What is Apache Cassandra?
Apache Cassandra is a free and open-source distributed database management system designed to handle large amounts of data across many commodity servers, providing high availability with no single point of failure.

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.
