    mysql> ALTER USER ‘root’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘jangkrik‘;
    mysql> flush privileges;
    mysql> quit;
  6. Check if the root password is set correctly

    # mysqladmin shutdown -p
  8. Start MySQL daemon normally
    # service mysql start

# 20160929 - by sphinxid -
# Example of multithreaded selenium webdriver with phantomjs in Python.
# In this example, it will use 10 thread + 10 phantomjs to do 25000 request to "url".

from selenium import webdriver
import time
import concurrent.futures
import signal
from concurrent.futures import ThreadPoolExecutor
from random import randint

def fetch(url, driver):
 if not driver.current_url:

 print 1
 print 2

 return 0

def clean_up(driver):


if __name__ == "__main__":
 num_thread = 10
 num_request = 25000
 url = ""

 # instantiate threadpool
 pool = ThreadPoolExecutor(num_thread)
 parr = []

 # instantiate PhantomJS per THread
 for x in range(0, num_thread):
 print "Initialized thread %s " % x
 print " OK."

 start_time = time.time()

 # Use one random thread from thread pool to access the URL
 for x in range(0, num_request-1):
 n = randint(0, (num_thread-1))
 future = pool.submit(fetch, url, parr[n])

 # clean_up: make sure phantomjs process is closed
 for x in range(0, num_thread):
 future = pool.submit(clean_up, parr[x])

How to Convert Compressed Text: bzip2 to gzip without Temporary Files Multithreaded

Posted on Updated on

The tools that you will need is: lbzip2, pigz and split.

lbzip2 =>
pigz =>

If you are using Ubuntu (I’m using 14.04 LTS).
You can easily install lbzip2 and pigz by using apt-get (aptitude).

$ apt-get install lbzip2 pigz

Or you could download the source code from their website and compile manually.

Let say you have 500gb of text compressed bzip2 files called file01.txt.bz2 and you want to split that file to a multiple gziped files with 1500000 lines each, so it will be able to be processed faster in your hadoop cluster.

$ lbzcat file01.txt.bz2 | split -d -a 10 -l1500000 --filter='pigz > newfile01-$FILE.gz'
