Hadoop Monitoring Tool

Hadoop monitoring

Distributed storage and distributed processing of large data sets have always been a challenge for IT admins. This increasing need to store and process large data sets efficiently led to the development of the Hadoop framework. With its massive storage capacity and enormous processing power, Hadoop allows users to manage ever increasing data sets and perform tasks easily. However, it is important to ensure the smooth functioning of the Hadoop framework.

With Applications Manager's Hadoop monitoring, it's easy to get operational insight about your distributed storage environment, connect to Hadoop clusters via REST API or JMX, maintain optimal health of distributed Hadoop clusters, and ensure that your clusters are available and processing tasks quickly and accurately.

Monitor your Hadoop system with ease

Track the overall health of Hadoop clusters

Applications Manager's Hadoop monitoring tool enables you to:

  • Monitor the availability and health of your Hadoop system.
  • Understand and monitor HDFS (Hadoop distributed file system) stats - DFS capacity, used space, free space, and non-DFS used space.
  • Track file and directory growth and prevent any possible problems due to abnormal growth in the number of files.
  • Track the status of blocks (missing, corrupt etc.) to ensure data is being stored optimally across the Hadoop DFS.

Monitor the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS)

Our Hadoop monitoring dashboard has a wide range of functionalities to make performance tracking thorough and easy to comprehend. Some of the key highlights with Applications Manager's HDFS monitoring include:

  • Understand the capacity and usage trends of HDFS by tracking the status of NameNode JVM and OS.
  • Receive notifications when the thresholds are breached.
  • Monitor the status of individual DataNodes and get instant notifications when they go down.
  • Track the HDFS memory, and be notified in case of memory shortage.

Understand the performance of TaskTrackers or NodeManagers

With Applications Manager's Hadoop Cluster Monitoring solution, you can:

  • Track the status (alive, dead, graylisted, etc.) of TaskTrackers and slots in Hadoop version 1.x from the Hadoop MapReduce.
  • View the queue status to determine whether tasks are running perfectly or the queue is stuck.
  • For version 2.x, track the performance of the NodeManager from the Hadoop Yarn.
  • Learn the node counts in different states such as active, decommissioned, unhealthy, and lost.

Track your jobs and applications easily

Hadoop monitoring tools like ManageEngine Applications Manager ensures that you are constantly aware of the number of jobs or applications running at any given time. It also allows you to sort all the jobs or applications by their states for easy performance analysis. Monitor Hadoop to receive notifications on the number of jobs or applications that have failed, so you can take any necessary corrective actions when required.

Reporting and dashboards.

Keep powerful information at your fingertips. With Applications Manager's Hadoop performance monitoring software, visualize your Hadoop cluster's resource usage and performance with prebuilt reports and dashboards that show real-time and historical data.

Track user profiles to enhance user productivity

In virtual environments, tracking user profiles is critical to ensure users get a consistent experience every time they log in. Avoid problems like profile bloat (creation of multiple users which adds to more storage) and slow logon speed by monitoring the profile loading, script execution and system processing timings.
