RE: HWI use on AWS/EMR
Hi Ariel,

Thanks for the speedy reply. We'll be accessing the HWI from Windows rather Linux desktops, so can you help me out with understanding how to carry out the port forwarding from a Windows environment? Currently I use WinSCP to initiate a connection to the EMR instance, then spawn a PuTTY session.

The changes to the hive config look identical to what I've changed in my hive-default.xml. Does it make any difference which config file the changesare applied to (hive-default.xml vs hive-site.xml)?

Hey Tony,

I would recommend using ssh port forwarding instead of making your hwi publicly available on the internet. When you connect to the master node using ssh you should use a command like the following:

ssh -i /path/to/keyfile.pem -L 9999:localhost:9999 -l hadoop MASTER_HOSTNAME

After you have connected, add the following to your hive/conf/hive-site.xml file:

  <description>This is the WAR file with the jsp content for Hive Web Interface</description>

Run this command to start up hwi:

hive --service hwi

And finally point your browser to:


That worked for me.

Oops, I overlooked that you have the public domain name in your message. Can you surf to  http://ec2-54-247-61-206.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com ?  If not, does HWI use port 80? Is whatever port it uses blocked by EC2?

If it's blocked you can use ssh to tunnel the port through.

That's the internal hostname, not visible outside. Use the name like ec2-NNN-NN-NN-NNN.compute-1.amazonaws.com<http://ec2-NNN-NN-NN-NNN.compute-1.amazonaws.com>. It's shown in the EMR console and the elastic-mapreduce script you might have used to launch the cluster.

If that doesn't work, verify that port 80 is not blocked by default. That's certainly true for ports 9XXX used by the JobTracker, etc.

I'm trying to get HWI running and accessible from an Amazon Web Services EMR instance. I've hit a blocker early on though, and the documentation is less than illuminating. Can you share any experiences you have had? Specifically, here's what I'm curious about.

- Running on AWS. I've created a Hive job flow on AWS, edited hive-default.xml (in /home/hadoop/.versions/hive-0.8.1/conf) and changed the hive.hwi.war.file to lib/hive-hwi-0.8.1.war.
- HWI starts up fine, but when I try to connect with http://ip-XX-AAA-BBB-CCC.eu-west-1.compute.internal:9999/hwi, I get a timeout message, in Firefox it's "The connection has timed out - The server at ec2-54-247-61-206.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com<http://ec2-54-247-61-206.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com> is taking too long to respond".

Has anyone successfully connected to HWI running on an AWS EMR instance? From the same browser I can connect to HWI on a local Ubuntu box.
