Integrating Hadoop and Prom6

I can accross a research paper on the integration of prom and hadoop to process huge files instead of a static log.

I ve looked in the plugins but found none about this integration
can any body explain the process ? Are the plugins implemented in hadoop again ? or there is a connection between the 2 technologies and how it is done.
I ve read a paper but didnt get it 


  • Dear Muna,

    The research paper you refer to, i.e.,, which also has a more academic "sister paper", which is sadly lesser known, i.e.,, is quite a few years old, and, based on a rather old version of Hadoop.

    The core idea of the implementation, is simply establishing a connection to a pre-defined Hadoop cluster, and, running a pre-implemented algorithm (alpha miner / heuristics miner) on an event log that is stored on the cluster.

    As the paper primarily served as a proof-of-concept, and, in research is not really useful, the corresponding ProM package has been disabled.

    However, the source code is still accessible through

    Hope this helps.

  • okay thank you , I f I ve understood. The plugin reimplements anpha miner and heuristic miner and runs the analysis on hadoop while the visalization is donee via prom ? am I right
  • Dear Menu,

    As far as I know, you're right, except for the fact that the inductive miner is also supported.

    Kind regards,
