Big data technology is often considered the front runner when an organization wants to transform its legacy IT into the new style of IT for better efficiency, reliability and decision making. The benefits of Big Data include:
Greater insights into customer sentiment
Improved employee productivity
Smoother operations and processes
Better decision making
But then there's nothing like a free meal in this world!!! Sure Big Data offers big benefits, but it also requires big computing and storage resources. Deploying such ultra-powerful resources comes with a bigger challenge—monitoring the performance and availability of these resources. With big data projects, there’s a lot of information coming in, and it has to be analyzed in real time to be effective and precise. Now the question is: How do you ensure that these resources continue to perform without disruption so that data keeps on coming, processed continuously and information is stored without any problem?
Let's look at a real-life example.
If you are monitoring a twitter channel for your business, you could be receiving millions of tweets each day. You need a highly scalable and reliable infrastructure to continuously process these tweets to truly get the value of the data. Let's say you use Apache Kafka as a messaging server, Apache Spark to process all these tweets and finally Apache HBase to store all the processed data. As long as everything is green, the days are rosy. But on one bad day, JVM of Apache Spark started using lots of memory for some reason or let’s say you can't connect to the HBase system due to network latency. From here on, the situation gets out of control within minutes—like how sand slips through a closed fist.
To get this situation under control, you need a smart monitoring solution that quickly detects the problem, identifies the root cause efficiently and suggests a possible action. HP Operations Bridge with its event correlation ( more accurately, TBEC - Topology Based Event Correlation) feature precisely addresses this need. Its wide coverage on the application spectrum makes it easy to monitor any multi-layer, complex infrastructure topology as a whole. Be it a Database or Cloud, Big Data or Middleware, Operations Bridge has a solution to address your needs.
Please watch the video to understand how the TBEC feature in HP Operations Bridge solution efficiently detect and isolate a problem in a complex Big Data infrastructure topology.
