Apache Cassandra Insight Pack

Posted: August 2, 2016 Modified: August 2, 2016


Overview

The Apache Cassandra Insight Pack gives customers support to ingest data from various Apache Cassandra logs into IBM Operations Analytics – Log Analysis. They can then use a rich set of analytical dashboards to visualize metadata and derived metrics from log content, along with performing additional queries on the content.

The dynamic dashboards provided with the Apache Cassandra Insight Pack help in visualizing the data which is available through Apache Cassandra logs. You can view the dashboards at a later time from the Search Dashboards pane.

Additional information

The Insight Pack includes support for ingesting and performing metadata searches against the Apache Cassandra System Log: system.log.

Note: By default, Apache Cassandra also generates Debug Log Files (debug.log). These logs have all log records as in system log and additional debug log level log records. The insight pack supports both logs for ingesting and analyzing.
