Launching an HBase Application Instance

Use the following command format to launch HBase:

su <user>
/usr/hdp/current/slider-client/bin/slider create <hb_cluster_name> --template appConfig.json --resources resources.json

Where <user> is the user who installed the HBase application package.

For example:

su <user>
/usr/hdp/current/slider-client/bin/slider create hb1 --template /usr/work/app-packages/hbase/appConfig.json --resources /usr/work/app-packages/hbase/resources.json

Cluster names may not include uppercase characters.

You can use the Slider CLI status command to verify the application launch:

/usr/hdp/current/slider-client/bin/slider status <application_name>

The specific information for the running application is accessible via the “ApplicationMaster” link that can be seen in the far right column of the row associated with the running application (probably the top row):
