Platform Alerting

You receive so many alerts that aren’t specific enough to isolate and resolve your big data cluster issues. Pepperdata exposes all of the appropriate granular data, allowing you to create alerts that quickly pinpoint root causes.

Identify who is blowing up the big data cluster

Use Pepperdata’s rich data to track any exhaustible resource, including CPU, memory, IO and more (network ports) to alert on rogue users.

Identify which Hadoop or Spark applications will miss their SLAs

Use Pepperdata’s data on activity such as duration, amount of data processed or other milestone to alert on rogue applications.

Identify resource contention

Use Pepperdata’s data to alert when problems arise from multiple users or applications contending for resources on the big data platform.

Identify underperforming or failing hardware

Use Pepperdata’s rich and robust platform and infrastructure data to identify network errors, disk latency and potential capacity shortages.

Key Performance Indicators

  • Improves mean time to root cause identification.
  • Improves platform uptime.

Pepperdata Shines a Light Into Big Data Healthcare Cluster

Philips Wellcentive fixed the root cause of a critical performance issue within days of installing Platform Spotlight. Their Hadoop cluster achieved a significant increase in cluster performance throughput. Jobs completed on time and SLAs were met. The technical team returned to focusing on their 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
