Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-7239) Create a servlet for HDFS UI
Date Mon, 13 Oct 2014 21:07:36 GMT
Haohui Mai created HDFS-7239:

             Summary: Create a servlet for HDFS UI
                 Key: HDFS-7239
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7239
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Haohui Mai
            Assignee: Haohui Mai

Currently the HDFS UI gathers most of its information from JMX. There are a couple disadvantages:

* JMX is also used by management tools, thus Hadoop needs to maintain compatibility across
minor releases.
* JMX organizes information as <key, value> pairs. The organization does not fit well
with emerging use cases like startup progress report and nntop.

This jira proposes to introduce a new servlet in the NN for the purpose of serving information
to the UI.

It should be viewed as a part of the UI. There is *no* compatibility guarantees for the output
of the servlet.
