You can monitor your cluster’s state in real-time via a set of dashboards. They allow you to quickly identify and fix issues that impact the cluster’s health and performance. For example, you can review the status of your nodes, read and write latencies, throughput and storage, historical trends, memory, compactions, alerts about potential problems, and much more. You can drill down from high-level to detailed dashboards and display information by DC, node, or shard.
Click the Monitoring tab in your cluster’s view to access the dashboards and review the information for your cluster.
The monitoring information is kept for 45 days.
ScyllaDB clusters collect and report metrics regarding their workloads and health. By default, the metrics are sent to the ScyllaDB Cloud Prometheus server, where they are monitored by the ScyllaDB Cloud team. The most important subset of these metrics is available on the ScyllaDB Cloud monitoring page in the ScyllaDB Cloud web UI.
In addition, you can use a Prometheus proxy to access your cluster metrics outside of the ScyllaDB Cloud service and monitor them with another tool. A Prometheus proxy allows you to extract data to an external third-party tool that reads the Prometheus format, such as Datadog.
See Extract Cluster Metrics in Prometheus Format for instructions how to extract your cluster metrics in the Prometheus format.
ScyllaDB Cloud’s monitoring dashboards are consistent with the ScyllaDB Monitoring stack for cluster monitoring and alerting. See the following resources to learn more about the ScyllaDB Monitoring stack:
