App-centric Apache Cassandra performance monitoring
Dynatrace auto-detects your Cassandra databases and shows key metrics to them.
When problems occur, Dynatrace shows you which nodes are affected.
Drill down to the metrics of individual nodes to find the root cause of problems and potential bottlenecks.
In under five minutes, Dynatrace detects your Cassandra databases and shows metrics like CPU, connectivity, retransmissions, suspension and garbage collection time.
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.
On the Further details tab Dynatrace shows you additional Cassandra performance metrics related to:
When enabled globally, Dynatrace automatically collects Cassandra metrics whenever a new host running Cassandra is detected in your environment.
“We’re intrigued by its capability to work almost out of the box as well as being able to monitor system aspects as well as application performance and user experience.”
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.
