Cluster management

    After successfully installing and running a mapreduce app using instructions at
    I now see some issues:
    – jobs taking a long time to execute
    – very few slots on 12 core machines
    – one node seems to be having it’s own (probably unrelated to Hortonworks) issues

    Question: what tools should I be using after a manual install to monitor my cluster, change number of slots, tune performance, etc.

    Hi Paul,
    Were you aware of Ambari? Ambari assist in the ease of administering the cluster. You can make config changes and it also receives alerts from nagios and display metrics from ganglia.
    Here is some info:

    Hope that helps.

    Great. Am I correct in understanding that there will soon be a beta of Ambari that will work on my Windows cluster?
    Or is this already available.
