Contributors

When troubleshooting an issue, you can work with technical support to review detailed metrics and charts for your StorageGRID system.

Before you begin
  • You must be signed in to the Grid Manager using a supported web browser.

  • You must have specific access permissions.

About this task

The Metrics page allows you to access the Prometheus and Grafana user interfaces. Prometheus is open-source software for collecting metrics. Grafana is open-source software for metrics visualization.

Important The tools available on the Metrics page are intended for use by technical support. Some features and menu items within these tools are intentionally non-functional and are subject to change. See the list of commonly used Prometheus metrics.
Steps
  1. As directed by technical support, select SUPPORT > Tools > Metrics.
