Re: Front end visualization tool with Hive (when using as a warehouse)
Not sure if this would fall in the line of discussion but thought of mentioning it anyways.

A lot of people who run Hive as a warehouse, would load up their aggregations and results in traditional RDBMS database (using something like Sqoop) and then use one of the visualization tools to visualize those aggregations without having to wait for Hive-like timings.

I agree with Bejoy’s assessment – Hive is good for processing large volumes of data in a batch manner. But for real-time or any complex SQL based analysis you would typically want to have some type of a RDBMS in the mix along with Hadoop/Hive. In terms of what’s missing in Hive today - On the query side Hive doesn’t yet support all flavors of subqueries (correlated subqueries to be specific. There are potential workarounds for the non-correlated ones), it also doesn’t support inserting data from a stream i.e, INSERT INTO TABLE VALUES (…) type syntax, Hive’s query optimizer is mostly rule-based at this time although there’s push to move towards a cost-based one. On the administration side there’s no workload management/job prioritization scheme like a typical RDBMS, Hive Server isn’t thread-safe and also doesn’t yet have any kind of security/authentication scheme.

Hi Sreenath

First of all don't take hive like a RDBMS system, while designing your solution. It is an awesome tool when it comes to processing of huge volumes of data in non real time mode. If any of your use cases comes with 'updates' on rows, it is not supported in hive. It is pretty expensive to have a work around for updates as well. (you can implement it on overwriting a per partition level in the most granular manner, still it is expensive)

By the way I'm not a DWH guy, may be others can add on their experience over these.

Hi Bejoy

I am not looking for just an UI for queries (even though at first, when working on twitter data, that was of my interest). But, now I am planning on using Hive as a warehouse with a front end in-memory processing engine. Microstrategy or tableau would be a good choice.

Now further refining the problem, I would ask what is the warehousing power of Hive when compared to a traditional warehouse. Can Hive perform all operations performed/required in a warehouse. If not, where are the short comings which I need to deal with.

Always thankful for your apt assistance.

If you are looking at a UI for queries then Cloudera's hue is the best choice. Also you do have odbc connectors that integrates BI tools like microstrategy, tableau etc with hive.

Subject: Front end visualization tool with Hive (when using as a warehouse)
Hi all

I am new to hive and am working on analysis of twitter data with Hive and Hadoop in a 27node cluster.
At present am using Microsoft powerpivot as the visualization tool for visual representation of analysis done using Hive and have got some really good results and I am stunned by the scalability power of the Hadoop system.

As a next step, I would like to evaluate the warehousing capabilities of Hive for business data.
Any insights into this is welcome. And am facing problem of delegating job to Hive/Powerpivot as Powerpivot itself has capabilities of being a warehouse tool. Any other good visualization tools for usage with Hive is also welcome.

For analyzing twitter data, I just ran complex Hive queries for each of analysis done. But for a warehouse, this does not sound like a good solution.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
