Monitor Snaplexes and nodes

Snaplexes execute pipelines and are managed by SnapLogic or by your organization. A Snaplex has one or more instances, and each instance runs on a separate node. The System overview screen, available from the Infrastructure link in the Monitor navigation menu, displays information about Snaplexes and the nodes on which they run. The Metrics page contains more detailed graphs for a single node.

System overview

Open the System overview from the Infrastructure link in the navigation pane.

System overview

From the System overview page, you can:

  • Assess Snaplex status at a glance in the node map or list view.
  • Monitor CPU, memory, and disk usage per node and per Snaplex.
  • In the node map view, hover over a node to view average use for the selected metric.
  • Click a node to open details, including:
    • Metrics.
    • Associated executions.
    • Additional details such as IP address, maximum threads and file descriptors, and URI.

The Snaplex list view includes more details such as the version, CPU use, and memory use:

Node metrics

The Metrics screen, available from Metrics link in the Monitor navigation menu, displays charts for a Snaplex node. The charts reveal trends for key metrics. The Metrics reference page describes how the data in each chart is calculated.

Use the charts to:

  • Analyze the behavior of a Snaplex node.
  • Improve Task scheduling by finding under-utilized and over-utilized time periods.
  • Troubleshoot performance issues by identifying usage spikes.
  • View trends and individual data points.
  • Zoom in on charts to focus on a shorter time period.
  • Expand a chart to determine which pipelines ran during a specific time period and view the execution details.
  • Review Snap statistics, pipeline logs, and pipeline parameters.
  • Download files for:
    • Chart values in JSON format.
    • Pipeline logs in JSON format.
    • Runtime details in CSV format.
