About This Book

This book describes several tools available for monitoring Caché.

The following chapters describe how to monitor Caché with tools included with Caché:

  • Monitoring Caché Using the Management Portal describes how to monitor the many metrics displayed on the System Dashboard of the Management Portal, which shows you the state of your Caché instance at a glance.

  • Using the Caché Diagnostic Report describes how to generate a Diagnostic Report and send it to the WRC.

  • Using Caché Monitor — Caché Monitor monitors the Caché console log for entries of the configured severity and generates a notification for each. These notifications are written to the alerts log by default but can instead be sent by email to specified recipients.

  • Using Caché System Monitor — Caché System Monitor is a flexible, user-extensible utility used to monitor a Caché instance and generate notifications when the values of one or more of a wide range of metrics indicate a potential problem. System Monitor includes a status and resource monitor, which samples important system status and resource usage indicators and generates notifications based on fixed statuses and thresholds; Caché Health Monitor, which samples key system and user-defined metrics and generates notifications based on user-configurable parameters and established normal values; and Caché Application Monitor, which samples significant system metrics, stores them in local namespace globals, and generates notifications based on user-created alert definitions. Alert notifications written to the console log by System Monitor and Health Monitor can be sent by email using Caché Monitor; Application Monitor alerts can be configured for email by the user.
