Using MBeans to evaluate DSE Search performance

Example steps to use the MBeans to obtain information about performance on a DSE Search node.

Use JConsole to view JMX metrics and operations exposed by DSE.

To use the MBeans to obtain information about performance on a DSE Search node:

Procedure

  1. Start a single DSE Search node.
  2. Find the process ID (PID) of the DSE Search node:
    pgrep -f dse
    368
    668
    45706
  3. Verify the PID of the DSE Search node:
    pgrep -f cassandra 45706

    where 45706 is the correct PID for DSE and Cassandra.

  4. Start JConsole using the PID of the DSE Search node:
    jconsole 45706
  5. In JConsole, connect to a DSE Search node. For example, connect to the Local Process com.datastax.bdp.DseModule.
