Subject [jira] Commented: (CHUKWA-306) Standalone (non-daemon) Chukwa operation
Date Thu, 18 Jun 2009 17:26:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CHUKWA-306?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12721354#action_12721354

Jiaqi Tan commented on CHUKWA-306:
----------------------------------

Right, the backfilling tool is definitely part of the solution. The second part is how we
can generate the visualizations without requiring the user to separately setup and configure
Tomcat or any other web server, nor to setup and configure a separate database server.

> This is an articulation of a possible alternative use of Chukwa as a standalone log analysis
pipeline. This would enable users to read in existing logs from files, process (Demux) and
perform analysis (e.g. current SALSA/Mochi toolchain) on them, and visualize them, without
requiring the user to setup or run any daemons, nor database servers. 
> This can be presented as an alternative interface to Chukwa for the user, where the main
architectural parts (Chunks, post-Demux SequenceFiles of ChukwaRecords, post-Demux-processing
SequenceFiles of ChukwaRecords, and finally time-aggregated database entries for fast visualization)
remain unchanged, and Chukwa is manifest as a set of files in HDFS. The main value that Chukwa
then provides to users is 1. centralized one-stop-shop for log processing+analysis+anomaly
detection, 2. the ability to use MapReduce to process logs, regardless of whether they had
used Chukwa to collect the logs. 
> That way, the ability to process logs and analyze/do diagnosis is not tied to having
to run the entire Chukwa daemon infrastructure, since many users who use Hadoop clusters may
not have superuser access to those machines, e.g. users at universities using shared clusters.
