I want to try out Hive, Spark and Drill on MapR 5.2 Sandbox. My PC has 8 GB of RAM and enough disk space, but only has 2 physical cores. Can i still run the sandbox on the PC?
Venkateswara Rao Anampudi I will not agree with you on this, I recommend, don't run MapR sandbox with all you 8GB RAM, leave some RAM for your laptop resident OS and need some cache memory to swap. If you run MapR sandbox with 7GB RAM (out of 8GB), it will run successfully. No issues.
As per Philipp Köhnken PC resources, i would not recommend to allocate 7GB to sandbox, which leaves appox. 800 MB to the host OS. Which is not good, in fact your host OS will be under heavy load, it may lead to shutdown PC.
My suggestion is keep at least 40% of resources to the host OS and remaining resources you can allocate to Guest OS (SandBox).
Correct me if i'm wrong.
According to the Official MapR documentation sandbox required At least 20 GB free hard disk space, at least 4 physical cores, and 8GB of RAM is available. Performance increases with more RAM and free hard disk space.
With your PC configurations, yes you can run sandbox, but it may very slow and some service may not start
I´ve read that before, but i wasn´t sure if MapR won´t let me install the sandbox at all or if it only would run slow.
I will try it out. Thank you!
Just wanted to bring you another test case- I tested MapR sandbox (without Drill component) with 6GB RAM (I have 16GB RAM) and 1 Physical core (I have dual cores) on VMWare , MapR sandbox is running and doing its job without any issues.
Even I can successfully able to connect with putty.
Note : Be aware that, without recommended RAM, if you try to run all services @ CLI, Sandbox may crash (sometimes). I did this test case for Cloudera distribution sandbox sometime back.

Forgot to mention in my previous thread, may be helpful to you. Once your MapR sandbox up, you check if all necessary processes running or not using command "$ jps". This command should bring you like below processes:
21296 Jps2136515039 RunJar21062 MapRCliCommands2163 WardenMain19401 JobHistoryServer21269 FsShell1463 QuorumPeerMain15611 HistoryServer12515 CommandServer19504 NodeManager13154 ResourceManager3270 Bootstrap15016 RunJar18371 Bootstrap21291 CLIMainDriver21020 CLIMainDriver4306 CLDB14742 ThriftServer
It means all JVM processes running on your sandbox.
Thanks to both of you, i will try it out!
Hi Krishna Chaitanya,
Not mandatory you can agree on my idea but I tested on 2 different config laptops and couldn't find any issues with Sandbox. Thanks
Gentleman, Venkateswara Rao Anampudi & Krishna Chaitanya - let us all agree to disagree :-). Hope to see more fruitful engagements from the both of you.
Sure, I'll share my experience towards this in future if I find any further. Thanks both you for sharing the info.
