Given the pace of Big Data and the critical nature of data applications, it has become imperative for organizations to stay ahead of cluster issues and resolve them rapidly. This has fundamentally changed the model for delivering Hadoop support from reactive to proactive monitoring and actionable recommendations that are actually delivered prior to customer experiencing an issue.
Hortonworks SmartSense™: Enabling Proactive Issue Resolution & Personalized Cluster Insights. Download the White Paper to read more.
Hortonworks SmartSense™ provides a collection of tools and services to proactively prevent common cluster problems. With SmartSense customers can quickly capture the diagnostic information required to resolve issues. This information is also used to generate proactive recommendations that improve cluster performance, security and operations. SmartSense extends the reach of customers’ operations teams with access to industry-best practices and domain expertise of Hortonworks engineering and support teams.
WHAT'S NEW IN SMARTSENSE
With SmartSense 1.3, we focused on the following key areas:
Cluster Activity Reporting and Visualization
SmartSense improves your visibility into cluster activity with visualization and reporting capabilities for YARN, MapReduce/Tez, and HDFS. SmartSense 1.3 provides operators with the ability to quickly understand how business users and tenants are using cluster resources.
Multiple Bundle Upload Option
SmartSense Gateway simplifies the process of uploading bundles of diagnostic information to Hortonworks Support. In SmartSense 1.3, users have additional upload options with SFTP, HTTPS and authenticated HTTPS proxy support.
Expanded Anonymization/ Redaction Capabilities
Giving customers the flexibility to pre-process cluster diagnostic information before it is encrypted and sent to Hortonworks has always been a priority for SmartSense. In this release we’ve expanded the number of out-of-the-box Anonymization rules to give customer more options for securing cluster diagnostic information.

REMOVE FRICTION FROM SUPPORT CASE TROUBLESHOOTING
SmartSense provides Hortonworks support engineers with the context, configuration and log information that is critical to resolving support cases quickly. SmartSense efficiently collects diagnostic information, performance metrics and log files. This information is packaged into a single file that can be uploaded with your support case giving support engineers a comprehensive view of the issue. Providing up-front access to this diagnostic information helps reduce the back-and-forth nature of troubleshooting that consumes valuable time and resources.
STAY AHEAD OF ISSUES WITH PROACTIVE ANALYSIS
SmartSense also helps customers stay ahead of issues by providing actionable recommendations that are tailored for individual clusters and workloads. SmartSense customers can benefit from over 200 rules that have been created to produce recommendations for cluster performance, security and operations for each individual cluster node. On average, the SmartSense service produces 15 highly impactful recommendations for a typical cluster. These recommendations ensure that your cluster configuration keeps pace with the changing Hadoop landscape and diverse workloads.
UNDERSTAND WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON IN YOUR CLUSTER
Getting a clear idea of how business users and tenants are using cluster resources is critical for resource allocation in any multi-tenant environment. SmartSense gives operations teams the ability to visualize and report on cluster utilization data for critical Hadoop components. Answering questions like, who is using the most HDFS resources, what jobs are taking the longest to run, which jobs are consuming and wasting the most resources and how much should I charge each business unit for their use over the last quarter, are easily answered with SmartSense.
