PubSub+ Insights Advanced Monitoring

PubSub+ Insights provides you with the ability to see historical and real-time metrics in the PubSub+ Cloud Console for your event broker services and to access logs. With Insights, you can also optionally enable Advanced Monitoring for your users, which gives you access to a separate Datadog account and PubSub+ Insights dashboards for Datadog.

The separate Datadog account is provided as part of your PubSub+ Insights subscription but currently doesn't support single-sign on (SSO). The PubSub+ Insights dashboards included with your PubSub+ Insights subscription are in addition to the ones that you see in the Cloud Console. It's important to note that the dashboard in the Cloud Console is a subset of metrics that are available with Advanced Monitoring.

To access the rich set of real-time metrics, historical information, and logs, you must have the Insights Advanced Viewer or the Insights Advanced Editor role assigned to your user profile. For more information, see Enabling PubSub+ Insights Advanced Monitoring.

When you use Advanced Monitoring, you can see PubSub+ Insights dashboards provided by Solace. Here's an example of the Estate Overview dashboard:

The various PubSub+ Insights dashboards for Datadog show you the most relevant information to manage your event broker services and allow you to closely monitor different aspects of your event-driven architecture. The information provided on the dashboards are based on Solace's best practices from working with event broker services.

You can use the PubSub+ Insights dashboards as is, but based on your monitoring needs, you can also create your own PubSub+ Insights dashboards in Datadog. You can even choose to use a mix of predefined dashboards and custom dashboards to monitor your estate. An estate refers to your deployment of event broker services, the messaging and activities that occur, and any capabilities that are part of your account for PubSub+ Cloud (Workspace).

Viewing and accessing the PubSub+ Insights dashboards in Datadog has these advantages:

  • The dashboard in the Cloud Console is specific to an event broker service; using PubSub+ Insights dashboards, you can get a view of all of the event broker services in your account (Workspace) while still having the flexibility to navigate to see information for a single event broker service.
  • The dashboard in the Cloud Console can't be customized; but usingPubSub+ Insights dashboards for Datadog , you can clone any of PubSub+ Insights dashboards that Solace provides. You can customize these cloned dashboards, mix and match information to create your own dashboards that better pertain to your monitoring requirements. When you build your own dashboard, it's important to understand that you have access to hundreds of metrics and many PubSub+ Insights monitors for Datadog that come with PubSub+ Insights. You also have access to all the rich data that's collected from the event broker service for your deployment of PubSub+ Cloud.
  • The metrics available from Advanced Monitoring give you a more granular-level view of the data. This view can provide a more in-depth understanding on how you are using the event broker services in your estate, understand capacity requirements, and accurately troubleshoot issues.
  • In addition to the advanced monitors and metrics, you can view logs and raw data collected from the event broker services. This gives you a way to explore your historical data, investigate anomalies, and troubleshoot.

The PubSub+ Insights dashboards for Datadog use a mix of metrics, Datadog widgets, and PubSub+ Insights monitors to present information so that you can understand different aspects of your estate. The PubSub+ Insights dashboards and monitors that Solace provides in Datadog contain information that's useful for a number of core monitoring requirements, but generally falls under these two types of categories:

Operations (or Ops) and Integration
For these use cases, the teams are interested in getting a summary of information that gives an overview of how the estate is operating. For most Ops and Integration teams, there are key metrics and monitors used to quickly identify critical areas that require attention.
Applications Support
Applications Support teams, use the same information as Ops and Integration teams and may find it useful to identify how events flow in their event-driven architecture (EDA). Generally, these teams are interested in a finer-grained level of information to better understand and characterize performance functionality in their applications. Generally, for Applications Support teams, this information is useful to identify any implementation-specific issues or troubleshoot their application.

These dashboards are available to you when you access the Datadog account created for you as part of your Insights subscription and if the user profile PubSub+ Cloud has been assigned the Insights Advanced Viewer or the Insights Advanced Editor role.

The PubSub+ Insights dashboards for Datadog have a collection of monitors and metrics grouped together on a page. You can use these PubSub+ Insights dashboards to understand your estate, but you cannot modify them. If you require a customized dashboard, we recommend that you clone one of the PubSub+ Insights dashboards of your choice and use it as at starting point for your own dashboard.

Common Information about Advanced Monitoring PubSub+ Insights Dashboards for Datadog

The PubSub+ Insights dashboards for Datadog that Solace provides for advanced monitoring have a collection of monitors and metrics grouped together on a page which each dashboard sharing similar characteristics that you should be familiar with so that:

  • you easily interpret them and best use the dashboard
  • you can navigate from one dashboard to another and be able to interpret, explore, and use the dashboard

For specific detailed information about what's available for each dashboard, see Understanding PubSub+ Insights Dashboards for Advanced Monitoring .

Here's a summary of common aspects for each PubSub+ Insights dashboards:

  1. Title of the board—The name of the board that gives you an understanding of the theme and purpose of the dashboard. You can click the name to see a quick overview of the dashboard.
  2. Saved ViewsViews permit you save filters you've set to bring up filter data again. For more information, see "Saved views" on the Template Variables page in the Datadog documentation.
  3. Data Filters—Use these to filter your data based on the event broker service name or other information (such as queue name). For more information, see Data filters.
  4. Metrics—The metrics in the dashboard. Ones near the top are considered high interest based on the theme of the dashboard.
  5. Brief description—A short description of the dashboard and notable metrics that is commonly interesting to variety of customers. For a detailed description of the dashboard, see, Understanding PubSub+ Insights Dashboards for Advanced Monitoring .
  6. Time Filters—You can filter and traverse through historical data based on a selected time interval of interest. You can also reference the field to determine the time zone of the information you're viewing: UTC (Universal Coordinated Time) appears above the field if data is in the UTC time zone, otherwise the information is in your default time zone. For more information, see Time filters
  7. Monitor Summary widgets—Datadog widgets that list information about monitors.
  8. Sections—Each dashboard is organized as multiple sections to logically group widgets and their information together.

These are the common characteristics of each dashboard that you should familiarize yourself with to assist with monitoring your estate:

Color-coded Warnings and Alerts
The metrics and monitors are color-coded in a manner to give you a quick understanding of what's occurring in your estate. For more information, see Understanding the Color Codes.
Filtering
On each dashboard the metrics, charts, and tables can be filtered using the data filter and time filter. When you select a time interval or specify a data filter, all widgets utilize the selected filters. For more information about using filtering, see Data and Time Filters.
Interacting with the widgets (or objects) to further explore metric and monitor details
Each object on the dashboard can be expanded or selected to see more context or open other sections. When you interact with a widget, it allows you to see different and deeper levels of detail. The levels of detail permit you to explore the data and perform more in-depth analysis. For more information, see Interacting with the Dashboard.

Understanding the Color Codes

On the PubSub+ Insights dashboards for Datadog, we use consistent color coding to provide you with visual cues to the various states of metrics and monitors. The colors are associated to the severity of various thresholds that are monitored or tracked via the Monitor Summary widgets for metrics on the dashboards. Here's how the colors are generally used in the metrics, exceptions will be noted in the description of the metric:

  • Red is associated with the Alert  severity level and is deemed critical and potentially service impacting or near-service impacting. In most cases, metrics show this when 95% of a threshold is reached.
  • Yellow is associated with the Warn severity level and is deemed something that may require your attention. For thresholds, this is the 80% threshold for monitoring metrics. In most cases, metrics show this when 80% of a threshold is reached.
  • Green is associated with the OK severity level. It indicates that event broker services are running as expected and that the Warn or Alert severity levels have not been triggered. In all cases, green indicates that things are operating as expected and within the set parameters.
  • Grey indicates that there is no data available or has been available in a period of time. It can also indicate that the metric or monitor is not applicable for the selected time interval.

Data and Time Filters

There are data and time filters available on the dashboards that include filtering based on the name of the event broker service and time intervals. By default all dashboards can be filtered by the event broker service name denoted by the $service_name located at the top-left of the dashboard and the date-range filter on the top-right of your dashboard. If no event broker service is selected, the metrics that are shown reflect all services in your account.

Data filters

Each page has the $service_name template variable that permits you to filter the data and metrics based on the name of the event broker service. The filtering you do is useful to refine the data on the selected interval and show metrics and monitoring information on specific criteria. All widgets on a dashboard are associated with this template variable, so as you use the data filter, the values on the widgets change to reflect what you have selected.

By default, no filtering is done on the dashboard because (*) is selected. Some dashboards have other predefined data filters available, such as the $queue_name filter. You can use a combination of filters to further refine and perform multi-level filtering of the information that is shown on the dashboard. For example, if you wanted to show information for a particular event broker service and queue, you could use the $service_name and $queue_name to filter the data shown to perform a useful analysis on a particular queue.

The following list summarizes the predefined filters provided on the PubSub+ Insights dashboards for DatadogPubSub+ Insights.

 
$service_name
This filter is available on all PubSub+ Insights dashboards and allows you to filter the information shown based on the name of the event broker service in your estate. The name of event broker service is what you had provided when you created it in Cluster Manager.
Sbridge_name
This filter is available on the Bridges Overview dashboard and is based on the name of the Message VPN bridge in your estate.
Squeue_name
This filter is available on the Queues Overview dashboard and is based on the name of the queue in your estate.
Srdp_name
This filter is available on the REST Delivery Point (RDP) Overview dashboard and is based on the name of the REST Destination Point (RDP) in your estate.

Time filters

You have the ability to view historical data and even see how the data changes on your dashboard over a selected interval of time based on the logs retained in Datadog. Logs are by default kept for 30 days . You can contact Solace to request an extension of up to 90 days.

This uses the Global Time Selector widget from the Datadog screenboard. Here's what's provided to you:

Time Interval drop-down

At the top-right of the dashboard, the date range permits you decide how to filter the time based on the selected time interval. Based on the selected interval, you can use the Rewind button and Forward button to view the historical data based on the selected time interval that you selected. This capability is useful to see how metrics and monitors change to let you analyze changes to your estate.
The time intervals are as follows:
  • Past 5, 15, 30 minutes
  • Past 1 or 4 hours
  • Past 1 or 2 days
  • Past week
  • Past 1 month
  • Custom views
Time Interval Navigation
Beside the time range are the following buttons that permit to you browse and traverse the data using the selected time interval. Pressing the following various buttons lets you change the data shown on the dashboard:
  • back icon (Back): Scroll back to the previous time interval and refresh the dashboard with that information.
  • (Pause) or play icon (Play): You can pause the metrics to pause the real-time updating of the information on the dashboard. After you pause the metrics, the button changes to Play play icon, which allows you to resume updating of information on the dashboard.
  • forward icon (Forward): Scroll forward by interval up to the present interval. This button is available only if there are time intervals to which to forward.
  • refresh icon (Search/Refresh): Searches for metrics in the time interval and actively refreshes the dashboard.
Time Interval Time Zone
By default, the times shown by the various visualizations on your dashboards will be based on your browser time zone. Your browser time zone is the determined by your system time zone, which itself set based on your geographic location. In Datadog you can switch a dashboard to display the time in UTC (Universal Coordinated Time) instead of the default browser time zone. To do that click the gear icon icon in the top right corner of the screen and select one of the following options (the option available will be the opposite of the time zone currently displayed):
  • Display default timezone
  • Display UTC time
The dashboard will refresh updating the various visualizations with the selected time zone. When the UTC time zone is selected, 'UTC' will appear above the Time Interval Drop-down field. When viewing your default time zone, no indicator appears.

You can change the default browser time zone in Datadog using the Personal Settings screen . Access your Personal Settings by clicking on your user name, located in the bottom left corner of the Datadog screen, then clicking Personal Settings > Preferences > change timezone icon. The Select your time zone window will open where you can select your a new default time zone using the provided map or fields.

Interacting with the Dashboard

On the PubSub+ Insights dashboards for Datadog, we use many of the Datadog widgets and predominately the Query widgets (for metrics), Timeseries widgets (for trends), and Monitor Summary widgets (for aggregating monitor information). Many of the widgets can be clicked and expanded to show a full-screen mode for additional analysis of the details and addition information.

All visualizations are based on the selected time interval chosen and you can change what is shown in the widget using data filters and time filters.

The metrics, monitor counts, and tables have been configured to filter out the Solace-specific internal objects generated as part of the services' internal operations. For example, the queues that are generated for Config-Sync activities are filtered out of the results to focus dashboards on the overall event broker service operations without the clutter of the internal objects.

The following are the most common widgets. We provide an high-level description about how to use them with references to the Datadog documentation for more details:

Monitor Summary

The Monitor Summary widget shows a summarized subset of the PubSub+ Insights monitors for Datadog based on the configured query.

Monitor Summary widgets generally configured to trigger a warning when values reach 80% of a limit and an alert at 95% of the limit. The large numbers on Monitor Summary widgets represent the number of monitors watching your event broker services (not to be confused with the number of alerts or warnings). If a Monitor Summary widget has even one instance of a Datadog monitor triggered by a critical event, it raises an Alert level event and it is counted in the Alert bucket - the same applies for a Warning. The meaning of OK in a Monitor Summary widget indicates that there are no monitors that were triggered as warnings or alerts.

The Monitor Summary widget may be filtered down to reflect the context of the dashboard or the title of the widget. For example, on the Estate overview, it would be all the dashboard's various monitors. For more detailed information, see the Monitor Summary in the Datadog documentation.

You can click on the any of the summary numbers or the list of monitors to view the monitor on it's own page or if available, you can click on an individual monitor listed to open a view to details about the selected.

Tables

On each dashboard (usually near the bottom) you will find a summary table that provides an overview of the various metrics and collected information in columns by tag key. This uses a Table widget from Datadog. For more information, Table widgets in the Datadog documentation.

This table can be sorted and filtered on a relevant key based on the dashboard, such as then name of the event broker service, Message VPN bridge, or REST Destination Point (RDP) as examples.

All tables on this dashboard show up to 100 rows. All table interactions are for the entire set of possible rows. You can click on the column headers to sort the entire list and show you the top (or bottom) 100 rows based on the sorted metric. You can also type in the Search field to filter the results. For example, in this summary table, you can filter by the name of the event broker service.

Other interactions with the Table widget:

You can hover your cursor over a column heading to get the full name. In most cases, the names are truncated.

You can click an entry in the table so that a pop-up menu appears and do the following:

  • Set <data_filter> to <selected_entry>: You can click on an <selected entry> and set the <data filter> for the table to use that value, where <selected entry> is the entry in the table you selected and <data_filter> is the table's filter (template variable), such as $service_name.
