We are excited to announce that we’ve added support for debugging Amazon Elastic Map Reduce job flows within the AWS Management Console – making Amazon Elastic MapReduce even easier to use for developing large data processing and analytics applications. This capability allows customers to track progress and identify issues in steps, jobs, tasks, or task attempts of their job flows. The job flow logs are saved in Amazon S3 and the state of tasks and task attempts is saved in Amazon SimpleDB so customers can analyze job flows even after they’ve completed. This functionality is accessible through the Amazon Elastic MapReduce Tab in the AWS Management Console.
Access to the AWS Management Console is provided free of charge at https://console.aws.amazon.com.
