Sematext Announces The First And Only Monitoring And Alerting Solution For Apache Storm

New functionality in Sematext's Performance Monitoring solution (SPM) is also added for Redis after numerous user requests to complement existing monitoring support for Hadoop, Elasticsearch, Kafka, Solr, ZooKeeper and more

BROOKLYN, N.Y., Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sematext Group, Inc., a Brooklyn-based Search and Big Data analytics products and services company, has added Apache Storm and Redis monitoring and alerting to SPM, its core Performance Monitoring solution.  An enterprise-class solution available in Cloud (SaaS) and On Premises editions, SPM monitors critical Search and Big Data services like Hadoop, Elasticsearch, Kafka, Solr, ZooKeeper and many others running on hundreds of thousands of servers all over the globe.

User demand from Sematext's diverse customer base of Fortune 100 multinationals to innovative startups prompted the development of this new functionality, which features benefits like dynamic real-time customizable dashboards graphing performance metrics alongside business KPI trends, built-in alerts, Algolerts (automatic anomaly detection), integration with Sematext's log analytics tool (Logsene) and many other time- and effort saving functions.

"We are excited to add monitoring and alerting for Apache Storm and Redis to SPM," said Otis Gospodnetic, Sematext's founder and CEO.  "Originally developed at Twitter for handling over 500 million tweets per day, Storm's ability to perform distributed, real-time mining of high volume data streams has become indispensable to many organizations.  And we didn't just stop at adding Storm monitoring and alerting.  We've also added support for Redis, a fast key-value store that has taken hold with developers everywhere due to its blazing performance and ability to process literally thousands of requests per second.  These new additions to SPM will surely save our users significant time -- and many headaches!" 

Added Eugene Dvorkin, a software engineer at WebMD, "SPM fills the gap for robust performance monitoring and alerting for Apache Storm deployments at any scale.  It visualizes Storm cluster performance and makes it easier to optimize it.  I think SPM is a great addition to any Storm cluster deployment."

Sematext is already working on additional functionality in SPM (and also their other solutions like Logsene and Search Analytics) to meet the needs of IT and Engineering executives, DevOps professionals and SysAdmins around the globe.

Sematext Group, Inc. is a Brooklyn-based Search and Big Data analytics products and services company supported by a globally dispersed workforce. The professional services division provides expert consulting to clients like Comcast, Thomson Reuters, Tumblr, Instagram, The Library of Congress, Lockheed Martin, and many other companies large and small around the world.  Sematext's software products are modular, scalable, and available as SaaS solutions.

The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addresses many of the challenges faced by developers and operators as monolithic applications transition towards a distributed microservice architecture. A tracing tool like Jaeger analyzes what's happening as a transaction moves through a distributed system. Monitoring software like Prometheus captures time-series events for real-time alerting and other uses. Grafeas and Kritis provide security polic...
