New SQL Editor
Hue’s new code editor is a single-page app that is much simpler to use than the previous editor.
Released with CDH 5.8, Impala 2.6 brings solid performance improvements, particularly for clusters secured by Kerberos running BI workloads on Apache Hadoop.
Just a few months back, we showed you how Impala 2.5 delivered a 4x performance boost compared to Impala 2.3 for BI workloads on Hadoop via the introduction of several features like runtime filters. Here’s an update: Compared to two releases ago, Impala 2.6 delivers 12x better performance on secure workloads and continues this drumbeat of consistent performance improvement.
This new release includes, among other things, support for “slicing and dicing” workloads by user/application/report, workload breakdown by similar queries, and alerts for Apache Hive and Apache Impala (incubating) best practices.
Cloudera Navigator Optimizer enables database architects and database administrators (DBAs) to gain in-depth understanding of their SQL workloads running in data warehouse environments or on Apache Hadoop. Navigator Optimizer makes planning offload projects more predictable by assessing risk and reducing development costs.
The recently-released Apache Hive 2.0 contains some exciting improvements, many of which are already available in CDH 5.x.
Recently, the Apache Hive community announced Hive 2.0.0. This is a larger release compared to the previous one (covered here), with a lengthy list of new features (many experimental), enhancements, and bug fixes. Cloudera’s Hive team have been working with the community for months to drive toward this significant release.
