Monitoring On Linux

Steven Schneider shows how Microsoft’s SQLCAT monitors SQL Server on Linux:

The following solutions were tested:

  • Graphing with Grafana and Graphite
  • Collection with collectd and Telegraf
  • Storage with Graphite/Whisper and InfluxDB

We landed on a solution which uses InfluxDB, collectd and Grafana. InfluxDB gave us the performance and flexibility we needed, collectd is a light weight tool to collect system performance information, and Grafana is a rich and interactive tool for visualizing the data.
In the sections below, we will provide you with all the steps necessary to setup this same solution in your environment quickly and easily. Details include step-by-step setup and configuration instructions, along with a pointer to the complete GitHub project.

I’ve been a big fan of Grafana since Hortonworks introduced it as the primary monitoring tool in HDP 2.5. ¬†We use Grafana extensively for monitoring SQL on Windows and SQL on Linux.
