Nagios and Ganglia Integation into Ambari

Explorer

Hi Team,

Need some help as I would like to know whether we can integrate Nagios and Ganglia into Ambari?

Or Ambari is quiet good enough to manage the Hadoop cluster?

Thanking in Advance..

From one of my old thread i am posting the content here: https://community.hortonworks.com/questions/118016/can-someone-share-the-video-link-or-website-link-...

It is better to use Ambari Metrics Collector for Hortonworks HDP monitoring. It also offers Grafana to visualize the statistics and metrics in more useful manner.


In Earlier version of Ambari used to include the plugin capability with Nagios and Ganglia however those were removed due to following limitations. https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-5707

- Ganglia has limited capabilities for analyzing historic data, new plugins are not easy to write.

- Horizontal scale out for large clusters.

- No support for adhoc queries.

- Not easy to add metrics support for new services added to the stack.

- It is non trivial to hook up existing time series databases like OpenTSDB to store raw data forever.




So recommended way is to use AMS (Ambari Metrics Collector Service). https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-2.5.1.0/bk_ambari-operations/content/ams_architectu...


Using Grafana: https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-2.5.1.0/bk_ambari-operations/content/using_grafana....

Nagios and Ganglia has been deprecated. It's not supported from HDP 2.3 and so no hortonworks support on these components ,AMS is a better solution
