Cassandra Monitoring in SCOM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    Cassandra is running on Linux server. I have done process monitoring and log file monitoring. But related to cassandra, i am a bit confused. I have received below request:-

    1. Schedule monitoring of the Cassandra service on both the Cassandra servers (linux servers). Trigger P1 incident if Cassandra service is stopped on any of the Cassandra servers.


    service cassandra status

    Expected Output:

    Service should be in running state

    2.Schedule monitoring of the Cassandra nodes. Trigger P1 incident if any of the Cassandra node is down from available nodes.


    nodetool status

    Expected Output:

    3. Set monitoring for Cassandra Error log. On multiple occurrences of specific error, Trigger P2 incident.

    Log File Details:

    1. Log File Path : /var/log/cassandra
    2. Log File Name: Cassandra.log
    3. Log lines starting with : ERROR
