Monitoring MapR With ELK

Mathieu Dumoulin shows how to feed MapR metrics into ElasticSearch and monitor with Kibana:

There are several ways to keep the data updated: a cron job, a linux daemon running as a service, or a stream tool such as Streamsets.

The easiest way might be to run the task as a cron job with an interval of one to thirty seconds depending on monitoring needs. This may be suitable for a proof of concept or a small test cluster or even a production cluster. The main drawback of using a cron is that the control over the execution is limited to running the script and resources aren’t shared, meaning we are opening and closing a connection to Elasticsearch as well as doing the work to call the rest endpoint for each invocation.

Kibana makes for some pretty dashboards.
