Spinning off of
ACCUMULO-123, the premise here is the ability to have a monitor page that is interactive. This originally came to me with the ability for a user to authenticate themselves with it and then make system/table level configuration changes via the monitor instead of having them go through the shell. Essentially, make use of the monitor to provide a GUI for real-time configuration changes. Initial steps should be for displaying current configuration information and then steps could be made to provide user level access. This may go so far as providing a web interfaced Accumulo shell. But for now this is a bit of a toy idea.
