Monitor Cache Counters
There are two major categories of performance counters; Server counters and Client counters.
In order to monitor cache counters, follow the steps below:
Launch NCache Web Manager by browsing to http://localhost:8251 (Windows) or
<server-ip>:8251(Windows + Linux).
From the left navigation bar, click on the Clustered Caches or Local Caches based on your requirement.
- Click on the "..." button on the right corner against the cache name and click on Monitor Cluster. Make sure that the cache is already running.
- NCache Monitor will be opened in a new tab. By default, it has three dashboards opened.
All the default dashboards are non-editable. It means no counter or graph can be added or removed from default dashboards.
It contains Cluster Health, Event Logs along with some mostly required cache counter graphs like, CPU Usage, Network Usage, Cache Size, Request/sec Graph and Memory Usage etc. Server Dashboard is generally a graphical view dashboard.
This built-in dashboard displays different client side counters. Few of the counters display the NCache client system resource usage info like NCache Client CPU, NCache Client Memory, NCache Client Network. This dashboard also shows the NCache client specific information, e.g., NCache Client Request Queue, NCache Client Read Operations/sec, NCache Client Write Operations.
This view shows counters in numeric form rather than graphs. It contains two portions, each for Server Report View and Client Report View. Both portions contain respective counters.
