Monitoring Engine Statistics

The Centreon interface offers the user the possibility of viewing the statistics of all the schedulers and those linked to the broker.

Performance Information

To view the performance information of your scheduler:

  1. Go to the menu Home ==> Monitoring Engine Statistics
  2. In the left menu, click on Performance Info
  3. Choose your scheduler in the drop-down list Poller
../_images/03statsordonnanceur.png

Multiple tables allows to view the performance of your schedulers:

  • The Actively Checked table can be used to view the number of hosts and services checked in the last minute, the last five minutes, the last quarter of an hour or the last hour.
  • The Check Latency table can be used to view the minimum, maximum and average latency time of the checks performed on the hosts and the services.

Warning

More than the latency is important and more than the execution of checks by the scheduler will be delayed. This implies a potential high server load.

  • The Buffer Usage table can be used to view the number of external commands awaiting processing by the scheduler.

Warning

In the case of a passive monitoring injecting many external commands to the scheduler, it is necessary to check this value. If it is too close to the size limit it is possible to lose commands; consequently it is necessary to increase the size of the buffer.

  • The Status table gives a brief view of the statuses of the hosts and services
  • The Check Execution Time table can be used to view the execution time of a probe, i.e. the time between when it is started and the moment when it transmits the information to the scheduler.

Warning

The longer the execution time, the more it is detrimental to the execution of the other processes in the queue and the more it generates of the latency. The plugins must be efficient not to engender latency.

Broker Statistics

To view the statistics of Centreon Broker:

  1. Go to the menu Home ==> Monitoring Engine Statistics
  2. In the left menu, click on Broker Statistics
  3. Choose your poller in the list entitled Poller

The performance of Centreon Broker is classified by entities of Centreon Broker (module scheduler, Broker-RRD, Broker-Central).

For each entity, the Centreon web interface displays:

  • The list of loaded Centreo Broker modules
  • The input/output performance

Input/Output Performance

Each performance contains multiple data:

  • The State field contains the status of the input, of the output and the status of the module itself
  • The Temporary recovery mode field indicates if the buffer file of the module is in use
  • The Last event at field indicates the date and the time of the last event to have occurred
  • The Event processing speed field indicates the number of events processed per second
  • The Last connection attempt field contains the date and the time of the last connection attempt
  • The Last connection success field contains the date and the time of the last successful connection
  • The Peers field describes the entities connected
  • The One peer retention mode field indicates the enabling or not of the unidirectional connection mode between the Centreon server and the poller
  • The Queued events field indicates the number of events to be processed
  • The File being read field indicates the failover file in the progress of being read
  • The Reading position (offset) field indicates the reading position associated with the failover file
  • The File being write field indicates the failover file in the progress of being written
  • The Write position (offset) field indicates the writing position associated with the failover file
  • The Max file size field indicates the maximum size of the failover file
  • The Failover field indicates the associated temporary backup file

Graphs

It is also possible to view the performance of monitoring engines as performance graphs. For this:

  1. Go to the menu Home ==> Monitoring Engine Statistics
  2. In the left menu, click on Graphs
  3. Choose your poller in the list entitled Poller
  4. Choose the period on which you want to view the performance graphs
