Compuware unveils APM to optimise Hadoop on AWS

By

Technology performance company Compuware has unveiled a new APM solution for Hadoop on Amazon Elastic MapReduce which it says allows organisations to "tame big data at scale, enabling customers to gain faster business value at lower cost.”

Already available in the AWS Marketplace, the new APM - powered by Compuware’s patented PurePath Technology - profiles Amazon EMR jobs, providing drill-down dashboards that can pinpoint the root cause of failed jobs or performance hotspots with a single click.

“Compuware APM combined with the AWS cloud provides customers with the technical capabilities they need to allow them to focus on their business,” said Terry Hanold, Vice President, Cloud Commerce, AWS.

“We’re excited to welcome Compuware into the AWS Marketplace, where customers will be able to now gain the advantage of Compuware APM for Amazon EMR.”  

Hanold said that by using the newly released APM, operation teams gain full visibility into cluster usage based on users or job types, enabling monitoring of service level agreements (SLAs) and charge-back models to consumers.

“By profiling Hadoop jobs in production, operations teams can quickly identify the issues, whether they are mis-configured or unbalanced clusters, poorly-coded workloads or unhealthy hosts. Developers, armed with exact detail shared by operations and QA, no longer have to guess at the performance of their code when running at massive scale.”

According to Steve Tack, Vice President of Product Management for Compuware’s APM business unit, Compuware APM makes application performance management for big data “both simple and straightforward across the lifecycle from development to test to production.’

“To help customers grappling with this maturing technology where expertise is scarce, Compuware APM for Amazon EMR adds visibility and helps organisations better manage their big data workloads and transactions, enabling them to leap ahead in the analytics race.”

Tack said Compuware APM for Amazon EMR can be easily purchased through the AWS Marketplace .

Compuware lists the main features and capabilities of the APM solution with Amazon EMR as including:

•    Profiling Hadoop jobs in production clusters to see which teams are utilising the cluster and exactly why, to code level, a job takes minutes or hours to run

•    Automatically identifying performance hotspots in Amazon EMR, such as whether the problem is due to a poor configuration, over-utilised or failed infrastructure, or inefficient code

•    Eliminating the need to scour log files by identifying the root cause of a job failure in one click. Exceptions, stack traces and logged data are automatically identified by PurePath Technology, showing both where and why failures occur. Deep facts can be easily shared with development to quickly fix issues.
