The Drill Web Console is one of several client interfaces you can use to access Drill.
Drill 1.1 and Earlier
In Drill 1.1 and earlier, to open the Drill Web Console, launch a web browser, and go to the following URL:
http://<IP address or host name>:8047
where IP address is the host name or IP address of one of the installed Drillbits in a distributed system or localhost in an embedded system.
Drill 1.2 and Later
In Drill 1.2 and later, to open the Drill Web Console, launch a web browser, and go to one of the following URLs depending on the configuration of HTTPS support:
- http://<IP address or host name>:8047
Use this URL when HTTPS support is disabled (the default).
- https://<IP address or host name>:8047
Use this URL when HTTPS support is enabled.
You need to enable HTTPS support as described in Configuring Start-Up options to use Web Console security. By default, HTTPS support is disabled. You also need to enable user authentication. If user authentication is not enabled, all the Web Console controls appear to users as well as administrators:
If user authentication is enabled, Drill prompts you for a user name/password:
If an administrator logs in, all the Web Console controls appear: Query, Profiles, Storage, Metrics, Threads, and Options. The Profiles page for administrators contains the profiles of all queries executed on a cluster. Only administrators can see and use the Storage tab to view, update, or add a new storage plugin configuration. Only administrators can see and use the Threads tab, which provides information about threads running in Drill.
If a user, who is not an administrator, logs in, the Web Console controls are limited to Query, Metrics, and Profiles. The Profiles tab for a non-administrator user contains the profiles of all queries the user issued either through ODBC, JDBC, or the Web Console.
