Perform Data Lineage on Big Data Sources

Perform Data Lineage on Big Data Sources

Perform data lineage analysis in Enterprise Information Catalog for big data sources and targets.
Use Live Data Map to create a Cloudera Navigator resource to extract metadata for big data sources and targets and perform data lineage analysis on the metadata. Cloudera Navigator is a data management tool for the Hadoop platform that enables users to track data access for entities and manage metadata about the entities in a Hadoop cluster.
You can create one Cloudera Navigator resource for each Hadoop cluster that is managed by Cloudera Manager. Live Data Map extracts metadata about entities from the cluster based on the entity type.
Live Data Map extracts metadata for the following entity types:
  • HDFS files and directories
  • Hive tables, query templates, and executions
  • Oozie job templates and executions
  • Pig tables, scripts, and script executions
  • YARN job templates and executions
Live Data Map does not extract metadata for MapReduce job templates or executions.

Live Data Map Administrator Guide
