Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1045) Create a suite of shell commands or common features
Date Tue, 07 May 2013 01:13:15 GMT


Corey J. Nolet commented on ACCUMULO-1045:

The thrift proxy makes it easier to interact with Accumulo with languages other than Java-
however, the proxy server is a process that user would need to start manually. I'm seeing
much value in having a pre-baked set of command line tools (even the same commands from the
shell) that I can run on command at any point without having to run the shell at all. I'd
like to be able to do simple things like dump some scanned rows out to a table, pipe them
into a pattern matcher and further into a delete command. In the shell, this requires too
many steps currently.

> Create a suite of command-line utilities (probably based on the shell's existing commands,
or a subset of them), rather than be restricted to the limitations of the shell to issue these
> This adds benefit by being able to more simply pipe to external utilities, like awk,
grep, sed, etc. It also has the potential to eliminate restrictions when scanning for binary
data, standardize command line arguments better (especially by removing the shell "current-table"
context), and leverage settings/profiles stored in some file (like $HOME/.accumulo/config).
