This should be renamed.

Yes, download tomcat and extract to opt, and you should copy hicc.war to
apache-tomcat/webapps, then copy descriptors, views from
chukwa/opt/apache-tomcat/webapps/hicc to
Chukwa/var directory.

I will ask Corinne to include this in the documentation.

jdbc.conf supports multiple databases with this syntax:


If the data processor node contains multi-line jdbc.onf, it will run
aggregation and down samples on the defined databases.
