PATH. These commands are found in the bin/ directory of your Accumulo installation.
  • Commands intended to be run in the Accumulo shell are prefixed by '>'.
