Grafana Dashboards

Overview

Lucidworks provides several Grafana dashboards designed for Fusion 5. See below for details and downloads. For instructions on importing Grafana dashboards, see Prometheus and Grafana Setup and Configuration.

Dashboards

Pipeline and Stage Metrics

Both the Indexing and Query service provide per-pipeline, per-stage execution times for the 99th, 95th, 75th, and 50th percentiles. These are commonly used to determine where there may be a performance bottleneck when pipelines are executing slowly.

Indexing Service Dashboard

The Indexing Service has its own Grafana dashboard, which highlights key performance metrics for understanding the behavior of the Fusion 5 Indexing pipelines. It provides per-pipeline and per-stage execution time metrics, along with metrics for document indexing.

Query Service Dashboard

The Query Service also has its own Grafana dashboard that shows the performance of the pipelines and query stages that are being run. It shows the global and per-pod request metrics, in addition to per-pipeline query stage execution times.

Gateway Metrics Dashboard

The Gateway Metrics provides visibility into the behavior of the API Gateway, which stands in front of Fusion 5 services. It includes global request rate gauge, in addition to per-handler and per-route request metrics. This dashboard can be used for locating service slowdowns, as it can highlight particular routes or handlers that are responding slowly.

JVM Metrics Dashboard

The JVM Metrics Dashboard provides information about the CPU and memory utilization of Fusion 5 services, along with some GC metrics. These can be used to assess the JVM performance of Fusion 5 microservices and may help locate bottlenecks, such as being CPU-pegged or hitting frequent garbage collection events that pause the application. Issues relating to garbage collection can often be solved by modifying the JVM options of the process and can then be monitored with this dashboard.

Solr Dashboards

Solr has its metrics split into three distinct dashboards, each covering a separate area of concern for monitoring Solr performance.

Core Dashboard

The Solr Core dashboard contains metrics by the associated Solr core, including per-core metrics for requests, file system utilization, document processing and access, and handler usage.

Node Dashboard

The Solr Node dashboard contains per-node metrics including information about requests, errors, cores, thread pool utilization, and connections. Per-node metrics are useful for tracking down issues with a particular Solr node, especially when these issues do not affect all nodes.

System Dashboard

The Solr System Dashboard shows high-level system stats, including requests/response statistics, JVM metrics, and common operating system metrics, such as memory usage, file descriptor usage, and cpu utilization.

Kube Metrics Dashboard

There are Kubernetes metrics that can be queried through Grafana. However, these require installing a daemonset when setting up Prometheus, which displays information about running pods, memory allocation, and CRON jobs.

Ensure that at least one namespace in your cluster uses the following configuration in the Prometheus values.yaml file for the stable/prometheus Helm chart.

kubeStateMetrics:
    enabled: true
