Cloudify’s Grafana Based Metrics Visualization
Cloudify’s Monitoring Implementation uses Grafana for tracking system metrics. The monitoring section can be found on each deployment’s page in the user interface:
Once you open the monitoring section you can find a default dashboard with six graphs. You can also customize your dashboard however you want and save it on a JSON file or in your browser’s local storage.
The default dashboard is a set of graphs that Cloudify will initialize if a dashboard doesn’t already exist. The presented common system metrics are a good start from which you can further customize your dashboard. The default dashboard includes the following metrics:
The Default dashboard will display metrics only if the blueprint is configured to ship metrics corresponding with the default dashboard’s configured view.
