Hadoop is a popular software framework that enables distributed manipulation of large amounts of data, thus making it a perfect companion to cloud computing. In fact, Hadoop MapReduce, the programming model and software framework used to write applications to rapidly process vast amounts of data in parallel on large clusters of compute nodes, is already in play on cloud systems. This article shows you how to take full advantage of Hadoop by introducing Hadoop configurable parameters and using them to monitor, analyze, and tune the performance of your Hadoop cluster.
