SignalFx Monitoring and Alerting for PCF (Beta)

WARNING: The SignalFx Monitoring and Alerting tile is currently in beta and is intended for evaluation and test purposes only. Do not use this product in a PCF production environment.

This documentation describes the SignalFx Monitoring and Alerting integration for Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF). Use this integration to monitor the health and performance of your PCF deployment using SignalFx. This integration retrieves metrics about your PCF deployment from the Loggregator Firehose and BOSH Health Monitor and sends them to SignalFx. This tile forwards all Firehose metrics, including any custom metrics you might be sending to the Firehose through Metron. It also sends the BOSH Health Monitor metrics for all BOSH-managed VMs.

In addition to this tile, SignalFX also offers a BOSH Release of our agent that can be mixed into your BOSH deployments in order to collect metrics on services running alongside your Cloud Foundry deployment.

Overview

SignalFx’s integration with PCF includes:

  • At-a-glance visualization of key metrics
  • Built-in dashboards
  • Documentation of the metrics collected by this integration
