Part 1: Alerting for the Open-Core Enterprise Data Stack

Acceldata’s alerting platform is built for Data Intensive Applications responsible for stream processing, real-time and batch processing.

  • Lack of capacity on a Yarn Queue
  • Ever increasing size of Hive Data Partitions
  • Every increasing number of HDFS small files.
  • SLA Violations on critical Hive Business Processes
  • Stuck Jobs, due to straggling Spark SQL
  • Lagging Consumers of a Kafka Topic system
  • Poorly written Spark code resulting in excessive garbage collection
  • PySpark ML Algorithms slowing down from their standard SLAs
  • Hardware issues such as — CPU utilisation, Slow Disk, I/O issues.
  • An abstract separation, absolute non-interference of core data systems
  • Unified DSL for creation of alerts across all kinds of data-systems
  • Robust evaluation of comparative, mathematical, statistical and ML rules
  • The evaluation engine should work on various metrics datasources of the types such as — document store, time-series, in-stream
  • Unified, intuitively usable system to configure infra and application alerts alike
  • Process equivalent communication alerts ranging from email to pagers
  • An ability to trigger auto-corrective pre-configured workflows
  • Alert Service — Glue component for the rest of the system. It runs evaluators corresponding to the configured actions.
  • Evaluators — Converts alerts definition DSL to appropriate database queries and executes them at the proper schedule.
  • Notification system — When an evaluator triggers an incident, the notification system sends the incident across various channels.
  • REST Server — Provides APIs for Alerts CRUD, incidents and executions.
  • Administration Interface — Single page application runs in a browser and is used for configuring the system.
