The Snaplogic Monitor Metrics page displays key usage metrics for a Snaplex node over time. Open Metrics from the navigation menu. Select a node to display the metric charts:

Metric charts

The charts report the average value, maximum value and trends for the following metrics:

Chart Description
Total CPU utilization (%) Use of node CPU capacity over time by all processes running on the node. The percentage reflects active time compared to idle time.
Service CPU utilization (%) Use of the node CPU capacity by the Snaplex service. The percentage reflects the CPU time used by Snaplex service process compared with the total CPU time available.
System load (unit)

Only for nodes running on unix-based operating system. Not visible for nodes on Windows operating systems.

CPUs used in the last minute or 1-minute load average. This shows the immediate demand on CPUs.

For example, in a system with 4 virtual CPUs:

  • A load value of 4.0 means average full use of all CPUs without any idle time or queue.
  • A load value of >4.0 suggests that processes are waiting for CPU time
  • A value <4.0 indicates underutilization.
Service memory utilization (%) Heap space used by the Snaplex service. The percentage compares space used with the bytes allocated for the heap by the JVM.
Disk utilization (%) Disk mounts used by the node compared with those available.
File descriptor utilization (%) Node use of the maximum number of configured file descriptors as a percentage. On Linux, file descriptors are used to open files and make network connections. Pipelines executions can encounter errors if the maximum number of descriptors isn't sufficient.
Active threads (count) The current number of live threads in the JVM. This includes both daemon and non-daemon threads.
Active pipelines (count) The number of pipelines currently running on this node.
Network received (KB/sec) Data coming in to the node over the network measured in kilobytes per second,
Network sent (KB/sec) Data sent by the node over the network measured in kilobytes per second.

Chart controls

Hover over any chart to locate a specific time. The scale of charts depends on the time period you select:

  • For time periods of seven days or less, each data point represents the average value of that metric in one-minute intervals.
  • For time periods of more than seven days, each data point represents the average value of that metric over fifteen-minute intervals.

The default Metrics layout includes nine charts. Click the expand collapse control to maximize or minimize a chart:

You can also drag, select, and release to zoom in on a shorter period of time.

Add or remove a chart

Nine charts display in the default layout. The toolbar Add button is disabled until you remove a chart.

To remove a chart, click the ellipsis and select Remove chart.

To add a chart, click the toolbar Add button and select the chart to add.

View and download pipeline details and logs

To view details for a pipeline execution during a specific time period:

  1. Expand the chart of interest.
  2. Drag your cursor across the plot to select a time period. A table of pipeline executions displays.
  3. Click the download control to download the pipeline data in .csv format.
  4. To view more details, do one of the following:
    • Click Open in execution view.
    • Click a pipeline to open its execution details. Select the Pipeline logs tab to view and download logs.
