Subject [jira] [Commented] (GEODE-80) DataBrowser source
Date Wed, 21 Oct 2015 13:53:27 GMT


Robert Pappas commented on GEODE-80:

There are a few features that we require for a data browsing tool:

# The ability to get an object by key.   Right now, Pulse can only execute OQL, and there's
no way (that I know of?) to get an entry by key using OQL that doesn't cause a full-region-scan,
unless you index the key, but indexes are pretty expensive.  Our most common use case for
developers is to lookup a Customer by a key, so Pulse is pretty much useless to us without
that ability.
# The ability to integrate with GemFire security.  We used to give out the Pulse passwords
to lots of people so that they could check on the cluster status.  But since the Query tool
was added to Pulse, now we've had to restrict Pulse access to a very few, because Pulse will
let them query customer data, which is a privacy concern for us.   We are using GemFire's
security hooks to protect our regions by username and password, and we need a query tool that
can support that mechanism.   Or at the very least we need a web-based query tool that we
can protect some other way that is separate from the monitoring tool.
# We would like the output to be in JSON format and be exportable.

Given these requirements, a stand-alone data browsing tool would actually be of use to us
if it supported these requirements.   OR Pulse could be modified to address our security concerns
and need for a key-based get ability with JSON output.
