Apache Ambari project is aimed at making Hadoop management simpler by developing software for provisioning, managing, and monitoring Apache Hadoop clusters. Ambari provides an intuitive, easy-to-use Hadoop management web UI backed by its RESTful APIs. In this post we will see how to install Apache Ambari on Red Hat Instance on Amazon EWS cloud.

Ambari provides a dashboard for monitoring health and status of the Hadoop cluster.
Ambari leverages Ganglia for metrics collection.
Ambari leverages Nagios for system alerting and will send emails when your attention is needed (e.g., a node goes down, remaining disk space is low, etc).

LApache Ambari Installation:

Lets start installation of Apache ambari follow the steps and in case of issues send mail at info@DataGrazp.com

Step: 1 Check the prerequisite.

Amazon Web Services account with the ability to launch 7 large instances of EC2 nodes.
A Mac or a Linux machine. You could also use Windows but you will have to install additional software such as SSH clients and SCP clients, etc.
Lastly, we assume that you have basic familiarity with EC2 to the extent that you have created EC2 instances and SSH’d in.
Step:2 Get the information on connection details of your server instance from Administrator along with key and store the key locally. In current Environment keys are located on you’re your desktop as shown below:

Step:3 Get Information over your public and private DNS from the Batch Adminitrator. This information will be used to connect to instances using Putty or Cygwin.This Lab considers following Public and private DNS:

Public DNS: ec2-54-205-232-244.compute-1.amazonaws.com

Private DNS: ip-10-186-145-41.ec2.internal

Step:4 Connect to the instance using Putty. Click on the Putty icon and launch putty .

Step:5

In the Host Name box, enter user_name@public_dns_name. Be sure to specify the appropriate user name for your AMI. For example:

Amazon Linux AMI, the user name is ec2-user.
RHEL5 AMI, the user name is either root or ec2-user.
Ubuntu AMI, the user name is ubuntu.
Fedora AMI, the user name is either fedora or ec2-user.
SUSE Linux, the user name is root.
Otherwise, if ec2-user and root don’t work, check with the AMI provider.
Under Connection type, select SSH.
Ensure that Port is 22.

Step:6

In the Category pane, expand Connection, expand SSH, and then select Auth. Complete the following:

Click Browse

Select the .ppk file that you generated for your key pair, and then click Open.
(Optional) If you plan to start this session again later, you can save the session information for future use. Select Session in the Category tree, enter a name for the session in Saved Sessions, and then click Save.
Click Open to start the PuTTY session.

Step:7

Once you get connected follow the following step.

Step:8

Setting up Ambari:

Get the bits of HDP and add it to the repo:

Follow the steps as indicated
