JNBridge this month extends its interoperability tools with JNBridge Lab, a .NET-based visual monitoring system for a Hadoop cluster.
This lab provides what has been marked out as a "conceptual framework" for visually monitoring the status of all the nodes in a Hadoop cluster in real time.
Designed to work with any implementation of Hadoop, the lab demonstrates how to integrate an existing visualization tool, like Visio, to leverage the graphical capabilities available in Microsoft .NET.
"Tools currently available for managing an Apache Hadoop cluster are restricted by the lack of direct API access to the Hadoop nodes themselves. Without robust interoperability and integration mechanisms, monitoring and managing Hadoop is either limited to simple HTML, or to a single implementation of Hadoop," said Wayne Citrin, CTO of JNBridge.
Citrin insists that this JNBridge Lab is versatile and shows developers how to push or pull any information in or out of Hadoop that its APIs permit.
In addition to Microsoft Visio, developers could easily expand the example to use WPF or WinForms, or run on Linux with Mono.
All JNBridge labs are distributed freely, with full documentation and source code.
