Configuring Storm View


This view has been marked deprecated.


Storm View requires that the cluster is managed by Ambari; the view utilizes the Ambari Server API.

Prepare your Ambari Server for hosting views.

It is strongly recommended that you:

  • increase the amount of memory available to your Ambari Server

  • run a standalone Ambari Server to host the views

To create a Storm View instance:


  1. Browse to the Ambari Admin interface: from the dashboard, open the administrator account menu and click Manage Ambari:

  2. Click Views, expand the Storm_Monitoring menu, and click Create Instance:

  3. On the Create Instance page, select the Version. If multiple Storm View versions are present, choose one.

  4. Enter the following view instance details:

    Table 2.3. Storm View Instance Details



    Example Value

    Instance Name

    This is the Storm view instance name. This value should be unique for all Storm view instances you create. This value cannot contain spaces, and it is a required setting.


    Display Name

    This is the name of the view link displayed to the user in Ambari Web.



    This is the description of the view displayed to the user in Ambari Web.


  5. Enter the following view instance settings:

    Table 2.4. Storm View Instance Settings



    Example Value

    Storm HostnameThis is the hostname where the Storm UI Server is running.storm-host-node1.com
    Storm PortThis is the port where the Storm UI Server is listening.8744

    Settings depend on cluster and deployment factors in your environment. You can typically leave the default settings unless you are using Storm View with a Kerberos-enabled cluster.

  6. Click Save.
