New in ScyllaDB Advisor

(Learn more about ScyllaDB Advisor here.)

  • Warn when more than 1% requests are shed – the requests that were shed due to overload (threshold configured via max_concurrent_requests_per_shard)
  • Warn when compaction overuses the CPU — A situation that can happen if the ScyllaDB scheduler changes the background compaction process’s priority.

New Information in ScyllaDB Dashboards

  • Add annotations for repair based ops (RBNO). In ScyllaDB 4.6, RBNO is enabled by default only for replacing node operation #1622

  • Detail dashboard enhancements:
    • Add shed requests panel #1619

    • Add tombstone section #1618

    • Add graph for prepared statements cache #1615

  • CQL Dashboard
    • Add the number of partition range queries without BYPASS CACHE #1613

A partition range is mostly used to scan a full table. In most cases, it does not make sense to cache these scans, since it will quickly fill up the cache with partitions.

    • Cross DC Information – Explained #1571

  • Keyspace Dashboard:
    • Link to enable metrics #1560
  • Alert tab
    Grafana 8.3 has the centralized Alerting on by default, which means  that  you can have an overview of the alerts directly from the Grafana dashboards by switching to the Alert tab

Bug Fixes

  • -v: binary operator expected #1591
  • Write latencies missing shard id bug #1562
  • fails in master branch when called without -v without proper warning #1569

Operational Changes

  • systemd service to keep monitoring running even after reboot #1564
