Logging in to Cloudera Observability

Learn how to access the Cloudera Observability web user interface to start viewing your diagnostic data for analysis.

Describes how to access Cloudera Observability and begin working with the Main and the Environment navigation panels.
Do the following:
  • For CDP Private Cloud:
    • Verify that Telemetry Publisher is enabled for Cloudera Observability on your Workload clusters and that they are associated with Telemetry Publisher.
    • If applicable, verify that your environment's data services are using Cloudera Data Engineering (CDE) version 1.19 or above and/or Cloudera Data Warehouse (CDW) version 1.6.3 or above. Starting with these versions the collected diagnostic data is categorized and displayed within their Data Service category in the Cloudera Observability web UI.
  • For CDP Public Cloud:

    Verify that Enable Workload Analytics was turned on when you registered your Data Hub environment and when you installed your Data Engineering service.

  1. In a supported web browser log in to the Cloudera Observability web UI by doing the following:
    1. In a supported browser, log into the Cloudera Data Platform.
      The CDP Public Cloud web interface landing page opens.

    The Cloudera Observability web UI Landing page opens to the main navigation panel.
  2. From the main navigation panel, select Financial Governance, which opens the Chargeback page. When configured, by you, this page displays the total costs and the hourly CPU and memory usage for all of your cost centers, including the unutilized resource usage costs from the Uncategorised section. For more information about the Financial Governance feature and how to configure your cost centers and assign them to your resources, click the Related Information link below.
  3. From the main navigation panel, select Analytics.
    The Cloudera Observability Environments page opens.
  4. Select an environment required for analysis.

    The Environment navigation panel opens, which hierarchically lists the environment and its services hosted on the selected environment.

  5. Depending on the environment selected, verify that the Cluster Summary page is displayed for the environment's cluster required for analysis.
    To display the Cluster Summary page for a Data Lake, Database Catalog, Data Engineering, and Data Hub environment type, do one of the following:
    • From the Environment panel, expand the service's category and depending on the service, locate and select the Data Hub's cluster, the Data Engineering's Virtual Cluster, or the Data Warehouse's Virtual Warehouse that is required for analysis.
    • In the Data Services table, drill-down through the service links to locate and select the Data Hub's cluster, the Data Engineering's Virtual Cluster, or the Data Warehouse's Virtual Warehouse that is required for analysis.

    The Cluster Summary page, which is displayed as the title in your browser tab, displays performance trends and metrics about the processed jobs and queries and enables you to view historical trends for analysis when you select a predefined or custom time period from the Time-Range filter list.

  6. From the cluster's ENGINES, the Data Engineering's Virtual Cluster, or the Data Warehouse's Virtual Warehouse, select a workload engine of interest.
    When an engine is selected, the name of the engine is displayed in the browser tab and the page's chart widgets display information about the workload jobs run by the selected engine, such as which jobs or queries have failed or are slow, their processing time, missed SLAs (thresholds), user and pool metrics, and outlier issues.
  7. In the workload engine's page, review its chart widgets and then select a chart widget, such as Suboptimal. Select a link or bar and drill down further to view more information, such as health checks, execution details, baselines, and trends.
