VMware Blockchain provides several options to view metrics. You can retrieve metrics manually or have the data published to a third-party provider that supports REST endpoints.
To retrieve the metrics, configure the pullMetricsEndpoint values within the zone parameters in the infrastructure descriptor file and use third-party logging providers for metrics analysis. If the parameter is not specified, the default configuration is enabled where the metrics can be retrieved from http://<Blockchain-VM-IP>:9273/metrics URL. See Configuring the Infrastructure Descriptor Parameters on AWS.
You can also publish metrics to other HTTP or HTTPS end points like Splunk by configuring the pushMetricsEndpoint values within the zone parameters in the infrastructure descriptor file. The metrics can be simultaneously published to Wavefront and an HTTP endpoint.
To use Wavefront and ELK, you must configure the wavefront parameters, elasticSearch parameters, and zone parameters in the infrastructure descriptor file. See Configuring the Infrastructure Descriptor Parameters on AWS.
To generate a Tanzu Observability by Wavefront token for the authentication with VMware Blockchain, you must have a Tanzu Observability by Wavefront service account. See the Deactivate or Activate a Service Account section in the Wavefront Documentation.
For VMware Blockchain, Telegraf publishes the metrics data to ElasticSearch. You must install ELK in your environment. You must have the ELK endpoint URL and login credentials to use this metrics provider. See the instructions on installing ELK Stack on Docker on the logz.io website.
You can also use Amazon CloudWatch to view AWS deployment metrics. For setting up Amazon CloudWatch metrics, see the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.
Amazon CloudWatch can create the infrastructure metrics, including Docker, system, and network, for deployments. You must configure the appropriate parameters in the infrastructure descriptor of the VMware Blockchain Orchestrator appliance. See Configuring the Infrastructure Descriptor Parameters on AWS.
