Aster Database

Included in the SQL-MR Examples tutorial is a project named Aster Tutorials - SQL-MR Examples, which contains more than 60 analyses. Some of these SQL-MR analyses contain Run Unit scripts that call ACT. Those analyses must be updated to supply login credentials and point to the path on the user system where ACT is installed, as shown in the following figure:

Run Unit Properties

The Install Aster Example Data analysis can use ACT to install the Aster SQL-MR example data (if it is not already installed on your system) in order for the tutorials to function properly. See the Aster Analytics Foundation User Guide for details on each SQL-MR analysis.

The SQL-MR Examples tutorial will take a few minutes longer to load than the other tutorials.
