Cassandra monitoring API
Our Cassandra Monitoring API enables access to Apache Cassandra performance metrics, such as: CPU utilization, disk utilization, reads and write, latency tasks, pending compactions, live cells and tombstones per read, sstable, task statistics of thread pool and more. The Instaclustr Console also delivers a visual view of these metrics as part of our monitoring dashboard.
Get started in minutes
For all Apache Cassandra clusters and nodes managed through the Instaclustr Managed Platform you can get started with monitoring your Cassandra database within just a few minutes of creating your cluster from a centralised console. All metrics data can be viewed on a per node basis or for all nodes in a cluster to help you diagnose issue and plan capacity. All available metrics are updated every 20 seconds.
The metric information viewable on our monitoring dashboard is available as part of our console once you authenticate the monitoring API.

Advantages of Monitoring Tool
Understand immediately when your Cassandra instance is not performing as expected.
Identify the root cause of any problem your database may be experiencing fix it fast.
Save time digging through and analyzing multiple reports to understand your metrics.
View the summary of key metrics to understand the health of your cluster at a glance.
Get a tabular view of key metrics which is great for understanding relatively static information (for example, tombstones per read over the last 5 minutes)
Metrics Graphs View
A graphical view of metric values over time – ideal for pinpointing the time when there was a sudden change in a metric value or identifying trends over time.
Cluster Health Check
Instaclustr’s Cluster Health check exposes a number of indicators to help you understand your cluster’s long term performance. There are three potential states for each indicator:
- Green represents a healthy state;
- Amber represents a warning state; and
- Red represents failed state.
Instaclustr’s monitoring API is designed to allow you to integrate the monitoring information from your Instaclustr managed cluster with external monitoring tools such as DataDog or Prometheus so you can easily construct a single monitoring view of your application stack.
