These steps will enable DevOps and Data Management teams to…

  • Gain near real-time visibility into day-to-day operational data engineering processes.

  • Automate manual monitoring activities and suppress noise.

  • Build near real-time visualizations to monitor those processes and trends using Cloudera Manager (CM) API, NIFI Pipeline, and NiFi APIs.

  • Find hidden patterns in process issues to troubleshoot, diagnose, and quickly action failing, troublesome, and resource-intensive processes.

  • Mine for insights into Yarn, Cloudera Data Science Workbench (CDSW), AirFlow, and NIFI processor logs/database.

  • Improve platform optimization and control user behaviors.

  • Become more proactive with incident resolution.

We will provide you with a framework that runs locally on your cluster and is customizable by security-restricted telemetry tools that require data to be sent outside the cluster. The framework provides insights into the processes that trigger workloads on the Cloudera Private Cloud Base platform, including:


KPI Monitoring Framework 

Scheduling / ETL Tool

Workloads Triggered

API / Data Source Used

Airflow Jobs Monitor 

Airflow - Python, SPARK

Yarn jobs status

Python script - Airflow database

CDSW Jobs Monitor
