Configure and monitor event logs
To monitor Event Management System (EMS) logs, you can do the following high level tasks:
Configure monitoring in the Astra Data Store cluster custom resource (CR)
If the monitoring option has not been configured on the Astra Data Store cluster CR, you can set it up using
kubectl astrads monitoring setup -n <NAMESPACE OF AGENT INSTALLED> -r <DOCKER REPO TO FIND FLUENT/TELEGRAF ETC IMAGES>
Namespace of agent installed: Enter the namespace for the Monitoring agent, which is the default name of the monitoring-netapp CR for the Monitoring Operator.
-ris optional to set up the Docker registry where the Fluent or Telegraf images are located. By default, the path is set to
docker.repo.eng.netapp.com/global/astra, which you can change.
Set up Cloud Insights
To view the logs, setting up Cloud Insights is optional; however, it is helpful to view data using Cloud Insights.
See how to set up NetApp Cloud Insights for use with Astra Data Store.
Stream event logs to Elastic
To stream EMS events and other pod logs to a third-party endpoint such as Elastic, use the
kubectl astrads monitoring --host <ELASTIC HOST NAME> --port <ELASTIC HOST PORT> es
|The Elastic host name can be an IP address.|
