MapR Monitoring Storage Options

If you plan to install MapR Monitoring, review the installation options available for MapR Monitoring storage.

The following installation options are available for metric storage with OpenTSDB and log storage with Elasticsearch. You can store logs and metrics on a non-MapR cluster but this scenario is not supported by MapR.

Store Metrics and Logs on the Monitored Cluster

You can store metrics and logs on the nodes in same MapR cluster that you want to monitor.

Store Metrics and Logs on a Storage Cluster

You can store metrics and logs for the MapR cluster that you want to monitor on nodes in a different MapR cluster.

In this case, Kibana and Grafana can be installed on either cluster.

Use a Single Cluster to Store Monitoring Data for Multiple Clusters

You can store metrics and logs for more than one MapR cluster on a shared set of nodes. With this option, a single dashboard can monitor multiple clusters.

In this case, Kibana and Grafana can be installed on any of these clusters.
