Cassandra

This page provides documentation access for Cassandra app

Apache Cassandra is an open source NoSQL distributed database with high scalability and availability without compromising performance.

Log Types

The app supports Logs and Metrics from the open source version of Cassandra. The App is tested on the 3.11.10 version of Cassandra.

Cassandra has three main logs, the system.log, debug.log and gc.log which hold general logging messages, debugging logging messages, and java garbage collection logs respectively.

These logs by default live in ${CASSANDRA_HOME}/logs, but most Linux distributions relocate logs to /var/log/cassandra. Operators can tune this location as well as what levels are logged using the provided logback.xml file. For more details on Cassandra logs, see this link.

The Sumo Logic App for Cassandra supports metrics generated by the Jolokia2 plugin for Telegraf. The app assumes prometheus format Metrics.
