Subject [Hadoop Wiki] Update of "Hive/HiveWebInterface" by EdwardCapriolo
Date Tue, 03 Mar 2009 23:56:21 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

The following page has been changed by EdwardCapriolo:

New page:
= Hive Web Interface =

== What is the Hive Web Interface ==
The Hive Web Interface is a an alternative to using the Hive command line interface. 

== Features ==

=== Schema Browsing ===
An alternative to running 'show tables' or 'show extended tables' from the CLI is to use the
web based schema browser. The Hive MetaData is presented in a hierarchical manner allowing
you to start at the database level and click to get information about tables including the
SerDe, column names, and column types.

=== Detached query execution ===
A power user issuing multiple hive queries simultaneously would have multiple CLI windows
open. The hive web interface manages the session on the web server, not from inside the CLI
window. This allows a user to start multiple queries and return to the web interface later
to check the status.

=== No local installation ===
Any user with a web browser can work with Hive. This has the usual web interface benefits,
in particular remote users have less firewall/connectivity issues.

== Administration == 
/bin/hive --service hwi
