Cassandra is a highly scalable and highly available distributed database designed to handle large volumes of data distributed across multiple servers. Developed by Facebook and later released as open-source software, Cassandra follows the columnar NoSQL database model. It provides high fault tolerance and lacks single points of failure, allowing data to be distributed across multiple machines and replicated to ensure redundancy and availability. Cassandra is optimized for fast writes and efficient read queries on large datasets, making it suitable for use cases that require high scalability, such as big data analytics, IoT, and real-time applications. With its distributed architecture and schema flexibility, Cassandra is a popular choice for companies that need to handle data on a global and ever-growing scale.
How to Monitor Cassandra on the One Platform
To set up monitoring for Cassandra on the platform, follow these steps:
Go to the product application where you want to add Cassandra as a dependency in the platform.
Click on the "Products" menu and select the desired product card.
Then, click on the name of the specific application where you want to configure Cassandra monitoring.
Look for the section called "External Dependencies," usually located just below the latency graph of the application.
To add an already registered dependency, type the name of the dependency in the search field and select it when it appears in the list.
If Cassandra is not yet registered as a dependency, click on the green button with a plus (+) symbol to add a new dependency.
Click "Add" and a modal will appear allowing you to name the database and select the Environment. In the "Check type" field, choose the option "DB," and in the "Method" field, select "Cassandra." After selecting the method, a field for the Healthcheck URL will appear.
