Apache Cassandra monitoring overview

See valuable Cassandra node metrics and find problematic nodes


Valuable Cassandra node metrics for each Cassandra process page are displayed on the Cassandra metrics tab.

The Exceptions and Failed requests charts show you if there’s a problem with the node. Pay particular attention to Unavailable Read/Write/RangeSlice counts. Increased latency while the number of operations remains stable typically indicates a performance issue.

For the full list of the provided Cassandra metrics please visit our detailed blog post about Cassandra monitoring.
