Ambari Service Customization

  • #30654

    Please let me know the JIRA numbers of there is any work planned for adding/customizing any new service like Flume, Storm or any existing service on Ambari dashboard. How will I add my new service like Storm if I want to monitor through Ambari. As of now I think it’s customizing/modifying existing Ambari source code from github which can do this but I do not want to it to be repetitive task if same is being considered by Hortonworks already in upcoming release.

    Please help me.

    Some info on adding new services to Ambari can be found on the Ambari project site. To add a service to Stack, you can checkout this wiki page…

    As for specific services you’d like to see added, please file a JIRA Improvement…

    And there is some discussion starting about making it easier to add new services to a Stack. You can follow the discussion here…

    Thank you,


    Thanks Jeff. This is I believe modifying the source code and deploying to run this behavior. I am more interested to add and configure any new service like Storm so that I can monitor storm running on different hosts.
    I have also created a JIRA story (AMBARI-2813) and linked to parent story (AMBARI-2714).

    I am seeing that there is no provision even to configure or customize the existing services like Ganglia through Ambari UI. I have used HDP1.3 release docs to install and configure HDP1.3 on my local centOS machine which is 1 node cluster and running all services fine.
