Compuware Offers Hadoop Performance Optimization Toolset

Compuware Corporation, a technology performance company, announced pricing for what it says is the industry's first deep transaction management solution for optimizing performance of Apache Hadoop applications. Compuware APM's dynaTrace Enterprise for Hadoop will be offered starting at just $1,000 per Hadoop Java Virtual Machine (JVM).

According to Compuware, applications using Hadoop MapReduce suffer from many of the performance challenges and bottlenecks that plague current distributed applications, though the volume of performance data can be much larger. Optimizing compute and data distribution across nodes, assuring job execution efficiency, identifying I/O bottlenecks, tuning CPU and memory consumption amongst thousands of nodes requires deep insight into the Hadoop environment.

"The market for Hadoop applications is exploding," says John Van Siclen, general manager of Compuware's APM business unit. "Our Hadoop customers seek a new generation [application performance management, APM] approach that goes beyond log-file analysis and point tools. They expect an APM system that's built for the Hadoop architecture, supports dynamic, elastic environments out-of-the-box, and is easy to deploy and use."
