TIBCO Operational Intelligence Hawk RedTail Community Content Pack for Apache Kafka
TIBCO Operational Intelligence Hawk® (Formerly TIBCO Hawk®) and TIBCO Operational Intelligence Hawk® RedTail provide the industry's best, sophisticated tool for monitoring and managing distributed applications and systems throughout the enterprise. With Hawk, system administrators can monitor application parameters, behavior, and loading activities for all nodes in a local or wide-area network and take action when pre-defined conditions occur. In many cases, runtime failures or slowdowns can be repaired automatically within seconds of their discovery, reducing unscheduled outages and slowdowns of critical business systems.
TIBCO OI Hawk RedTail - Container Edition helps you to monitor and manage distributed applications by providing distributed rules, alerts, and remediation actions. You can enable additional monitoring capabilities in TIBCO OI Hawk RedTail - Container Edition with the “TIBCO® perational Intelligence Hawk® RedTail - Standard Edition License”, such as centralized storage and processing of metrics, customizable dashboards, tag based rulebases, fine-grained role based access control, collect and forward logs to TIBCO Loglogic LMI and more.
TIBCO OI Hawk RedTail Container Edition also allows you to create or import Content Packs. A Content Pack is out of the box, curated collection of monitoring and visualization resources templates which include Metrics (Data Models), Tags, Rulebases, and Dashboards. The Content Pack helps you save time in creating Metric Exporters, Tags and Tag-based Rulebases, Dashboards and other artifacts which help to bootstrap users given the wide range of metrics with endless monitoring and visualization possibilities.
In this article, we will describe how to import and configure the Community Edition of Content Pack for Apache Kafka into your OI Hawk RedTail Container Edition environment.
