      Description

      It would simplify things a lot for people running ufw on Ubuntu (the standard firewall package) if there were application profiles for the various things so that people don't have to look up ports and so on (and it makes firewall management much easier).

      This is really simple, for Hue, it would be a file named /etc/ufw/applications.d/hue with this content:

      [Hue]
      title=Hue for Hadoop
      description=Hue for Hadoop provides a web-based user interface to your Hadoop cluster.
      ports=8088/tcp

      Then, it can be enabled for the world as ufw allow hue and it would show up in ufw status:

      1. ufw status
        Status: active

      To Action From
      – ------ ----
      OpenSSH ALLOW Anywhere
      Apache ALLOW Anywhere
      Postfix ALLOW Anywhere
      Hue ALLOW Anywhere

        Along these lines, I found a complete lack of a ports reference that covered more than a small subset of the services in Bigtop, so I create one: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/BIGTOP/Network+Ports+Reference. I haven't verified everything but most of it comes from other reliable docs (so please correct / add as needed), but it would make a good reference if / when we decide to go further.

        Sean, would you like to take a stab at formalizing these as app profiles like Peter suggested?
