According to a recent press release, “The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today that Apache® Eagle™ has graduated from the Apache Incubator to become a Top-Level Project (TLP), signifying that the project’s community and products have been well-governed under the ASF’s meritocratic process and principles. Apache Eagle is an Open Source monitoring and alerting solution for instantly identifying security and performance issues on Big Data platforms such as Apache Hadoop, Apache Spark, and more. ‘We are proud to complete the incubation process and graduate as an Apache Top-Level Project,’ said Edward Zhang, Vice President of Apache Eagle. ‘The community is actively improving product coverage for analyzing various performance and security issues in large Hadoop clusters’.”
The release goes on, “Eagle was first developed at eBay to solve the monitoring problem for a large scale Hadoop cluster. The eBay team soon realized it would be useful to the whole community, and submitted the project to the Apache Incubator in October 2015. Since then, the project gained a lot of attraction from various developers and organizations for its broad usage scenarios, such as system/service monitoring, application performance monitoring, and security breach detection.”
It continues, “Apache Eagle features include: Highly extensible – Apache Eagle builds its core framework around the application concept; the application itself includes the logic for monitoring source data collection, pre-processing and normalization. Developers can easily develop out-of-box monitoring applications using Eagle’s application framework, and deploy into Eagle. Scalable – the project’s fundamental runtime is based on proven Big Data technologies, and applies a scalable core to make it adaptive according to the throughput of the data stream as well as the number of monitored applications. Real-time – provides state-of-the-art alert engine to identify security breaches and performance issues.”
