Hi@akhtar,

You can use appendToFile in your Hadoop file system command. This command appends the contents of all the given local files to the provided destination file on the HDFS filesystem. The destination file will be created if it is not existing earlier. You can see the below command.

$ hadoop fs -appendToFile derby.log data.tsv /in/appendfile
