Monitoring Dashboard

The Monitoring Dashboard allows users to view both high and low-level components' performance through easy-to-read metrics. The dashboard is designed to enable the user to use a focused approach when analyzing data performance. For example, the Monitoring Dashboard allows performance monitoring at the cluster level and can be configured to focus on a single Application Instance for a more detailed view. The Monitoring Dashboard allows a comprehensive view of Clusters and the associated Application Instances, giving the user a picture of its overall performance.

Data and analytics are displayed accordingly, contingent on your preset filters. Depending on roles assigned (RBAC), not all features and options may be available for monitoring. For more information about RBAC, see Assign role-baed access control (RBAC)

Kubernetes and Docker container type deployments may be monitored with the dashboard. While you may filter by App Inst, Cluster Inst, and Cloudlet, the data and metrics rendered are specific to your organizations rather than by application or cluster. Therefore, when filtering these options, you can view clusters and application instances deployed globally within your organization.

The Monitoring Dashboard provides access to the following information types. Metric information is presented as tiles. Each tile can be enlarged to view the graphical representation for each metric type.

  • Cluster level resource utilization, performance, and status metrics
  • Load balancer (Layer 4) metrics and status
  • Application Instance resource utilization, performance, and status metrics
  • Application Instance event logs, showing state changes and other Application Instance events
  • Distributed Matching Engine (DME) metrics, including location-based metrics for remote users
  • Cloudlet level information including regions, operator, disk and memory usage, and more.

When the monitoring page is first launched, by default, metrics are displayed for App instances only. From this view, administrators can navigate effortlessly to the desired option and switch the view to either Cluster Instance or Cloudlet. Please note, only administrators have full monitoring capability.

You can filter using the following options:

  • Organization
  • Time Ranges
  • App Inst, Cluster Inst, or Cloudlet
  • Region
  • Metric Type (CPU, Memory, Disk Usage, Network Sent, Network Received, Active Connections)

You may also refresh your data and specify the refresh rate by seconds, minutes, or hours automatically. A progress bar is positioned at the top of the page and serves as an indication of progress.

Map view

The Map view within the monitoring page displays cloudlets and their locations where your app instances are deployed. The map view changes as you filter by region (US or EU). You may also filter the Map view page by regions.

Event information can also be viewed from the Monitoring page. For more information about the different events, see Event Logs.
