You can use https://github.com/u39kun/ambari-grafana

It has just been updated to segregate by server.

hi Rahul

this is helpful. i got grafana up but i notice the dashboard metric queries are again based on

aggregated values when i select region server as a component. screen-shot-2015-12-30-at-101503-am.png

is there a way to see per host/region server the metric ?

you can also go to HBase UI and look at each regionserver individually. You don't need a graphical tool to identify hot-spotting.

Hi Artem,

agree we don't need ui per se for this. Hot spotting was just 1 use case.

At an aggregated level, its useful to see if something is abnormal. next step is to find out which region server/ host has abnormal behaviour.

if the option to build the widget is not available, you can always file a jira @vishnu rao

Re: how to see metrics per region server

@vishnu rao alternatively, you can try building your own widget in Ambari, I'll be honest I didn't try it but as far as I know you can build widget per host or aggregated.

@vishnu rao this solution is not scalable, if you have 100 RS servers, you'll need 100 widgets, no? Please accept the best answer to close.
