This node connects to a Hadoop Distributed File System using HDFS, WebHDFS or HTTPFS. The resulting output port allows downstream nodes to access the files of the remote file system, e.g. to read or write, or to perform other file system operations (browse/list files, copy, move, ...).
Path syntax: Paths for HDFS are specified with a UNIX-like syntax, /myfolder/myfile. An absolute for HDFS consists of:
- A leading slash ("/").
- Followed by the path to the file ("myfolder/myfile" in the above example).
SSL: This node uses the JVM SSL settings.
