New Database Plugins Now Available for New Relic

by bluemedora_editor on December 15, 2016

Blue Medora today announced the release of two new plugins — Apache Hadoop and Apache Cassandra — to extend the functionality of New Relic with advanced insight into key metrics, performance and troubleshooting. The plugins are part of Blue Medora’s True Visibility Suite for New Relic, which includes over 25 plugins designed to give you true visibility across the entire IT stack.

Apache Hadoop

When it comes to managing your Apache Hadoop databases, the more visibility you have, the better. More insight can ensure that the performance of your Hadoop clusters never falter — improving performance across your IT stack.


Figure 1: Gain more insight into more than 400 key metrics, including detail about cluster model managers with the Hadoop Plugin.

With the Blue Medora Apache Hadoop Plugin for New Relic, gain access to hundreds of metrics to clearly understand how your clusters and nodes are performing. Dive deeper into your data with a seamless integration with New Relic Insights, giving you the ability to analyze your data at a deeper level with NRQL queries, data apps, graph-based dashboards and custom reports.

Apache Cassandra

Ensuring high availability of your Apache Cassandra workloads serves as a crucial component of your IT stack. The Blue Medora Plugin for Apache Cassandra provides deep insight into the metrics that you need to optimize performance and improve the health and availability across your Cassandra resources.

Key metrics within the plugin include reads, writes, compressions, pending tasks and latency. View these in out-of-the-box dashboards and reports, or customize how you view or use the data through New Relic Insights.

As with all of Blue Medora’s plugins for New Relic, leverage a seamless integration with New Relic Alerts to view intelligent recommendations on how to improve system performance. The alerts make it easy to pinpoint issues quickly and accurately, so you can reduce troubleshooting time and eliminate mean-time-to-innocence (MTTI) hunts.
