Ambari API - Developers

The Ambari API is a user-friendly Hadoop management portal that can be integrated with developers’ own applications. It is used to provide, manage, and monitor Apache Hadoop clusters after the installation of the clusters. When using the Apache Ambari platform, provisioning involves the installation and configuration of Hadoop services, while management involves the manipulation of the Hadoop services across a cluster. As for monitoring, system administrators can use the platform’s dashboard to track the performance of clusters in addition to gathering metrics and setting system alerts.
