Information you should monitor regularly

You should monitor the StorageGRID system’s key attributes and metrics regularly. Becoming familiar with system operations can help you spot trends before they turn into problems.

The following table lists the tasks you should perform on a regular basis.

Task Frequency
Monitor system status. Note what has changed from the previous day. Daily
Monitor the rate at which Storage Node capacity is being consumed. Weekly
Check the capacity of the external archival storage system. Weekly
The important items to monitor relate to:
When monitoring capacity, look at the absolute value and at the rate at which capacity is being consumed over time. Consumption rates can help you estimate when additional capacity might be required.
Note: The attributes and metrics used for storage capacity and metadata storage capacity do not include the capacity used for archived content.
