Working with alerts, costs, and reports
Cloudera Observability features enable you to define cost centers for planning,
budgeting, and justifying resources, create alert actions that monitor your workloads and trigger
a corrective action when applicable, and enable reports that send you daily statistics about your
environment. Analyzing your environment costs with Cloudera Observability The Cloudera Observability Financial Governance Chargeback feature collects CPU, memory, and resource usage data from your environment, allocates those charges to your custom cost centers, and visually displays the results. It provides an in-depth visibility into the workload resource costs of your environment’s infrastructure that can be used for planning, budgeting, and forecasting. Triggering action alerts across jobs and queries You can trigger action alerts, that are defined by you, across your workload applications, jobs, and queries whilst they are running with the Cloudera Observability Auto Actions feature. When a workload application, job, or query matches the action's defined threshold value, the auto action event is triggered. For example, you may have a scenario where too much memory is being allocated to specific jobs and you would like to take an action before a problem occurs, such as avoiding memory exhaustion. In this case, you can create an auto action that triggers a notification alert when a job is identified as having an over-allocation of memory. You can then either manually take steps to alleviate the problem or include the Kill action option that stops the job in question. Working with cluster reports When enabled, Cloudera Observability mails you daily statistics about your cluster, such as your cluster's performance.
