Monitoring object ingest and retrieval rates

You can monitor object ingest and retrieval rates as well as metrics for object counts, queries, and verification. You can view the number of successful and failed attempts by client applications to read, write, and modify objects in the StorageGRID Webscale system.

Steps

  1. Sign in to the Grid Manager using a supported browser.
  2. On the Dashboard, locate the Protocol Operations section.
    This section summarizes the number of client operations performed by your StorageGRID Webscale system. Protocol rates are averaged over the last two minutes.
  3. Select Nodes.
  4. From the Nodes home page (deployment level), click the Objects tab.
    The chart shows ingest and retrieve rates for your entire StorageGRID Webscale system in bytes per second and total bytes. You can select a time interval in hours, days, weeks, months, or years, or you can apply a custom interval.
  5. To see information for a particular Storage Node, select the node from the list on the left, and click the Objects tab.
    The chart shows the object ingest and retrieval rates for this Storage Node. The tab also includes metrics for object counts, queries, and verification. You can click the labels to see the definitions of these metrics.
