Chapter 10. Using the Files View

The Files View provides a convenient way to access HDFS through a web-based interface. This document provides information on how to configure a view instance and your cluster for browsing HDFS via the Files View.


It is critical that you prepare your Ambari Server for hosting views. It is strongly recommended you increase the amount of memory available to your Ambari Server, and that you run additional “standalone” Ambari Servers to host the views. See Preparing Ambari Server for Views and Running Ambari Server Standalone for more information.
