Quickly start monitoring with Autodiscovery

The only thing you'll have to install is Sematext Agent. Then you can enable/disable monitoring of each discovered service type from the user interface. To learn more visit Service Autodiscovery. Of course, if you wish to have full control over what is monitored and avoid configuring things in the user interface, you can still do that. The Sematext Cloud UI will show you manual monitoring installation instructions as well.

Additional Features

To help you manage your metrics, hosts, and containers, and to help you create more useful dashboards, you can assign metadata to each host/server/container in the form of tags.

Check the Tags page for different ways to use tags.

The Network Map visualizes your network topology. It show discovered hosts and the communication between them, including details such as the amount of received or transmitted data on each port.

On-demand profiling lets you profile your own JVM-based applications or even any 3rd party JVM-based applications (e.g. Spark, Elasticsearch, Solr, Kafka, Hadoop, Storm, Cassandra, HBase, etc.). It works with both embedded and standalone agent and has negligible overhead.

You can create custom dashboards with real-time data that helps you understand important trends, summarize top values and view the frequency of conditions.
