Monitor cluster metrics with DSE Metrics Collector

Use DSE Metrics Collector to aggregate DSE metrics and integrate with centralized monitoring solutions to help you resolve and remediate problems.

Available in DSE 5.1.14 and later, DSE Metrics Collector aggregates DataStax Enterprise (DSE) metrics and integrates with existing monitoring to help you resolve and remediate problems.

DSE Metrics Collector is built on collectd, a well-supported, open source metric collection agent. With more than 90 plugins, you can tailor the metric collection agent to collect metrics most important to your organization.
