Create a Holistic Source of Application Performance Truth Across Your Big Data Clusters

You’re constantly looking at different tools to understand the performance of your applications to ensure SLAs, avoid failure, improve efficiency, and monitor resource capacity, and you still don’t have an accurate picture because you don’t have access to the right data. You submit queries and wait. You have no insight into when a query or app starts running, if there are delays, or whether it will finish. Developing fast and efficient applications requires an understanding of dozens of performance metrics and tuning parameters.

Pepperdata Application Spotlight enables granular views of all this data in one place to gauge performance in the context of the entire cluster, quickly diagnose application performance issues up to 90% faster, and improve overall efficiency.

This video explains how Pepperdata APM enables you to manage and achieve optimal hardware performance in your multi-tenant distributed computing environment.

Application Spotlight enables developers to quickly understand performance impacts and get recommendations on how to better optimize their jobs. In addition to helping make their jobs go faster, Application Spotlight enables developers to be better tenants in multi-tenant clusters by showing them how to write optimal performing jobs and more efficiently use their queue and cluster resources with practical, innovative application performance management solutions.

360° Application View

Application Spotlight allows you to create a holistic source of application performance truth across your clusters and achieve the following benefits:

  • Get self-service access to your application performance dataProfile and optimize application performance via recommendations and key performance indicators.

  • Gain complete instrumentation of your application – Understanding exactly what CPU and memory resources it requested, what it needs, what it used, and what it wasted.

  • Quantify the impact that the cluster has on your applications – Identify the impact that the queue congestion, bottlenecks, and hardware failures have on application performance.

Application Tuning

Application Spotlight Improves the performance and efficiency of your Hadoop and Spark applications in the following ways:

  • See the consolidated source of application performance data presented in the context of the big data cluster

  • AI-driven optimization of recurring applications

Pepperdata Application Spotlight provides tuning recommendations for applications and allows you to set up alerts on specific behaviors and outcomes.

Application Recommendations

Pepperdata Application Spotlight helps you to achieve optimal application performance through accurate recommendations:

  • Change configuration parameters to optimize performanceGet self-service recommendations on data partitioning and serialization.

  • Tune CPU and member reservations based on actual consumption – Get self-service recommendations on container sizes and heap reservations.

  • Change queue selection or launch time-based on cluster activity – Identify the best queue and launch time for applications based on current workloads to improve the runtime and maximize performance.

Alerting

Application Spotlight Enables you to create and receives alerts about events that interfere with application performance.

  • Identify cluster bottlenecks

  • Use Pepperdata’s rich real-time data to identify resource bottlenecks, including CPU, memory, and IO

  • Identify application bottlenecks

Set up alerts on specific behaviors and outcomes to avoid the risk of failure. Receive notifications on metrics of interest and events that interfere with application performance.

Benefits

Developers

  • Generate application-specific recommendations to improve application performance

  • Highlight applications that need attention

  • Automatically identify bottlenecks, and alert on duration, failure conditions, and resource usage

  • Search all applications running on the cluster, compare current and previous runs, and visualize Spark applications and its stages for easy root cause failure analysis and performance tuning.

Operators

  • Reduce the number of performance incidents in production

  • Easily communicate detailed performance issues back to developers

Enterprise Organizations

  • Improve communication of performance issues between Dev and Ops teams

  • Shorten time to production

  • Increase cluster ROI
