This guide describes how Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) operators can monitor their Pivotal Application Service (PAS) deployments. For information about monitoring Pivotal Container Service (PKS) deployments, see Logging and Monitoring PKS.
For more information about logging and metrics in PCF, see Overview of Logging and Metrics.
This guide includes the following topics:
Key Performance Indicators: A list of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that operators may want to monitor with their PAS deployment to help ensure it is in a good operational state.
Key Capacity Scaling Indicators: A list of capacity scaling indicators that operators may want to monitor to determine when they need to scale their PAS deployments.
Selecting and Configuring a Monitoring System: Guidance for setting up PAS with monitoring platforms to continuously monitor component metrics and trigger health alerts.
This table highlights new and changed KPIs and scaling indicators in PAS v2.5.
|Modified||CF Syslog Drain Bindings Count||
In PAS v2.5, the CF Syslog Drain Bindings Count scaling indicator uses the following derived metric:
||CF Syslog Drain Bindings Count|
|New||Log Cache Caching Duration||The Log Cache Caching Duration scaling indicator indicates the age in milliseconds of the oldest data point stored in Log Cache. This metric is useful for determining when to scale the VMs on which Log Cache runs.||Log Cache Caching Duration|
