Blackbird’s own Chris Lohfink was on-hand at the Minneapolis Cassandra Meetup, on May 5th, to give a lightning talk introducing Cassandra’s thread pool metrics. Monitoring Cassandra clusters can be a monumental task, but Chris’s overview provides a nice start to understanding, and ultimately capturing the right metrics to provide insight into the health of a Cassandra ring.
In his talk, Chris talks about
- The internal Cassandra messaging system
- How to access Cassandra metrics
- Examples of the causes of some stages to have issues
