Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4430) optional pluggable o.a.c.metrics reporters
Date Tue, 19 Mar 2013 02:27:15 GMT


Chris Burroughs commented on CASSANDRA-4430:

bq.  Can you clarify which stats you're referring to? I didn't think we were exposing any
metrics on a per-connection basis.

See the per connection ones in ; fox example per
IP ones in StreamingMetrics
I just mean that as an example of something that generates too much noise to be a good out
of the box experience.

bq.   Is the csv reporter just no good, or am I missing something here?

The csv reporter is probably not used in production much.  I'm not exactly sure what is going
on when trying to use it here, but I agree it's producing a paucity of metrics.

bq. Regarding whitelisting/blacklisting, is the regex applied to the full metric name (e.g.

Currently only the "name" part of MetricName (so "LiveSSTableCount" not "org.apache.cassandra.metrics.ColumnFamily.LiveSSTableCount.system.IndexInfo")
is used.  However, that's a metric-reporter-config limitation, not a Metrics one, and could
be changed.  a.o.c.metrics has a rather sophisticated naming scheme and I'm not sure how best
to keep it simple.

> CASSANDRA-4009  expanded the use of the metrics library which has a set of reporter modules  You can report to flat files, ganglia,
spit everything over http, etc.  The next step is a mechanism for using those reporters with
 o.a.c.metrics.  To avoid bundling everything I suggest following the mx4j approach of "enable
only if on classpath coupled with a reporter configuration file.
