You’re constantly looking at different tools to understand your clusters and you don’t have an accurate picture. With Platform Spotlight, you get a 360° cluster view, Pepperdata continuously collects data about your big data clusters, hosts, queues, users, applications and all relevant resources – unique data that enables you to quickly diagnose performance issues up to 90% faster while making resource decisions based on user priorities and needs.

A single source of operational and performance truth

Access all relevant real-time and historical information about the cluster including system demand, abusive users, and wasteful applications, as well as queue and container sizes. Drill down or zoom out to analyze any application to understand its performance in the context of the entire multi-tenant cluster.

Complete instrumentation of your big data ecosystem

Monitor any process including Kafka, Impala, HBase, Hive, MapReduce, Tez, Spark, IBM BigSQL, LLAP and more.

Quantify the impact applications have on the cluster

Identify the impact applications have on cluster-wide resources such as CPU, disk, memory, network, NameNode and HDFS.

Quantify the impact the cluster has on applications

Identify which application slowdowns were caused by disk, network or node failures/congestion.

Attribute accurate costs to users and business units

Pepperdata provides you with detailed utilization of every resource, which when combined with your cost model, generates the most accurate reports of which users and business units are the most costly.

 

Key Performance Indicators

  • Reduced mean time to problem resolution.
  • Improved productivity for developers and operations staff.
  • Accurate understanding of the most expensive users.

Pepperdata Shines a Light Into Healthcare Cluster

Philips Wellcentive fixed the root cause of a critical performance issue within days of installing Platform Spotlight. The cluster achieved a significant increase in cluster performance throughput. Jobs completed on time and SLAs were met. The technical team returned to focusing on core initiatives, streamlining operations, and meeting revenue targets.

Before Pepperdata, we experimented with various approaches to solve our performance issues, but we couldn’t see deep enough into the cluster. Pepperdata shined a bright light into our Hadoop environment and provided the detailed data that helped us isolate and resolve the problem.- Software Architect at Philips Wellcentive
At Rubicon Project, having the appropriate visibility and insight into our Big Data applications is extremely important when delivering detailed reports to our clients and meeting our SLA. We challenged Pepperdata to find a solution to profile our applications before going to production that would help us maintain our customer SLA as we introduce new applications. Pepperdata listened to us and quickly understood the problem we were trying to address.- Senior Systems Engineer at Rubicon Project
The level of support and expertise that we receive from the Pepperdata team made a big difference to us. Pepperdata worked closely with us on our implementation to ensure success. With Pepperdata Capacity Optimizer, the DevOps team runs more jobs, faster. We’ve seen a big performance boost across the cluster and have a much more efficient data footprint. Using the Pepperdata dashboard to see application-level metrics, unique custom views, resource utilization per workload drilldowns, and hardware utilization by various workgroups has significantly improved the way that we manage and troubleshoot.- Senior Manager of EDW Operations Engineering at Expedia
