Apache Hive

Apache Hive shines for ad-hoc analysis and plugging into BI tools. Its SQL-like syntax allows for ease of use not for only for engineers but also for data analysts. Through our experience, there are probably more desirable tools to use if you are planning on integrating Hive into your processing pipeline.

Kibana

It's well suited to creating dashboards for getting an overview of what is going on with an application.

Pros

Apache Hive

  • Hive syntax is almost like SQL, so for someone already familiar with SQL it takes almost no effort to pick up Hive.
  • To be able to run map reduce jobs using json parsing and generate dynamic partitions in parquet file format.
  • Simplifies your experience with Hadoop especially for non-technical/coding partners.

Kibana

  • searching
  • near real-time

Cons

Apache Hive

  • Use Hive for analytical work loads. Write once and read many scenarios. Do not prefer updates and deletes.
  • Behind scenes Hive creates map reduce jobs. Hive performance is slow compared to Apache Spark.
  • Map reduce writes the intermediate outputs to dial whereas Spark operates in in-memory and uses DAG.

Kibana

  • Some performance issues with large datasets.
  • Linking to dashboards makes extremely long urls.
  • Lack of reports.

Thanks to its high usability Apache Hive enables users to craft extensive queries really efficiently and at the same time to how to hold response times very low. HiveQL simplicity makes it super easy to manage large datasets, what was almost an impossible task before introduction of Apache Hive data warehousing platform in our company.

Hive also has a community platform of its own just like other Hadoop frameworks. Most of the queries/problems are resolved in the community itself. We can just post our problems or get in touch with a specific user and get the issue resolved. Otherwise there is always the product support team for any resolution.

We did not use the official Kibana support. Documentation was easy enough to follow.

Alternatives Considered

Apache Hive

Besides Hive, I have used Google BigQuery, which is costly but have very high computation speed.Amazon Redshift is the another product, I used in my recent organisation.Both Redshift and BigQuery are managed solution whereas Hive needs to be managed

Kibana is free; it was the first and only thing we've tried in this area.

Return on Investment

Apache Hive

  • It exposes the distributed calculation world (Hadoop) to the users but doesn't require the user to have the in-depth understanding of boilerplate details, it reduces the time of learning and let the data analyst can focus their efforts on the core business.

Kibana

  • reduces downtime
  • increases developer velocity
