Server Log Data

Fortify security and compliance with Apache Hadoop

Security breaches happen. And when they do, your server logs may be your best line of defense. Hadoop takes server-log analysis to the next level by speeding and improving security forensics and providing a low cost platform to show compliance.

In this video, we demonstrate how an enterprise security breach analysis and response might be performed.

In this demo, learn how to:

  • Stream server logs into Hadoop with Flume
  • Use HCatalog to build a relational view of the data
  • Use Pig to query and refine the data
  • Use Elastic Search for high-level visualization
  • Import the data into Microsoft Excel with the ODBC connector
  • Visualize data with Powerview
  • Use Oozie to automatically update a firewall
