Hadoop and Spark Metrics in Ganglia

Ganglia reports Hadoop metrics for each instance. The various types of metrics are prefixed by category: distributed file system (dfs.*), Java virtual machine (jvm.*), MapReduce (mapred.*), and remote procedure calls (rpc.*).

YARN-based Ganglia metrics such as Spark and Hadoop are not available for EMR release versions 4.4.0 and 4.5.0. Use a later version to use these metrics.

Ganglia metrics for Spark generally have prefixes for YARN application ID and Spark DAGScheduler. So prefixes follow this form:

  • DAGScheduler.*

  • application_xxxxxxxxxx_xxxx.driver.*

  • application_xxxxxxxxxx_xxxx.executor.*
