Subject RE: How to run a mahout clustering job through a web service
Date Sun, 13 May 2012 06:14:53 GMT

I found this toolkit

I think it allows monitoring mostly. I wanted some kind of a framework which will allow submitting
jobs, tracking jobs and browsing tasks. Please let me know if there is any such framework.

Meantime, I am exploring Hue to see whether it fits my needs.

The recommender servlet in the examples ran (is it still there?) an
online recommender, not the Hadoop recommender.

"Mahout as a web service" is not a Mahout problem. You want a toolkit
for scheduling and monitoring Hadoop jobs on clusters. There are a few
of these. Once you have this, you can run Mahout on the cluster.
