hadoop fs -put command?

Big Data Hadoop

I had a file in my local system and want to copy it to HDFS. can i use the copy command or Put command? How ?



You will need to first create a directory in the HDFS by using the below command:

hdfs dfs -mkdir <path>

Once done, you can use the below command to copy the data from the local files to HDFS:

 hdfs dfs -put /root/Hadoop/sample.txt /"your_hdfs_dir_path"

You can also use another command alternatively that is represented below:

hdfs dfs -copyFromLocal /root/Hadoop/sample.txt /"your_hdfs_dir_path”
