Database Monitoring

About NuoDB Insights

NuoDB Insights is a visual monitoring tool which displays database and system resource health, for a specific time period, using a web-based dashboard. The graphical user interface includes an easy-to-use historical drill-down function that enables review of database performance activity and system resource metrics to help better understand the overall health of a NuoDB distributed database. The information can be used to verify performance results (for example, SQL transactions per second) or make decisions about how to troubleshoot and optimize your NuoDB database, its processes, and its associated resources.

NuoDB Insights offers the following functionality:

  • Improved views into database lifecycle events
    Track when you’ve started or stopped processes and examine the database domain.

  • Greater understanding of system resources and networking usage
    Assess CPU, memory, disk, and networking usages.

  • Enhanced database performance monitoring
    Analyze response times and SQL workload rates.

About NuoDB Collector

NuoDB Collector is a flexible daemon process that runs in the background on one or more nodes that collects time-series metrics data and event data (in real time). The collected data is then available for presentation graphically using NuoDB Insights. NuoDB Collector is flexible enough to collect data from multiple input sources. Examples of some inputs are:

  • NuoDB Admin domain/database/process monitoring

  • NuoDB Engine (Storage Manager/Transaction Engine) statistics

  • System statistics

  • Application transactions per second (TPS) workload statistics
