You can try RecordService beta in multiple ways. First, download the server via the virtual machine (VM) or by downloading the RecordServiceClient parcel or package.
RecordService beta must be installed only on a test cluster, because it is beta software.
The RecordService beta VM provides a single-node Hadoop cluster, including Impala, MapReduce/YARN, Spark, Sentry, and RecordService. Using the VM is the easiest way to see RecordService in action, and it does not require that you use an existing Hadoop cluster.
You can install and run RecordService on your own cluster built on CDH 5.4 or later.
While you should not need to change default settings, there are several properties you can modify to customize your RecordService instance.
