Introduction

E2E Networks nodes and load-balancers are monitored for commonly monitored parameters to ascertain server health in real-time. The information is graphically represented on the MyAccount portal. MyAccount also allows you to easily configure alert policies, set email notifications to enable you to respond quickly to critical situations when server health alerts are triggered. Overall it helps you in better planning and proactively resolving potential future problems. In this guide, we’ll provide you information about where to see the monitoring graphs and how to set alerts through the MyAccount portal.

  • Login to MyAccount portal
  • Once you are into E2E Networks My Account dashboard, select sub-menu ‘Nodes’ under the Products menu on the left side of your dashboard

  • You will redirect to the ‘Manage Node’ page. All your running nodes will be listed if there is no node then you can create an E2E Node.

Monitoring Graphs

Monitoring of server health is a free service that provides insights into resource usage across your infrastructure. There are several different display metrics to help you track the operational health of your infrastructure. Select the node for which you want to check the metrics

General Information

Check the server information such as the current status and the overall uptime.

Disk Space

Monitor the overall used & free space on your compute node’s disk

Memory Usage

Monitor the overall used & free RAM on your compute node.

  • Click on the ‘Monitoring’ tab to check the CPU Performance, Disk Read/ Write operation, and Network Traffic Statistics

CPU Performance

The CPU utilization is the sum of work handled by a Central Processing Unit. It is also used to estimate system performance. CPU utilization can vary according to the type and amount of computing task because some tasks require heavy CPU time while others require less CPU time.

Disk Read Operation

Monitor the IOPS of disk read operation on your compute node.

Disk Write Operation

Monitor the IOPS of disk write operation on your compute node.

Network Traffic Statistics

Monitoring Alerts

Server Health Alerts gives you the ability to create triggers about your server’s performance and resource utilization metrics which timely notifies you about any subsequent behavior changes. For this, you need to specify the rules to receive notifications or invoke actions when there is any metric change to the underlying infrastructure. The alerting system works by sending automatic response notifications to a user-defined email list when the value of the metric relative to a preset threshold level changes.

  • To Setup Alerts select the node from the dropdown list at manage node page (for which you want to set the monitoring alerts) and Click on the ‘Alert’ tab.

Define Trigger Parameters

  • You need to click on the ‘+Create Alert’ button to define trigger parameters and “Monitoring Alert’ window will open.
../_images/mon11.png
  • Select the ‘Alert Type’ for which you want to configure the rules.

  • CPU Load Average – Set the CPU load threshold level which can be greater than, less than or equal, not equal to a threshold defined value.
  • Free Memory – Set the memory utilization level which can be greater than, less than, equal or not equal to a threshold defined value. Kindly note that Free Memory alert is not applicable to the Windows virtual Nodes.
  • Free Disk Space – Set the disk space utilization level which can be greater than, less than, equal or not equal to a threshold defined value. Kindly note that Free Disk Space alert is not applicable to the Windows virtual Nodes.
  • Webcheck – Webcheck is a web URL monitoring tool which will create an alert on 2 conditions.
    Success code 200 – The request was fulfilled. Text match – Webcheck program crawls on a given website URL and checks specific phrases of text on the website. If webcheck finds any changes different from the standard text then you will receive an email notification. Max Webcheck Limit – 5 URL’s

  • Then select the ‘Is’ condition which can be set to trigger events.
../_images/mon14.png
  • After specifying the above values, you need to define the threshold value ‘Whenthreshold value (%)’. This threshold value will be validated and if the condition meets then an alert event is triggered.

Alert Contacts

  • The predefined contacts will receive email notifications based on the triggers.
../_images/mon15.png
  • Click on the ‘configure’ button to input the email addresses on which you want to send the notification alerts and “Configure service Alerts’ window will open.
../_images/mon16.png
  • Enter the list of email addresses on which you want to send alerts. Note – You can use these delimiters – comma (,) to separate multiple emails in a list.
  • Click on the ‘Save’ button to save the list.
  • In case an alert condition is met then the emails entered will receive a notification. You can easily manage the Emails on which you want to send the alerts by simply adding or deleting them from the list.
