TuneIn: How to get your jobs tuned while sleeping

Have you ever tuned a Spark, Hive or Pig job? If yes, then you must know that it is a never ending cycle of executing the job, observing the running job, making sense out of hundreds of Spark/Hadoop metrics and then re-run it with the better parameters. Imagine doing this for tens of thousands of jobs. Manually doing performance optimization at this scale is tedious, requires significant expertis… more
