DB Connect and livy thrift server- What are the benefits and how would I configure?


Dear community, I am using DB connect with Hive/Spark.

I would like to know the benefits of using Livy Thrift server over Hive/Spark with DB connect.
And if it is possible and it makes sense, what would be the best way to configure DB connect to the Livy Thrift Server?

Thanks a lot

Livy is basically a restapi service to access Spark. DB Connect does not support restapi -- you will have to configure a custom app to access your Livy endpoint via restapi. DB Connect via JDBC to Spark is probably faster, more efficient and flexible.

Thanks a lot John for your prompt answer. For now I am using the connector Cloudera Hive 2. In terms of performance, I can get better?
