Hue Hue is a general purpose web interface built for the Hadoop ecosystem. Use Hue if you want to easily run and schedule Pig and Hive jobs. Navigate to to http://hue.analytics.wikimedia.org/. You'll need a Hue login account. Otto should have created one for you and given you a password if you also asked him for a shell account earlier. (This will soon be hooked into LDAP, and you will be able to use your usual WMF password). http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Analytics/Kraken/Access#Hue

The Hadoop Distributed File System ( HDFS ) is a distributed file system designed to run on commodity hardware. http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/hdfs/current/hdfs_design.html
