Use the Web UI to debug Impala Virtual Warehouses

You can use the Catalog Web UI, Coordinator Web UI, and the StateStore Web UI to debug Impala Virtual Warehouses in Cloudera Data Warehouse (CDW).

The Impala daemons (impalad, statestored, and catalogd) debug Web UIs, which can be used in CDP Runtime by using Cloudera Manager, is also available in the CDW service. In CDW service the following Web UIs are provided:

  • Impala Catalog Web UI This UI provides the same type of information as the Catalog Server Web UI in Cloudera Manager. It includes information about the objects managed by the Impala Virtual Warehouse. For more information about this debug Web UI, see Debug Web UI for Catalog Server in the Impala Runtime documentation set.
  • Impala Coordinator Web UI This UI provides the same type of information as the Impala Daemon Web UI in Cloudera Manager. It includes information about configuration settings, running and completed queries, and associated performance and resource usage for queries. For information about this debug Web UI, see Debug Web UI for Impala Daemon in the Impala Runtime documentation set.
  • Impala StateStore Web UI This UI provides the same type of information as the StateStore Web UI in Cloudera Manager. It includes information about memory usage, configuration settings, and ongoing health checks that are performed by the Impala statestored daemon. For information about this debug Web UI, see Debug Web UI for StateStore in the Impala Runtime documentation set.

Required role: EnvironmentAdmin

Make sure that you note your CDP workload user name and have set a password for it in the User Management module of Management Console. You need to use your workload user name and its associated password to log into the debug Web UIs. For more information, see Setting the workload password in the Management Console documentation set.

  1. In the CDW UI on the Overview page, locate the Impala Virtual Warehouse for which you want to view the debug UIs, and select Edit from the options menu on the tile. This launches the details page for this Virtual Warehouse.
  2. In the Virtual Warehouse details page, select the WEB UI tab on the right. The list of debug Web UIs displays as links.
  3. Click one of the Web UI links and you are prompted for your workload user name and password.
After you are authenticated, you can view the debug Web UI much the same as you can in Cloudera Manager and use the information to help you troubleshoot issues with your Impala Virtual Warehouse.
