At the end of Part 1, the end result was a set of polygons that represented each Cassandra node in a Kubernetes statefulset. The cAdvisor-based metrics CPU/Memory/Disk utilization are scraped by Prometheus. This second tutorial will focus on a rollup of multiple Cassandra clusters running inside Kubernetes. We will end up with three dashboards tied together to provide an overview of our Cassandra clusters.

We have been working on a new panel and component architecture for the last half year (or more), and it’s finally starting to bear fruit in terms of new visualizations and capabilities.
Daniel Lee discusses native support for the major cloud platforms, and highlights popular plugins from the Grafana community.
This talk covers experience and thoughts about how to approach the monitoring and management of cloud-native systems. It will draw both from observations of the opportunities provided by systems like Kubernetes as well as from practical hands-on experience from building real monitoring systems. With luck it will provide both experiences from the past, and inspirations for the future.
Nikki Attea talks about one of the endless permutations of metrics software you can pair with Sensu. She'll show you how to collect data using Sensu check output metric extraction, transform that data with a Sensu InfluxDB Handler, store the data in an InfluxDB time series database and visualize that data on a Grafana dashboard.
