Managing Service Pools

A Service is an entity that an application developer works with to build stream apps. Examples of services include a Storm cluster to which you want to deploy the stream application, a Kafka cluster that stream application uses to create a streams, or an HBase cluster to which the stream application writes.

A Service Pool is a set of services associated with an Ambari managed cluster. To manage service pools, hover over the Configuration tab and select the Service Pool menu item.

The Service Pool dashboard lists all existing service pools, and allows you to create new service pools.
