Hi Lian Jiang,

Ganglia has been deprecated since Ambari 2.0. Instead the Ambari Metrics system 
provides the monitoring capabilities now. What you need to install is the 
components on AMS (METRICS_COLLECTOR, METRICS_MONITOR[all_hosts],

Thanks Aman. I have already been using sudo when start ambari server and ambari 

 looks like nagios and ganglia are deprecated for ambari. Let me know if I 
misunderstood anything. Thanks.

Ambari is not running as root so ambari user doesnot have the user creation 
permission. So best way is either run it as root or change the default user of 
GANGLIA to a user which is already present on the system.

I tried to install ganglia-server using blueprint like:

          "name" : "SECONDARY_NAMENODE"

          "name" : "OOZIE_SERVER"
          "name" : "ZEPPELIN_MASTER"
          "name" : "GANGLIA_SERVER"
      "cardinality" : "1"

However, it failed due to:

 resource_management.core.exceptions.Fail: User 'apache' doesn't exist.

The complete log file is attached. I don't understand why ambari cannot create 
whatever it need to make the work done. Without GANGLIA_SERVER, the blueprint 
can successfully create a hadoop cluster.

I am using horton ambari 2.6.4.

Appreciate any clue. Thanks.
