General Information.

Apache Ambari is a tool for provisioning, managing, and monitoring Apache Hadoop clusters. Ambari consists of a set of RESTful APIs and a browser-based management interface. 

Ambari enables System Administrators to:

  • Provision a Hadoop Cluster
    Ambari provides an easy-to-use, step-by-step wizard for installing Hadoop services across any number of hosts.
    Ambari handles configuration of Hadoop services for the cluster.
  • Manage a Hadoop Cluster
    Ambari provides central management for starting, stopping, and reconfiguring Hadoop services across the entire cluster.
  • Monitor a Hadoop Cluster
    Ambari provides a dashboard for monitoring health and status of the Hadoop cluster.
    Ambari will send emails when your attention is needed (e.g., a node goes down, remaining disk space is low, etc).
