With the AWS Management Console, developers can easily launch Elastic MapReduce job flows and monitor their progress. You can create as many job flows as you’d like by filling out a simple wizard. You can monitor job flow status as it progresses through execution stages, and, if required, terminate it with a single mouse click. Using our search interface you can view up to two weeks of job flow history.
