You connect to a Pivotal GemFire distributed system with the
Pivotal GemFire DataBrowser utility, and use it to query data interactively
with OQL ad-hoc queries.
Use DataBrowser to perform the following tasks:
- Execute ad-hoc queries on
any data region on any cache node in the distributed system. The DataBrowser
displays the results in a tabular format that allows you to drill to down into
complex nested objects.
- Configure the maximum number
of rows returned by any query to avoid excessive resource use on the server.
- Simultaneously execute
multiple continuous queries on one or more cache servers in the distributed
system. The DataBrowser continuously updates the results in a tabular window.
- Provide security credentials
when connecting to a distributed system through a plug-in mechanism.
