This document describes the monitoring items of TiFlash.
If you use TiUP to deploy the TiDB cluster, the monitoring system (Prometheus & Grafana) is deployed at the same time. For more information, see Overview of the Monitoring Framework.
The Grafana dashboard is divided into a series of sub dashboards which include Overview, PD, TiDB, TiKV, Node_exporter, and so on. A lot of metrics are there to help you diagnose.
TiFlash has three dashboard panels: TiFlash-Summary, TiFlash-Proxy-Summary, and TiFlash-Proxy-Details. The metrics on these panels indicate the current status of TiFlash. The TiFlash-Proxy-Summary and TiFlash-Proxy-Details panels mainly show the information of the Raft layer and the metrics are detailed in Key Monitoring Metrics of TiKV.
It is recommended that you use TiDB v4.0.5 or later versions for improved monitor on TiFlash.
The following sections introduce the default monitoring information of TiFlash-Summary.
- Store size: The storage size used by each TiFlash instance.
- Available size: The storage size available for each TiFlash instance.
- Capacity size: The storage capacity for each TiFlash instance.
- Uptime: The runtime of TiFlash since last restart.
- Memory: The memory usage per TiFlash instance.
- CPU Usage: The CPU utilization per TiFlash instance.
- FSync OPS: The number of fsync operations per TiFlash instance per second.
- File Open OPS: The number of
openoperations per TiFlash instance per second.
- Opened File Count: The number of file descriptors currently opened by each TiFlash instance.
Store size, FSync OPS, File Open OPS, and Opened File Count currently only cover the monitoring information of the TiFlash storage layer and do not cover that in TiFlash-Proxy.
- Request QPS: The number of coprocessor requests received by all TiFlash instances.
batchis the number of batch requests.
batch_copis the number of coprocessor requests in the batch requests.
copis the number of coprocessor requests that are sent directly via the coprocessor interface.
cop_dagis the number of dag requests in all coprocessor requests.
super_batchis the number of requests to enable the Super Batch feature.
- Executor QPS: The number of each type of dag executors in the requests received by all TiFlash instances.
table_scanis the table scan executor.
selectionis the selection executor.
aggregationis the aggregation executor.
limitis the limit executor.
- Request Duration: The total duration of all TiFlash instances processing coprocessor requests. The total duration is from the time that the coprocessor request is received to the time that the response to the request is completed.
- Error QPS: The number of errors of all TiFlash instances processing coprocessor requests.
meet_lockmeans that the read data is locked.
region_not_foundmeans that the Region does not exist.
epoch_not_matchmeans the read Region epoch is inconsistent with the local epoch.
kv_client_errormeans that the communication with TiKV returns an error.
internal_erroris the internal system error of TiFlash.
otheris other types of errors.
- Request Handle Duration: The duration of all TiFlash instances processing coprocessor requests. The processing time is from starting to execute the coprocessor request to completing the execution.
- Response Bytes/Seconds: The total bytes of the response from all TiFlash instances.
- Cop task memory usage: The total memory usage of all TiFlash instances processing coprocessor requests.
- Handling Request Number: The total number of all TiFlash instances processing coprocessor requests. The classification of the requests is the same as that of Request QPS.
- Schema Version: The version of the schema currently cached in each TiFlash instance.
- Schema Apply OPM: The number of TiDB
schema diffsynchronized in
applyoperations by all TiFlash instances per minute. This item includes the count of three types of
full apply, and
diff applyis the normal process of a single apply. If
failed applyincreases by
1, and TiFlash rolls back to
full applyand pulls the latest schema information to update the schema version of TiFlash.
- Schema Internal DDL OPM: The number of specific DDL operations executed per minute in all TiFlash instances.
- Schema Apply Duration: The time used for a single
apply schemaoperation in all TiFlash instances.
- Write Command OPS: The number of write requests received per second by the storage layer of all TiFlash instances.
- Write Amplification: Write amplification of each TiFlash instance (the actual bytes of disk writes divided by the written bytes of logical data).
totalis the write amplification since this start, and
5minis the write amplification in the last 5 minutes.
- Read Tasks OPS: The number of read tasks in the storage layer per second for each TiFlash instance.
- Rough Set Filter Rate: The proportion of the number of packets read by each TiFlash instance in the last minute that are filtered by the rough set index of the storage layer.
- Internal Tasks OPS: The number of times that all TiFlash instances perform internal data sorting tasks per second.
- Internal Tasks Duration: The time consumed by all TiFlash instances for internal data sorting tasks.
- Page GC Tasks OPM: The number of times that all TiFlash instances perform Delta data sorting tasks per minute.
- Page GC Tasks Duration: The distribution of time consumed by all TiFlash instances to perform Delta data sorting tasks.
- Disk Write OPS: The number of disk writes per second by all TiFlash instances.
- Disk Read OPS: The number of disk reads per second by all TiFlash instances.
- Write flow: The traffic of disk writes by all TiFlash instances.
- Read flow: The traffic of disk reads by all TiFlash instances.
These metrics only cover the monitoring information of the TiFlash storage layer and do not cover that in TiFlash-Proxy.
- Write & Delta Management Throughput: The throughput of write and data compaction for all instances.
throughput_writemeans the throughput of data synchronization through Raft.
throughput_delta-managementmeans the throughput of data compaction.
total_writemeans the total bytes written since the last start.
total_delta-managementmeans the total bytes of data compacted since the last start.
- Write Stall Duration: The stall duration of write and removing Region data (deleting ranges) by instance.
- Write Throughput By Instance: The throughput of write by instance. It includes the throughput by applying the Raft write commands and Raft snapshots.
- Write Command OPS By Instance: The total count of different kinds of commands received by instance.
write blockmeans the data logs synchronized through Raft.
delete_rangemeans that some Regions are removed from or moved to this instance.
ingestmeans some Region snapshots are applied to this instance.
- Read Index OPS: The number of times that each TiFlash instance triggers the
read_indexrequest per second, which equals to the number of Regions triggered.
- Read Index Duration: The time used by
read_indexfor all TiFlash instances. Most time is used for interaction with the Region leader and retry.
- Wait Index Duration: The time used by
wait_indexfor all TiFlash instances, namely the time used to wait until local index >= read_index after the
read_indexrequest is received.
