ManageEngine Expands Big Data Monitoring to Hadoop
SAN JOSE & PLEASANTON, Calif., March 29 — ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the availability of performance monitoring for new big data platforms, such as Hadoop and Oracle Coherence, in Applications Manager, its application performance monitoring solution. The move enables IT operations teams in enterprises to gain operational intelligence into big data platforms such as Hadoop and Oracle Coherence as well as the business-critical applications relying on these platforms.
ManageEngine is demonstrating the latest capabilities of Applications Manager in Booth 1042 at Strata+Hadoop World 2016, being held March 29-31, 2016, at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, Calif.
Organizations continue to identify and hone big data use cases. In turn, data storage and processing platforms such as Hadoop and Oracle Coherence are gaining acceptance among many organizations. The growing variety, complexity and scale of applications running on those big data platforms underscore IT teams’ need for better visibility into data processing performance to overcome the related management challenges. Enterprises also need to understand the ROI from their big data investments to turn the promise of big data into reality.
“Monitoring big data systems goes beyond the traditional APM approach and requires a deeper understanding of the entire SaaS stack,” said Dev Anand, director of product management at ManageEngine. “Backed by our experience with Zoho’s online services, we were able to tune Applications Manager to provide insight at the application, database and file levels.”
Proactive Monitoring and Troubleshooting for Hadoop and Oracle Coherence Clusters
Hadoop is an open source framework for distributed storing and processing of big data on large clusters of commodity hardware. Applications Manager enables comprehensive performance monitoring of Hadoop clusters to minimize downtime and performance degradation as well as take corrective action proactively before any problems arise. The key performance indicators of Hadoop monitored by Applications Manager include those pertaining to the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), TaskTrackers/NodeManagers, jobs/applications, files and directories, and blocks.
Oracle Coherence is an in-memory grid and distributed caching solution that enables enterprises to scale mission-critical applications. Applications Manager’s monitoring support for Oracle Coherence provides deep insights into the health and performance of Coherence clusters and facilitates rapid troubleshooting of issues. The key performance metrics of Oracle Coherence monitored by Applications Manager include those related to clusters, partition assignment, distributed and replicated services, Extend Connection, Extend Services, and distributed and replicated node memory details.
Among its many benefits, Hadoop and Oracle Coherence monitoring in Applications Manager helps IT personnel:
- Gain a 360-degree view into the performance of Hadoop and Oracle Coherence clusters, the applications that rely on them, and the associated infrastructure components.
- Get proactive alerts on a wide array of error conditions and faults. Diagnose and repair performance issues faster and keep critical applications up and running.
- Monitor resource utilization to ensure critical workloads do not run out of resources. Make informed decisions on capacity planning to handle the increasing size and complexity of applications.
- Assess the value delivered by big data processes to the enterprise.
The support for Hadoop and Oracle Coherence is complementary to the existing out-of-the-box support for 80+ applications and infrastructure components, including other big data/NoSQL technologies such as Cassandra, MongoDB, Redis, Memcached and Couchbase.
