Hi there, 

I am writing a book on Android performance and tools used to measure performance, and I'd like the opportunity to look at the Intel performance tools., however, The MDK process fails - since Dell does not offer the Venue 8 on its website.


Can you please assist?

    JAVA 多线程实现生产者 —— 消费者

    最近在学习Java多线程编程,当然少不了学习经典的 生产者——消费者 模型。









    单机部署 hadoop2.2 + hbase0.96



    1.   安装jdk,并设置好JAVA_HOME。

    2.   设置主机名hostname,在/etc/sysconfig/network中设置。如:hostname=Master

    3.   设置IP地址与主机名称的映射关系,在/etc/hosts中设置。如: Master

    4.   创建专门的用户,比如我们创建hadoop用户。先创建组:groupadd hadoop,然后创建用户:useradd -g hadoop hadoop,然后修改hadoop用户的密码:passwd hadoop。


    1、解压缩,tar xzvf  hadoop-2.2.0.tar.gz

    2、修改配置文件hadoop-env.sh设置正确的java_home,如 export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk1.6
