Is there a tool like phpMyAdmin for RDBMS-MySQL for a Cassandra DB?

I know that there is less "runtime" config possible (column families can not be edited at runtime etc.). Nevertheless, it would be very helpful to have a GUI to inspect the different column families, browse data, and so forth.

Sounds like my Cassandra Cluster Admin is exactly what you want! Take a look at it here:

Although this does not answer your question directly, may I suggest you read these pros and cons regarding Cassandra db as they can be very enlightening as far as why your search may be coming up empty.

CouchDB has a very nice GUI front end called "Futon" that may be an answer if you're looking for GUI inspection of data on a NoSQL source.

Thank you for your advice! I chose Cassandra because of the absense of a single-point-of-failure which is very important in my use case... – strauberry Jun 20 '11 at 16:39
