Monthly Event - Second Tuesday of every month: 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM (EDT)


Event Details

NOTE: This month's meeting will be held on the 31st floor instead of the usual 39th floor

This month's meeting we'll be having a talk on Apache's Hadoop 

"The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using a simple programming model. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage. Rather than rely on hardware to deliver high-avaiability, the library itself is designed to detect and handle failures at the application layer, so delivering a highly-availabile service on top of a cluster of computers, each of which may be prone to failures."
Title: Hadoop Monitoring Best Practices meets Whirlwind tour
This talk is a hybrid of two talks: The Hadoop Whirlwind tour describes the components of Hadoop that manage distributed storage and grid computing and demonstrates how to use them to solve complex data problems. The Hadoop Monitoring Best Practices talk describes how to monitor and manage this multi node system with popular tools like Nagios and Cacti.

The talk will be given by Edward Capriolo of Media6 Degrees.  Edward is a committer on the Hadoop-Hive project and author of the Cassandra High Performance Cookbook.
