Subject 答复: REST API for Hive queries?
Date Thu, 13 Dec 2012 08:27:43 GMT
I agree with Manish Malhotra
You should put an eye on the access speed if you want display the data on an UI application
Push the result data to RDBS may be the best choice.

主题: Re: REST API for Hive queries?

Ideally, push the aggregated data to some RDBMS like MySQL and have REST API or some API to
enable ui to build report or query out of it.

If the use case is ad-hoc query then once that qry is submitted, and result is generated in
batch mode, the REST API can be provided to get the results from HDFS directly.
For this can use WebHDFS or build own which can internally using FileSystem API.

Hive takes a longer time to respond to queries as the data gets larger.

Best way to handle this is you process the data on hive and store in some rdbms like mysql
On top of that then you can write your own API or use pentaho like interface where they can
write the queries or see predefined reports.

Alternatively, pentaho does have hive connection as well. There are other platforms such as
talend, datameer etc. You can have a look at them

We are using Hive as our data warehouse to run various queries on large amounts of data. There
are some users who would like to get access to the output of these queries and display the
data on an existing UI application. What is the best way to give them the output of these
queries? Should we write REST APIs that the Front end can call to get the data? How can this
be done?
 I'd like to know what have other people done to meet this requirement ?
Any pointers would be very helpful.
