Enabling Proactive Issue ResolutionDownload white paper
Given the pace of Big Data and the critical nature of data applications, it has become imperative for organizations to stay ahead of cluster issues and resolve them rapidly. This has fundamentally changed the model for delivering Hadoop support from reactive to proactive monitoring and actionable recommendations that are actually delivered prior to customer experiencing an issue.

With SmartSense 1.4, we focused on the following key areas:
Recommendations In Ambari
Recommendations now flow directly into Ambari and using the SmartSense View you can now apply recommendations with the click of a button. SmartSense uses Apache Ambari to apply configuration recommendations, making recommendations easy to apply with full support for Apache Ambari’s configuration version control.
Need to share recommendations with another team? You can now export recommendations as a spreadsheet for easy sharing using our ‘Export as Excel’ functionality. With a single click, you can share your recommendations with your colleagues to help with approval or application.
Troubleshoot YARN Apps & Hive Queries
SmartSense now allows you to capture logs, explain plans, and container logs for YARN applications and Hive Queries. No more spending time manually gathering configuration and logs to troubleshoot complex YARN and Hive support cases, SmartSense handles it for you with a few clicks.
SmartSense improves your visibility into cluster activity with visualization and reporting capabilities for YARN, MapReduce/Tez, and HDFS. SmartSense 1.3 provides operators with the ability to quickly understand how business users and tenants are using cluster resources.
SmartSense Gateway simplifies the process of uploading bundles of diagnostic information to Hortonworks Support. In SmartSense 1.3, users have additional upload options with SFTP, HTTPS and authenticated HTTPS proxy support.
Giving customers the flexibility to pre-process cluster diagnostic information before it is encrypted and sent to Hortonworks has always been a priority for SmartSense. In this release we’ve expanded the number of out-of-the-box Anonymization rules to give customer more options for securing cluster diagnostic information.
Getting a clear idea of how business users and tenants are using cluster resources is critical for resource allocation in any multi-tenant environment. SmartSense gives operations teams the ability to visualize and report on cluster utilization data for critical Hadoop components. Answering questions like, who is using the most HDFS resources, what jobs are taking the longest to run, which jobs are consuming and wasting the most resources and how much should I charge each business unit for their use over the last quarter, are easily answered with SmartSense.
