A Quick Walkthrough of Kinetica

You should now have KAgent and Kinetica up and running. In this tutorial, we’ll take you on a quick walkthrough of the database’s main components.

There are four main components that help manage or interact with Kinetica.

  • KAgent – Cluster Management and Maintenance KAgent can setup new Kinetica clusters and manage and scale existing clusters.
  • GAdmin – Database Administration GAdmin is the web-based database administration tool for Kinetica. It has all the features of an enterprise-grade database management system, including tiered storage configuration, resource management, and data management.
  • Reveal – BI and Analytics Dashboard Reveal is a BI dashboard for querying and charting data in a usable and interactive way.
  • AAW – Advanced Analytics Workbench AAW is Kinetica’s packaged machine learning and analytics platform. From AAW, you can manage your entire machine learning workflow.

KAgent – Cluster Management and Maintenance

KAgent is the main cluster management tool for Kinetica. From KAgent, you can create new clusters, scale your existing clusters, review cluster details, update the security configuration, create a backup or setup a schedule, manage Docker registries for Kubernetes and AAW, and start, stop, or restart any Kinetica service.

  • Administration login information: admin & the administration password you set in Download and Install Kinetica

GAdmin – Database Administration

GAdmin is the administrative interface of the Kinetica database. It is a single stop for the configuration, security, logging, and monitoring of your Kinetica database. GAdmin also provides the means for data ingestion, querying via SQL and REST APIs, executing user-defined functions (similar to stored procedures), and monitoring long-running jobs.

Reveal – BI and Analytics Dashboard

Bundled with Kinetica is Reveal, a web-based BI visualization framework for querying and charting of data in an easy, interactive way. Reveal has a rich set of tools for making dashboards with charts, diagrams, and map visualizations. Multiple users can access these, and dashboards can be shared with others.

AAW – Advanced Analytics Workbench

AAW simplifies and accelerates data science and machine learning workflows in a scalable fashion. With AAW, users can create and manage batch or continuous ingests; create and manage TensorFlow featuresets and datasets; create, manage, and deploy RAPIDS and black box models and analytic functions; make inferences on models; and even audit models.
