Using a Storm Client

Updated at: Sep 02, 2021 GMT+08:00


This section describes how to use the Storm client in an O&M scenario or service scenario.


  • The client has been installed. For example, the installation directory is /opt/hadoopclient.
  • Service component users are created by the administrator as required. In security mode, machine-machine users need to download the keytab file. A human-machine user must change the password upon the first login. (Not involved in normal mode)


  1. Prepare the client based on service requirements. Log in to the node where the client is installed.

    Log in to the node where the client is installed. For details, see Installing a Client.

  2. Run the following command to go to the client installation directory:

    cd /opt/hadoopclient

  3. Run the following command to configure environment variables:

    source bigdata_env

  4. If multiple Storm instances are installed, run the following command to load the environment variables of a specific instance when running the Storm command to submit the topology. Otherwise, skip this step. The following command uses the instance Storm-2 as an example.

    source Storm-2/component_env

  5. Run the following command to perform user authentication (skip this step in normal mode):

    kinit Component service user

  6. Run the following command to perform operations on the client:

    For example, run the following command:
