New in Monitoring 2.0
- Move to Prometheus version 2.3.2.
Scylla Monitoring stack 1.0 was based on Prometheus 1.x. Moving to Prometheus 2.x brings many improvements, mostly in the storage format. Note that Prometheus 2.x is not backward compatible with Prometheus 1.x, which can make the monitoring stack upgrade process more complex. More here.
- Support for Multi-cluster and multi-DC dashboards
The Prometheus target files contain mapping information to map nodes to their respective data centers (DCs) and clusters. You can then use Prometheus to filter charts on the dashboard for either the cluster or DC by choosing DC or Cluster from the drop-down multi-select buttons. This is very useful in cases where you are using one monitoring stack to monitor more than one cluster.
Example from prometheus/scylla_servers.yml, monitoring two clusters (cluster1, cluster2), the first with two DCs (dc1, dc2)
The same applies to prometheus/node_exporter_servers.yml, with node_exporter port (9100)
Note that the Monitoring stack uses the data provided in the target file (or service discovery), and not the Scylla cluster topology as presented in “nodetool status”. We plan to fix this gap in a future release. #139
- Identify nodes by their IP.
Node IPs are replacing hostname as node identifiers in all dashboards. This unifies the identifiers of Scylla and node_exporter(OS level) metrics. #244
- Support for Scylla Open Source 2.3.
Use start-all.sh -v 2.3 to start with Scylla 2.3 Grafana dashboards. You can use multiple dashboards at the same time, for example,
start-all.sh -v 2.2,2.3
The following dashboards are available:
- Scylla Overview Metrics 2.3
- Scylla CPU Per Server Metrics 2.3
- Scylla Per-Server Disk I/O 2.3
- Scylla Per Server Metrics 2.3
- Accept any instance name. Characters such as underscore and colon may be used for instance names for example, “127.0.0.1:9180” is a valid instance name. #351
