Using cluster names in the
kudu command line tool
When using the kudu command line tool, it can be difficult to remember the precise list of Kudu master RPC addresses needed to communicate with a cluster, especially when managing multiple clusters. As an alternative, you can use the command line tool to identify clusters by name.
- Create a new directory to store the Kudu configuration file.
Export the path to this newly created directory in the
Create a file called
kudurcin the new directory.
kudurcas follows, substituting your own cluster names and RPC addresses:
clusters_info: cluster_name1: master_addresses: ip1:port1,ip2:port2,ip3:port3 cluster_name2: master_addresses: ip4:port4
When using the
kuducommand line tool, replace the list of Kudu master RPC addresses with the cluster name, prepended with the character
@. For example:
$ sudo -u kudu kudu cluster @cluster_name1
