Bigtop is a project for the development of packaging and tests of the Apache Hadoop ecosystem.
The primary goal of Bigtop is to build a community around the packaging and interoperability testing of Hadoop-related projects. This includes testing at various levels (packaging, platform, runtime, upgrade, etc...) developed by a community with a focus on the system as a whole, rather than individual projects. Packages have been built on Ubuntu 10.10, CentOS 5/6, Fedora 18, Mageia 1, openSUSE 12.2. They can probably be built on other platforms as well.
Bigtop packages Hadoop RPMs and DEBs, so that you can manage and maintain your Hadoop cluster.Bigtop provides an integrated smoke testing framework, alongside a suite of over 50 test files.Bigtop provides vagrant recipes, raw images, and (work-in-progress) docker recipes for deploying Hadoop from zero.
