Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-196) Add command and control features to the Monitor
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2012 14:35:23 GMT


Billie Rinaldi commented on ACCUMULO-196:

Here are some instructions for enabling shell access in the monitor page.

Generate keystore and truststore:
keytool -genkey -alias <serverAlias> -keyalg RSA -keypass <keyPass> -storepass
<storePass> -keystore keystore.jks
keytool -export -alias <serverAlias> -storepass <storePass> -file server.cer -keystore
keytool -import -v -trustcacerts -alias <serverAlias> -file server.cer -keystore cacerts.jks
-keypass <keyPass> -storepass <storePass>
Enter "yes" when prompted "Trust this certificate?"

Set the following properties in accumulo-site.xml:
monitor.ssl.keyStore - /path/to/keystore.jks
monitor.ssl.keyStorePassword - keyPass
monitor.ssl.trustStore - /path/to/cacerts.jks
monitor.ssl.trustStorePassword - storePass

(Re)Start the monitor and there will be a link for the shell.  You can use it in mock mode,
or log in as an Accumulo user.

> Spinning off of ACCUMULO-123, the premise here is the ability to have a monitor page
that is interactive. This originally came to me with the ability for a user to authenticate
themselves with it and then make system/table level configuration changes via the monitor
instead of having them go through the shell. Essentially, make use of the monitor to provide
a GUI for real-time configuration changes. Initial steps should be for displaying current
configuration information and then steps could be made to provide user level access. This
may go so far as providing a web interfaced Accumulo shell. But for now this is a bit of a
toy idea.
