Chukwa is a log collection and analysis framework for Apache Hadoop
clusters.

Chukwa has been incubating since 2010-07-14.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

 1. Update DNS entry for chukwa.apache.org
 2. Update mailing list location
 3. Update chukwa source and website to the new url.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

 Chukwa has been voted to graduate to TLP in September in
 general@incubator.  This will be the last incubator report.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Community has been stable and adding new features to Chukwa.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 New heatmap feature and updating to work with  being developed.  New
 demux parser improvement for configuring reducer parser has been
 developed.

Date of last release:

 2012-01-26

Chukwa is a log collection and analysis framework for Apache Hadoop clusters.

Chukwa has been incubating since 2010-07-14.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

 1. Generating an active community
 2. Keep code up-to-date with Hadoop trend
 3. Make another release

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware
of?

 Chukwa code needs to be maintained to keep up with new versions of Hadoop.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Committers are communicating more actively than previous quarter.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 More contributors have open JIRA to request features and experiment with
 code base.  Website is now svnpubsub enabled.  Team member list is updated
 with new committers.  Javadocs are regenerated to remove frame injection
 vulnerability.

 January 2012

Shepherd notes:

 ant: I'm a mentor not sheperd but i'll add some comments here. I think we
 should just graduate Chukwa. They have met all documented Incubator
 requirements, the only reason they're not graduated is that there isn't
 loads of development activity going on. Other low activity podlings have
 graduated before, Wink is a good example, or Steve which didn't even
 incubate. Chukwa has been incubating for 3 years so aren't just some
 fly-by-night thing, the "How has the project developed since the last
 report?" section of this report shows there is work going on, and that they
 fixed the javadoc frame injection security vulnerability shows they do jump
 to it when issues that need to be addressed arise. We're not adding any
 value to the podling by keeping it here in the Incubator, we should graduate
 them, perhaps including the mentors on the PMC if that helps alleviate any
 worries.

17 Apr 2013

Chukwa is a log collection and analysis framework for Apache Hadoop clusters.

Chukwa has been incubating since 2010-07-14.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

 1. Chukwa wiki is currently hosted in Hadoop subproject, it may be
    good to move it fully independent of Hadoop wiki.
 2. As of late, the overall activity has declined.  The podling needs
    to grow its active community.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of?

 * The podling is still working on increasing community activity.
   It's hoped that the addition of three new committers will help.

Shepherd notes:

16 Jan 2013

Chukwa is a log collection and analysis framework for Apache Hadoop
clusters.

Chukwa has been incubating since 2010-07-14.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

 1. Added a new policy page for how to contribute to Chukwa at:
    http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/Chukwa_How_To_Contribute
 2. Added irc channel to improve interaction among developers
 3.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

A retiring voting thread on Chukwa mailing list, and the voting
passed.  A second vote thread in Incubator mailing list was cancelled.
After further discussion, there are activities on Chukwa community
from contributors, and there is only a few contributors voiced to
continue.  William A Rowe Jr and Chris Douglas have resigned from
mentor position.  Bill resigned to reduce excessive participation in
too many communties.  Chris resigned in protest of difference in
opinion of Chukwa graduation/retirement decision.  There were
important discussions in Chukwa private, and incubator list, which
mentors did not agree on the community activity can meet graduation.
The worry of growth has taken it's toll in Chukwa community in the
past 2 years.  New plans are recommended from Alan Cabrera to plan for
what the community want to do in 2013.

How has the community developed since the last report?

The development activities is near the same level as the last report,
incremental and small improvements.

How has the project developed since the last report?

We added new JMX adaptor to stream monitoring metrics from Java
process.  A small number of bug fixes, and planning for the following
changes in 2013:

- Primary focus is to collect Hadoop and related technology log files and
 metrics
- Add web UI for showing a list of running adaptors
- Add web UI for showing status of data streams written to destination
- Consolidate Agent and Collector features to use Chukwa Agent as the
 primary process for data collection
- Replace SequenceFileWriter with WebHDFS support, discuss if changing
 sequence file format to avro make sense

Shepherd notes:
Dave Fisher: I see from late November discussions about Ant and Jukka
becoming new Mentors for Chukwa.
I see a VOTE for retirement with one voter continuing afterwards.
Retirement? How much more time to see if the community redevelops?

Chukwa is an open source data collection system for monitoring large
distributed systems. Chukwa is built on top of the Hadoop Distributed
File System (HDFS), HBase and Map/Reduce framework and inherits Hadoop’s
scalability and robustness. Chukwa also includes a flexible and powerful
toolkit for displaying, monitoring and analyzing results to make the best
use of the collected data.

Incubating since July, 2010.

 - Mailing lists have some activities.
 - 2 new committers since July.
 - 3 new contributors submitted patches since last report in July.

Most important issues to address:

 Growing the community, especially a new release manager

Any issues that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board might wish/need to be aware of:

 None at this time.

How has the community developed since the last report:

 Plan to release version 0.6 to fix some of the major bugs in version 0.5.

How has the project developed since the last report:

 More patches are received from new committer and contributors.
 The new patches are better quality to polish Chukwa code base for
 0.6 release.  Chukwa community need to train new release manager to
 release Chukwa 0.6 to ensure the community can continue to flourish.
 The previous concern of inactive development is less concerning than
 during January to July time frame.

How has the project developed since the last report:

 Prior to Hadoop summit, there was a thread discussion of retiring Chukwa
 because there does not seem to be much activity in the community.  All PPMC
 members seem to agree to this idea.  There were some free advertisement for
 Chukwa in Hadoop summit from word of mouth and speakers mentioned Chukwa in
 their talks.  There seems to be some contribution activities happening
 after Hadoop summit.  Discussion continued for retiring Chukwa because
 mentor does not think a community is developing.  We plan to open enrollment
 for Chukwa committers for people who are interested to continue development
 for the next quarter.  If activities generate a active community, then we
 will apply for becoming top level project.  If no activities happen, then
 we will retire Chukwa.

 - Chukwa 0.5.0 has been released
 - New committer Ahmed Fathalla has been voted in and granted proper karma
 - Mentor William A. Rowe Jr resigned
 - Alan D. Cabrera volunteer to become new mentor
 - For Chukwa 0.5.0 release, the majority of code has been contributed
   from single individual.
 - There are questions raised by mentors that there should be more
   diversity of the contribution from the community.
 - There are increased activities on user mailing list in the past
   month, but momentum and traction is still a concern.
 - More to the point, we had a discussion whether or not to continue
   Incubation for Chukwa. The consensus was that it's worthwhile to wait
   for the project to get traction a little longer.

* Completed migration to use HBase as data storage
* Updated documents for architecture, programming guide and quick start
guide.
* Preparing for Chukwa 0.5.0 release
* Migrated from ant build system to maven build system to reduce site
deployment overhead.

Chukwa depends on Apache Hadoop. More specifically, it requires a
stable version of Hadoop that supports append/sync. Since joining the
incubator, we have been unable to roll a release because these
requirements were not met. Now that there is a stable version of
Hadoop that supports the features we require, we expect to roll a
release presently, attract contributors, and set the project back on
track for graduation.

20 Apr 2011

Chukwa is a distributed log collection and processing system built on top of
Hadoop and HBase.  Chukwa is waiting for a official working release of
Hadoop 0.2x and HBase 0.9x.  There are certain API incompatibility in
metrics collection system to prevent them working together.  This is a
blocker for Chukwa 0.5 release.

Chukwa entered incubation on August 5th, 2010.

19 Jan 2011

Chukwa is a distributed log collection and processing system built on top of
Hadoop. Chukwa has migrated from relational database to Apache HBase 0.20.6
for data storage.  New aggregation script has been built using Apache Pig
0.8 and Apache HBase 0.20.6 combination.  Next steps are to begin
preparations for Chukwa 0.5 release.

17 Nov 2010

We're mostly marking time. We have a dependency on HBase, but their latest
version broke some things we rely on. Waiting for them to fix, (which they
are scheduled to do) pending a Chukwa release. People are still supplying
bug fix patches. We're also still adding documentation.

Chukwa is a distributed log collection and processing system built on top of
Hadoop. Jiaqi Tan has been voted to be a committer by Chukwa community.
Chukwa is transforming to use HBase for storing data to reduce data latency,
the existing data collection on Hadoop and map/reduce is still supported.

Chukwa entered incubation on August 5th, 2010.


= Empire-db =

Empire-db is a relational data persistence component that aims to overcome
the difficulties, pitfalls and restrictions inherent in traditional Object
Relational Management (ORM) approaches. Empire-db is on the Apache Incubator
since July 2008.

Issues to address in the move towards graduation:

We still have not tackled the fact that we need to do more advertising of
Empire-db on major development forums/sites/blogs.

Community development since the last report

New names pop up on the user list/jira which indicates a (slow) growth of
our user community.

Project development since the last report

We're trying to work towards a new release before the end of the year as
several issues have been fixed/new features have been implemented.

Chukwa is a distributed log collection and processing system built on top of
Hadoop.  It is a former Hadoop subproject. Bill Graham has officially granted
committer access.  Jiaqi Tan has accepted invitation of becoming Chukwa
commiter, and pending infrastructure to setup committer access.  Chukwa
mailing lists have been moved into incubator.apache.org.

Chukwa 0.5 is in the process of migrating data storage layer to HBase for
faster read/write random access.  Chukwa Agent has been improved with new
REST API for controlling Chukwa Agent operations.

Chukwa is a distributed log collection and processing system built on top of
Hadoop.  It is a former Hadoop subproject. CLAs are on file and ASF holds
all copyrights.  We have been in incubation since July 13, 2010.  Since
then, we have switched to incubation SVN naming and updated our website to
reflect this change.  We still need to move mailing lists to incubation.
[Pending on Bernd.] We still need to move our website to
incubator.apache.org [Pending on permissions].  Should bring onboard more
committers; Bill Graham would be the first Chukwa committer not originally
part of the project.
