This documentation describes Pivotal Healthwatch.
Pivotal Healthwatch is a service for monitoring and alerting on the current health, performance, and capacity of Ops Manager. To help operators understand the operational state of their Ops Manager deployment, Pivotal Healthwatch:
- Stores, visualizes and alerts on metrics from core Ops Manager components, including BOSH-reported VM metrics. The service covers the recommended Key Performance Indicators and Key Scaling Indicators for a given version of Ops Manager.
- Executes health checks as continuous validation tests and creates super metrics. The service stores, displays, and forwards this data into the Loggregator Firehose for external consumption by existing customer solutions. For more information, see Pivotal Healthwatch Metrics and Access Super Metrics Through the Firehose.
Pivotal Healthwatch stores all data points for 25 hours and then prunes them. Any active alerts that are pruned reissue an alert every 24 hours if the related metrics are not yet recovered to a normal state.
