Effectively Monitoring The "SMACK Stack" With Fast Data Platform

Technologies such as Apache Spark, Apache Mesos, Akka, Apache Cassandra, and Apache Kafka (a.k.a. the “SMACK” stack) are increasingly the tools of choice for architects and developers when building streaming Fast Data applications.

But once these applications are in production and running at scale, Ops and DevOps teams find it challenging to monitor these complex applications from an end-to-end perspective.

Legacy monitoring tools, designed for simple monolithic systems, can’t handle these distributed systems well, and teams can’t afford to spend hours or days isolating and troubleshooting production problems manually. That’s where OpsClarity from Lightbend can help.

In this webinar with Lightbend Principal Engineer, David Brinegar, we review how OpsClarity is purpose-built to intelligently monitor streaming applications and help Ops teams resolve issues quickly. Included in the video is a 20-minute demo showing out of the box operational metrics, end-to-end visibility into data pipelines and the ability to correlate problems and issues across various streaming components.
