Hannibal is very useful, but samar is right. It's another thing to install
and maintain. I'd hope that over time the need for tools like hannibal
would be lessened as some of the features make its way into the main
install. Hannibal does its work through crawling log files, whereas some
(or all) of the data it provides could be provided through the HBase api,
and thus admin ui, in a less hacky way.
If someone were willing to invest the time in adding such a metric to the
hbase admin ui (and HBaseAdmin API please) it would bring us one step
