Perform data lineage analysis in Enterprise Information Catalog for big data sources and targets.
Use Enterprise Information Catalog 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. Enterprise Information Catalog extracts metadata about entities from the cluster based on the entity type.
Enterprise Information Catalog 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
Enterprise Information Catalog does not extract metadata for MapReduce job templates or executions.
