This Report provides the user with the capability to choose parameter based on which the Top 5 nodes are selected. For example, the report snippet shows a node selected based on Average Swap Utilization. You can choose other resource usage parameters like CPU utilization and Memory utilization as well.







The Hadoop Job Running Status Report provides the capability to view the details of Job Statistics like – Average Number of Jobs Submitted, Average Number of Jobs Failed and Average Number of Jobs Completed. The report provides an easy to use interface to select the node for which you wish to see the Job details.










Apart from the Out of the box reports, the user can extend the reporting solution by building custom reports using HP SHR’s Content Development Environment (CDE) to meet her/his specific reporting requirements. The CDE provides the ability to perform a high level of customization.
