Data Application Performance Management

Solutions Gallery > Data Application Performance Management

Solution overview

Enterprises are running more and more big data applications in production (like ETL, analytics, machine learning, etc.). These applications have to meet performance-related business needs such as deadlines (e.g., ETL job to finish by market close), fast response time (e.g., Hive queries), and reliability (e.g., fraud app). The data platform team (architect, operations and developers) needs to ensure application reliability, optimize storage and compute while minimizing infrastructure costs, and optimize DevOps productivity.

Unravel provides a single pane to optimize, troubleshoot, and analyze the performance of big data applications. Unravel correlates all performance metrics across every layer of the big data stack, from the infrastructure to the services and applications, as well as within each layer to give a true full-stack view of application performance. Unravel then applies artificial intelligence, machine learning, and predictive analytics to empower operations to optimize, troubleshoot and analyze from a single tool.


  • Automatically speed up applications and improve resource usage efficiency
  • Detect, diagnose and fix missed SLAs
  • Automatically detect and eliminate rogue or resource wasting jobs
  • Get more out of storage – Remove “cold” tables, maximize tiered storage utilization
  • Get more throughput by allocating the right size of pools and containers


  • “MRI” view of application performance – from code to infrastructure
  • Automatically detect performance bottlenecks and failures
  • Avoid or resolve contention issues
  • Easily correlate infrastructure, services and application issues
  • Setup auto-actions to resolve recurring issues automatically


  • Chargeback –reporting for all usage on all clusters
  • Cost savings – how to save costs by application, user, storage, CPU
  • Auditing and governance – track usage and access to data and applications by users
  • Ops dashboard – bird’s eye view on health and performance of the entire stack
  • 360° visibility – about applications, services, infrastructure and users

Reduce Cost:

Eliminate wastage and poor resource allocation across your infrastructure.


Full Stack

Go beyond monitoring graphs and logs

Unravel manages performance up, down, and across every layer of the big data stack to create a single view of application performance.


Simplify Big Data Operations

Unravel’s built-in machine learning and predictive analytics are your expert companions to detect, diagnose, and help resolve problems.


Move away from reactive trouble ticket escalations to pro-active Ops

Unravel’s artificial intelligence can automatically fix problems and prevent new ones from happening.


Unravel takes an application-first approach that creates a correlated view of all the performance KPIs across the big data stack. It also provides automated insight into the root causes of issues as well as recommendations to fix them. Unravel makes it simple to plan and manage performance because it provides full visibility into utilization and how to optimize every layer of the stack.
