ScyllaDB Monitoring Stack Release Notes

The ScyllaDB team is pleased to announce the release of ScyllaDB Monitoring Stack 3.0.1.

ScyllaDB Monitoring Stack is an open-source stack for monitoring ScyllaDB Enterprise and ScyllaDB Open Source, based on Prometheus and Grafana. ScyllaDB Monitoring Stack 3.0 supports:

  • ScyllaDB Open Source versions 2.3, 3.0 and 3.1
  • ScyllaDB Enterprise versions 2018.x and 2019.x
  • ScyllaDB Manager 1.4.x

ScyllaDB Monitoring 3.0.1 adds support for ScyllaDB’s new Amazon DynamoDB compatible API (Project Alternator). To use the new Alternator dashboard:

  1. Upgrade ScyllaDB Monitoring Stack to version 3.0.1
  2. Run start_all.sh with -v master option (Alternator is not part of a formal ScyllaDB release yet).

ScyllaDB Monitoring 3.0.1 does not fix or add any other functionality to 3.0 beyond the new dashboard.
