Question on Hadoop webservers

New Contributor

We are trying to figure out if Hadoop uses a webserver behind the scenes for various components such as Ambari, Zeppelin etc since these are web based UIs. I know we have to do a one-time install of an Apache web server for the installation process but that webserver doesn’t seem to be used after that point. If Hadoop is using its own webserver, could you please check if it’s some sort of flavor Apache.

Most of the those components use embedded Jetty Server, including Ambari, Zeppelin, Ranger & etc., due to the remarkably small footprint. Hope this helps.
