Chapter 13. Using the Storm View

Storm provides a real-time, scalable, and distributed solution for data streamed from real-time sources such as machine sensors, supporting data ingestion, processing, and real-time response. Typical use cases include automated systems that respond to sensor data by notifying support staff, or an application that places a proximity-based advertisement on a consumer's smart phone.

This chapter explains:


Before creating the Storm view instance, 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.
