Cloudera Manager needs a service descriptor for each service to monitor. Although the extension interface is open (see the documentation and extension tools) I’m not aware of such a connector for R-studio.
Please note though, that R-studio beeing a desktop application, it’s resource usage is probably not relevant in a cluster environment. If you’re using R-studio with sparklyr to submit jobs to a cluster, then your jobs will be executed by spark. You can consult our documentation on how to monitor spark applications.

There is a way to deploy R Server 9.1 on a Cloudera cluster using parcels and run it as a service from Cloudera Manager. I have tested recently and the following guide from Microsoft explains the required steps:
I have recently performend an installation or R Server and R Studio on Cloudera Manager & CDH 5.13, following the guides. The instructions are quite good, there are some gotchas though:
1) You can download the parcel from the sources listed under
If you just want to test the setup the easiest way is to download R Studio from Visual Studio Dev Essentials. Just make sure you download the correct file for Hadoop (not for Linux):
Microsoft R Server 9.1.0 for Hadoop (x64) - (English)
No additional details are available for this file.
File name: en_microsoft_r_server_910_for_hadoop_x64_10323951.tar.gz
2) You can unpack the files and run the generate_mrs_parcel.sh script to generate the parcel, parchel SHA and the CSD file:
MRS-9.1.0-[..].parcel (file name depends on select OS version)
3) You may also want to download Microsoft R Open for Microsoft R Server. Fortunately, R Open is also available as a Cloudera parcel: https://mran.revolutionanalytics.com/download/mro-for-mrs/
Select the following:
R Open for Microsoft R Server – Hadoop Cloudera Manager Parcel
The archive contains both a parcel and parcel sha file. Both should go under /opt/cloudera/parcel-repo/ as well
I was installing on CentOS 6.8 and I ran into an issue where the file names for the generated parcel were not correct (MRO-3.3.2-_dist_.parcel). If you have something like this, make sure to rename the parcel and parcel sha files according to your RHEL/CentOS version:
Preferably do this in the folder where the files were generated and only move to /opt/cloudera/parcel-repo/ AFTER you have renamed them. (Otherwise Cloudera Manager may not find the new parcels and an additional restart of the cloudera-scm-server service on the CM host may be needed.)
If you have done everything correctly, clicking Check for New Parcels in Cloudera Manager (top right corner -> Parcels page) will refresh the list of available parcels for MRO and MRS should show up. If they do not show, check the exact filename (should represent the OS version), their location (/opt/cloudera/parcel-repo/), owner (cloudera-scm:cloudera-scm) and permissions (644). You may also need to restart the cloudera-scm-server service.
Installing R Studio Server
As mentioned earlier, there is no parcel available for R Studio Server, this needs to be managed manually.
There is a short guide on how to get it up and running on Cloudera
I also needed some additional steps, which are very well documented in a Microsoft blog post:
