Using MBeans to evaluate DSE Search performance

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:


  1. Start a single DSE Search node.

  2. Find the process ID (PID) of the DSE Search node:

    pgrep -f dse
  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.


For visibility into native memory allocation through the solr/NativeAllocatorStats MBean, see Solr MBeans.
