Hadoop search: Dynamic search dashboards with Solr

Published on 02 June 2014 in - 2 minutes read - Last modified on 06 March 2021

Hue 3.6 and a team retreat in Curacao bring the second version of the previous Search App to some higher standards. The user experience has been greatly improved as now the app provides a very easy way to build custom dashboards and visualizations.

Here is a video demoing how to interactively explore some real Apache Log data coming from the live Hue of demo.gethue.com. In just a few clicks, we look for pages with errors, what are the most used Hue apps, the top Web Browsers or inspect the user traffic on a gradient colored World map:

Update!

New widgets are available in Hue 3.7: https://gethue.com/search-app-enhancements-explore-even-more-data/

The main features are:

  • Dynamic interface updating in live
  • Drag & Drop dashboard builder
  • Text, Timeline, Pie, Line, Bar, Map, Filters, Grid and HTML widgets
  • Solr Index creation wizard from a file

 

Build your own dynamic dashboard

 

More is on the roadmap, like integration with other Hue apps like Hive/HBase, export/import of results to Hadoop, more data types to plot. A following tutorial presents how to index the Apache Log into Solr and start doing your own analytics. In the meantime, feel free to give the search dashboards a try with Hue 3.6  or the upcoming C5.1 package!

As usual, we welcome any feedback on @gethue or hue-user!
