Datadog's Cassandra Cheatsheet
Find all the commands and metrics you need to monitor Cassandra usage and performance.
Apache Cassandra has dozens of metrics that you can use to keep tabs on your cluster, but it’s not always easy to remember which nodetool command to run or which MBean to view. Our handy cheatsheet provides:
- Nodetool commands for monitoring cluster status, node-level metrics, garbage collections, and more
- A shortlist of key metrics that you can browse using JConsole or other JMX utilities
- Locations of key resources such as logs, config files, and data directories
