Hi@akhtar,

You can use getmerge command in Hadoop. This is the most important and the most useful command on the HDFS filesystem when trying to read the contents of a MapReduce job or PIG job’s output files. This is used for merging a list of files in a directory on the HDFS filesystem into a single local file on the local filesystem. You can see the syntax below.

$ hadoop fs -getmerge /user/data
