Help Amazon Web Services Elastic Map Reduce

Amazon Elastic Map Reduce (EMR) Monitoring

Amazon EMR is a web service that enables users to run Big Data frameworks to process large volumes of data. Site24x7 monitors EMR to ensure uninterrupted data analysis and notifies users about the status changes in the associated AWS services, such as EC2 instances in the EMR cluster.

Setup and configuration

  • If you haven't done it already, enable access to your AWS resource by creating Site24x7 as an IAM user or by creating a cross-account IAM role between your account and Site24x7's AWS account. Learn more.
  • Next, In the Integrate AWS Account page, please make sure the EMR checkbox is selected in the Services to be discovered field.  Learn more.

Policies and permissions

Please make sure the following read level actions are present in the IAM policy assigned to Site24x7 entity. Learn more.

elasticmapreduce:List* - Displays the list of EMR clusters.

elasticmapreduce:Describe* - Provides the EMR configuration details.

Polling frequency

Site24x7 queries the AWS service level APIs and CloudWatch APIs as per the poll frequency set (1 minute to a day), to collect performance metrics. Learn more.

Receive an overview of all your important EMR metrics including HDFS, YARN, node, and memory metrics as time series charts.

Monitored Resources

If you're monitoring your EC2 instances or S3 buckets with Site24x7, the statuses of these services will be listed in the Monitored Resources tab. You can click on any of the services to view their detailed metrics.

Configurations

This tab displays additional configuration classifications for each instance group in a cluster. If the configurations for an instance group are modified, the new configurations will be reflected here.
