IMPORTING FROM Amazon Simple Storage Service.

This bridge establishes a connection with a choosed bucket in order to extract the physical metadata. It is critical that the parameters are filled correctly in order to satisfy the local connection requirements on the client workstation that runs the bridge. Please refer to the individual parameter's tool tips for more detailed examples.

Bridge Parameters

Parameter Name Description Type Values Default Scope
Access Key Your access key id to sign programmatic requests to AWS services. STRING      
Secret Key Your secret key to sign programmatic requests to AWS services. PASSWORD      
Region Specify region to browse buckets. Default is us-east-1 STRING      
Root directory Set directory containing metadata files or specify it using browsing tool. Bridge provides up to 3 level browsing depth. Don't forget to specify 'Region' parameter for using browsing tool.

Bridge uses only s3a protocol to load files.
f.e. s3a://bucket/dir1/dir2
Subdirectory filter Case sensitive filter of subdirectories expressed using the Java regular expression pattern syntax (e.g. '.*_xyz' - import subdirectories that end with _xyz).
You can define multiple conditions separated with spaces (e.g. 'x y' - import sub directories that called x or y). When a condition has spaces it must be quoted (e.g. 'x y' - import sub directories that called 'x y'). You can define an exclusion condition by putting the dash character in front of it (e.g. '-test' - skip all 'test' directories).
The Java regular expression documentation is available at:
File filter Similar to the directory filter parameter STRING      
Sample size Enter the directory containing metadata files or specify it using browsing tool. Bridge provides up to 3 level browsing depth. NUMERIC      
Partition directories Files-based partition directories' paths.
The bridge tries to detect partitions automatically. It can take a long time when partitions have a lot of files.
You can shortcut the detection process for a partition by specifying it in this parameter.
Specify the partition directory path relative to the Root directory.
Use . to specify the root directory as the partitioned directory.

Separate multiple paths with the space character.
For example: dir1/dir2 dir3/dir4 dir5
Miscellaneous Specify miscellaneous options identified with a -letter and value.

For example, -m 4G -f 100 -j -Dname=value -Xms1G

-m the maximum Java memory size whole number (e.g. -m 4G or -m 2500M ).
-s import system objects that are skipped by default (e.g. -s)
-v set environment variable(s) (e.g. -v var1=value -v var2="value with spaces").
-j the last option that is followed by Java command line options (e.g. -j -Dname=value -Xms1G).
-hadoop key1=val1;key2=val2 to manualy set hadoop configuration options
