Can Ambari monitor the existing apache hadoop cluster ?

Can Ambari monitor the existing apache hadoop cluster ?

New Contributor

I have researched many open source monitoring tools(ganglia,ELK stack,zabbix etc) to monitor existing Bigdata component cluster. I got some success with Ganglia and ELK for hadoop metrics only. I have to monitor other components also like hive,kafka,hbase,spark. I have used Ambari before also but that time i have installed all the components through ambari only.

This time i already have all the bigdata components installed/configured and i want to provision,manage and perform admin tasks through ambari GUI.

Is this possible with Ambari to monitor existing bigdata components ?

@Tajinderpal Singh

You need to perform the so-called Takeover by Ambari, check this for your options.

Can Takeover by Ambari work for cluster consisting of plain apache bigdata components also or for HDP only ?

@Tajinderpal Singh

Takeover by Apache Ambari should work find non HDP installation as well.

please see the sample scripts that i found from some git repo. (I did not test it though)
