    I have installed HDP on EC2 using ambari ,and already upload one csv file into hdfs. Now my question is how can I move that csv file to hbase.
    Is there any GUI tool for that ? I am new to hadoop please help.

    No, there is no GUI for this.
    You have to use HBase data loading functionality for this, or write your own MapReduce program for doing this.
    Check in HBase book how to perform such operations.

    Thank you!

    take a look on this doc:
    It is regarding data loading, it describes number of the ways to perform this.

    What do you mean by “analyse data which is in Hbase”?
    Please clarify.

    Thank you!
