In the previous tutorial, we learned how to set up a Qbox Cluster with the ES-Hadoop connector to interface with Hadoop’s data warehouse component, Hive, to perform SQL queries on top of Elasticsearch. The benefits of offloading and manipulating ES indices with Hive enable a multitude of possibilities for high-performing, deeper analysis across large data sets.

In this tutorial we will take it a step further, by using Logstash to import an existing data set in the form of a CSV file into Elasticsearch in order to perform later batch-analytics in Hadoop’s powerful ecosystem.
