HadoopOps and CDH4

Explorer

Has anyone any success with the HadoopOps App using CDH4?

The app's system requirements explicitly lists CDH3 and HDP only. We're about to start upgrading our Hadoop Clusters from CDH3 to CDH4 and would really like to be able to use this app.

I'd even be willing to help beta test a CDH4 supported version if there is such an offering.

hi pmacdougall, thanks for asking.

CDH3 and HDP1.0 are the only vendor-specific distributions that are officially supported currently. However, its important to understand that this is not based on a technical constraint of the HadoopOps app per se. Some users have indeed deployed HadoopOps on CDH4 clusters already. In these cases, users rely on the power of the Splunk platform - configuring new data sources, adding knowledge objects, and creating their own charts and panels, etc.

That said, we certainly want to enable HadoopOps app deployments with a variety of server topologies in future revisions. I suggest you file a support case for this request -- I'd love to follow up to learn about your current use and how you expect this to change upon upgrade.
