Grafana – hidden treasure in HDP

I think not many Hortonworks (one of the leading Hadoop distributions) administrators know about Grafana (very cool tool for visualising time based data). You go to Ambari -> Ambari Metrics -> Quick Links -> Grafana:

ambari_metrics_grafana

After you open Grafana, there are several dashboards:

ambar_grafana_dashboards

Each one may help you in specific issues. For example:

ambari_metrics_grafana_namenodes

(screens were taken from HDP version 2.4)
