Installing Cloudera Manager

Cloudera Manager can be installed using the following two methods:

  • Automatic installation
  • Manual installation

In this section, we will walk through the steps for automatic installation as most of the configurations are handled efficiently by Cloudera Manager itself.

For this demonstration, we will be using the following machine configuration for the Cloudera Manager Server:

  • Operating system: CentOS 6.4
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • CPU: 4 CPU cores
  • Disk space: 50 GB

For the machines running the Cloudera Manager Agents, we will use the following configuration:

  • Operating system: CentOS 6.4
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • CPU: 4 CPU cores
  • Disk space: This will depend on the volume of data you want to store in your cluster
