In the new version of Cloudera Navigator we can see Cluster Instances and Cluster groups instead of just Clusters.
Please help me with understanding the purpose of this.
1. Does it means I can use single Cloudera Navigator installation for tracking more than one cluster? How can I add on emore cluster to my existing Cloudera navigator then?
2. Is it possible for cluster to belong to more than one group?
Thanks for reaching out to the Cloudera community.
Can you clarify where you're seeing this info in Navigator? If you could share a screenshot of what you're seeing, that would also be helpful.
We are using the following version where we see Cluster Instance and Cluster Group
Cloudera Manager version : Cloudera Enterprise 5.13.0 (CDH 5.13.0, Parcels)
Cloudera Navigator Version: Cloudera Navigator 2.12.0
Yes, we know Cloudera manager can manage multiple clusters, the question is regarding Cloudera Navigator: does Cloudera Navigator has multiple cluster support as well?
Thank you for the information.
"...does Cloudera Navigator has multiple cluster support as well?"
Yes. the following is from our "Cloudera Navigator Frequently Asked Questions" documentation:
"...It provides a unified view of clusters associated with a given Cloudera Manager instance and lets you customize metadata, trace lineage, view audit events, and so on."
So Cluster Instance stands for single cluster which is tracked by Cloudera Navigator. Is my understanding correct?
And what is Cluster Group in this case?
Navigator can track multiple Cluster within the same Cloudera Manager instance.
The "Cluster Group" is new feature that was developed to support Altus clusters.
