Monitoring: Amazon EMR

Amazon EMR (Elastic MapReduce) is a fully-managed cloud service offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that enables users to quickly and easily provision, configure, and scale distributed computing clusters. EMR is designed to simplify big data processing, making running and managing big data workloads easier and more cost-effective using popular open-source tools such as Apache Spark, Apache Hadoop, and Apache Hive.

Why should you monitor Amazon EMR?

Monitoring Amazon EMR is crucial to ensure the smooth functioning of the big data processing workloads running on the clusters. One of the key reasons to monitor EMR is to receive timely notifications about issues that may arise within the cluster. For example, when a cluster node fails or when there is a significant increase in resource utilization, it can cause performance issues, delays, or even downtime.
