Hey Joe,

Hadoop and HBase are pretty monitoring tool agnostic. It does provide
a number of metrics via JMX and a REST interface which you can tie
into the monitoring tool of your choice. You can enable collection via
the REST service by editing
$HADOOP_HOME/conf/hadoop-metrics.properties and setting the *.class
settings, e.g.

# Configuration of the "dfs" context for /metrics

# Configuration of the "mapred" context for /metrics

Would configure both HDFS and MapReduce to make the metrics available,
but not write them to anything. There is also a GangliaContext for
integrating directly with Ganglia. Similar settings exist for HBase.

DFS for now and will be expanding this rapidly as well as adding Hbase. I am looking to find
out what people are using for monitoring Hadoop currently. I want to be notified if a node
fails, performance statistics, failed drive or services ect. I was thinking of using Opsview
and trying in Ganglia. Thanks in advance
