DataStax Enterprise Metrics Collector

DSE Metrics Collector aggregates DSE metrics and integrates with centralized monitoring solutions to facilitate problem resolution and remediation.

Available in DSE 6.0.5 and later, DSE Metrics Collector aggregates DataStax Enterprise (DSE) metrics and integrates with existing monitoring solutions to facilitate problem resolution and remediation.

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

When DSE Metrics Collector is enabled, metrics and other structured events are sent to DSE Metrics Collector. Use dsetool insights_config to enable and configure the frequency and type of metrics that are sent to DSE Metrics Collector. After setting the configuration properties, you can export the aggregated metrics to tools like Prometheus, Graphite, and Splunk, which can then be visualized in a dashboard such as Grafana.
