This session walks devs through Instaclustr’s Cassandra tools and how they add key functionality and ease-of-use to their deployments.
-An LDAP authenticator plug-in for Cassandran. The open source LDAP authenticator plug-in works closely with the existing CassandraAuthorizer implementation. The plug-in enables developers to quickly reap the benefits of secure LDAP authentication without the need to write their own solutions, and to transition to using the authenticator with zero downtime.
-A Kerberos authenticator plug-in for CassandranThe open source Kerberos authenticator plug-in enables Cassandra users to leverage Kerberos’ industry-leading secure authentication and true single sign-on capabilities. The open source project also includes a Kerberos authenticator plugin for the Cassandra Java driver.
– Cassandra Prometheus Exporter. The cassandra-exporter is a high-performance metrics collection agent that allows for easy integration with the Prometheus monitoring solution. It has been designed to collect detailed metrics on production-sized clusters with complex schemata with minimal performance impact while at the same time following Prometheus’s best practices for exporting metrics.
