Verifying that HCP Deployed Successfully

After you install HCP, you can verify that your installation was a success by checking the various tools you installed.

  1. Check Ambari to verify that all of the services are active by entering $AMBARI_HOST:8080 in a web browser, to display Ambari.

    The Ambari dashboard should look similar to the following:

    Figure 4.5. Ambari Metron Dashboard

  2. Verify that the topologies bundled with HCP are deployed.

    From Ambari, navigate to Storm > Quick Links > Storm UI.

    You should see the following topologies listed :

    • Bro

    • Snort

    • YAF

    • Enrichment

    • Indexing

  3. Check that the enrichment topology has emitted some data.

    This could take a few minutes to show up in the Storm UI. The Storm enrichment topology UI should look something like the following:

  4. Ensure that the HCP user interface is available and receiving data by displaying the HCP UI at $METRON_UI_HOST:5000.

    Check to verify that the indexing is done correctly and the data is visualized.
