This page describes an older version of the product. The latest stable version is 14.0.

Application View


The Applications Module allow users to manage and monitor XAP applications. It offers a wide set of functionality from deployment to verification, monitoring and even log tracing.

The picture below explains the different parts composing the Applications module

Application Map

The application map is a graphical representation of the deployment plan (processing units, their SLA and their dependencies) It allow the user to compare the plan with the actual deployment in any given moment. the next sections give detailed explanation of the application map functionality

Overview

Understanding the processing unit display

The application map depicts a shape per each processing unit pu.jpg

It shows the deployment and dependencies between each processing unit, belonging to the chosen “application” from the drop-down menu. Processing units that were not deployed in the context of an application, will be shown under “Unassigned Services”.

Processing Unit dependencies

Dependencies between processing units are depicted by an arrow flowing in the direction of “depends on”. For example, in the screenshot below, the feeder depends on the Space to be alive.

For more information on processing unit dependencies, see Application deployment and processing unit dependencies

The Monitoring view

The monitoring view, allow the user to monitor the performance of a the selected processing unit. The displayed statistics are at the cluster level.

Understanding the widgets

metrics_explained.png

Stateful Processing Unit metrics:

In the case of backup spaces OS and VM metrics can be selected either for all instances of Processing Unit( Cluster ) or all instances without backups. The same with Processing Unit that has replication.

OS metrics

  • Memory
  • CPU

JVM metrics

  • Memory
  • CPU
  • GC

Space replication

  • Replication TP(bytes/sec)
  • Redo Log Size
  • Redo Log Memory Packets Count
  • Redo Log External Storage Packet Count
  • Redo Log External Storage Space Used

Total and average Space operation metrics are available for selection as well.

Space Troughput

  • Write per sec.
  • Read per sec.
  • Take per sec.
  • Update per sec.
  • Execute per sec.
  • Notify Ack per sec.
  • Notify Reg per sec.
  • Notify Trigger per sec.
  • Change per sec.

Space operations

  • Write
  • Read
  • Take
  • Update
  • Execute
  • Notify Ack
  • Notify Reg
  • Notify Trigger
  • Change

Mirror metrics:

OS metrics

  • Memory
  • CPU

JVM metrics

  • Memory
  • CPU
  • GC

Mirror

  • Failed operations count
  • Mirror Write per sec.
  • Mirror Update per sec.
  • Mirror Remove per sec.

The Infrastructure view

The infrastructure view allow the user to verify the application’s topology. It maps the processing unit instances to hosts, providing some basic information about each host. infra_explained.png

The Services view

The services view allow the user to get information at the processing unit instance level and to correlate performance of several selected instances.

Contextual Actions

The Logs view

The logs view allow the user to browse the application logs, filter or search them. logs_explained.png

Events time-line (per application)

The events time line is filtered per application chosen from the application drop-down menu. The events time-line shows the deployment life cycle of all the processing units belonging to this application.

For more information on the events displayed, see Events time-line tab in dashboard view

events_timeline_in_application.png

Events table (per application)

The events table is filtered per application chosen from the application drop-down menu. The events table shows the deployment life cycle of all the processing units belonging to this application.
