About This Training

This 1-day course by Cloudera Education introduces Cloudera Observability, a service designed to help you interactively understand your environment, data services, workloads, clusters, and resources. Its wide range of metrics and health tests empowers you to identify and troubleshoot both existing and potential problems. Cloudera Observability also provides prescriptive guidance and recommendations, enabling you to quickly address issues and optimize solutions. After a workload is completed, the Cloudera Manager Management Service's Telemetry Publisher collects diagnostic information about the job or query and the processing cluster, sending it to Cloudera Observability for analysis.
