The Apache Ambari project is aimed at making Hadoop management simpler by developing software for provisioning, managing, and monitoring Apache Hadoop clusters. Ambari provides an intuitive, easy-to-use Hadoop management web UI backed by its RESTful APIs.
Ambari enables System Administrators to:
Provision a Hadoop Cluster
Ambari provides a step-by-step wizard for installing Hadoop services across any number of hosts.
Ambari handles configuration of Hadoop services for the cluster.
Manage a Hadoop Cluster
Ambari provides central management for starting, stopping, and reconfiguring Hadoop services across the entire cluster.
Monitor a Hadoop Cluster
Ambari provides a dashboard for monitoring health and status of the Hadoop cluster.
