Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-4735) Improve Solr metrics reporting
Date Fri, 02 Dec 2016 22:44:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-4735?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15716772#comment-15716772

Jeff Wartes commented on SOLR-4735:
-----------------------------------

That seems pretty viable too. As I mentioned, the memory overhead of a registry is pretty
low, just a concurrent map and a list. Plus, the actual metric objects in the map would be
shared by both registries, so I'd be more concerned about the work involved keeping them synchronized
then with just having multiple registries.

I confess though, I don't have a clear idea whether that's more or less overhead than multiple
identically-configured reporters. It feels like most of the possible performance issues here
are linear, so it may not matter. Two reporters iterating through 10 metrics each sounds pretty
much the same as one reporter iterating over 20 to me, all else being equal.

> Following on from a discussion on the mailing list:

> It would be good to make Solr play more nicely with existing devops monitoring systems,
such as Graphite or Ganglia.  Stats monitoring at the moment is poll-only, either via JMX
or through the admin stats page.  I'd like to refactor things a bit to make this more pluggable.
> This patch is a start.  It adds a new interface, InstrumentedBean, which extends SolrInfoMBean
to return a [[Metrics|http://metrics.codahale.com/manual/core/]] MetricRegistry, and a couple
of MetricReporters (which basically just duplicate the JMX and admin page reporting that's
there at the moment, but which should be more extensible).  The patch includes a change to
RequestHandlerBase showing how this could work.  The idea would be to eventually replace the
getStatistics() call on SolrInfoMBean with this instead.
> The next step would be to allow more MetricReporters to be defined in solrconfig.xml.
 The Metrics library comes with ganglia and graphite reporting modules, and we can add contrib
plugins for both of those.
> There's some more general cleanup that could be done around SolrInfoMBean (we've got
two plugin handlers at /mbeans and /plugins that basically do the same thing, and the beans
themselves have some weirdly inconsistent data on them - getVersion() returns different things
for different impls, and getSource() seems pretty useless), but maybe that's for another issue.
