Improve Apache Cassandra observability
Dynatrace automatically detects all applications and microservices deployed in your system and how it uses your database. It provides automatic end-to-end tracing down to a single database statement, database server metrics and log insights. Dynatrace visualizes application to database dependencies for SQL and noSQL databases as well as for cloud databases and self-hosted databases. It also diagnoses anomalies in real-time using AI and pinpoints the root cause down to the slow performing or erroneous SQL statements. Deep code-level insights combined with cloud-native database server monitoring will help you maintain a robust production environment.
Get started for Apache Cassandra database clients:
If your client application runs on a virtual machine or bare-metal, install OneAgent on it to get started.
If your client application runs as a workload in Kubernetes or OpenShift, set up Dynatrace on Kubernetes or OpenShift.
Activate the following OneAgent features to get tracing insight:
Activate log monitoring to get log insight.
Get started for Apache Cassandra database servers:
If your database server runs on a virtual machine or bare-metal, install OneAgent on it to get started.
Activate the Cassandra JMX extension to get insight into database server's health and performance combined with metrics and events. Click on Add to envrionment.
Activate log monitoring to get full log insight.
The Apache Cassandra JMX server monitoring extension in Dynatrace provides information about database exceptions, failed requests, performance, and more. If Cassandra is underperforming or a problem occurs, Dynatrace lets you know immediately and shows you which nodes are affected.
This is a JMX (Java Management Extension) Dynatrace extension. JMX is ideal for monitoring applications built using Java. Make sure you are monitoring your Cassandra process as the extension does not support gathering metrics from the client-side.
Click on Add to environment to get started.
The dashboard Cassandra JMX Overview will be included in the extension, where you can see an overview of your Cassandra JXM metrics.
Additionally, all metrics captured by the extension will be appended to the process group instance unified analysis screen in three new sections: Exceptions, Usage and Thread Pool. Make sure to be on the new screen for process group instances to see them.
All metrics can also be viewed with the data explorer.
The extension consumes DDU Units. However, they are elgible for the free tier included with every host.
The amount of DDUs units depends on the number of instances monitored.
Below is a complete list of the feature sets provided in this version. To ensure a good fit for your needs, individual metrics can be activated and deactivated by your administrator during configuration.
