1. Create universe
If you have a previously running local universe, destroy it using the following.
$ ./yb-docker-ctl destroy
Start a new local universe with replication factor 3.
$ ./yb-docker-ctl create --rf 3
2. Run sample key-value app
Pull the yb-sample-apps docker container. This container has built-in Java client programs for various workloads including SQL inserts and updates.
$ docker pull yugabytedb/yb-sample-apps
Run the simple
CassandraKeyValue workload application in a separate shell.
$ docker run --name yb-sample-apps --hostname yb-sample-apps --net yb-net yugabytedb/yb-sample-apps --workload CassandraKeyValue \ --nodes yb-tserver-n1:9042 \ --num_threads_write 1 \ --num_threads_read 4
3. Prepare Prometheus config file
Copy the following into a file called
yugabytedb.yml. Move this file to the
/tmp directory so that we can bind the file to the Prometheus container later on.
global: scrape_interval: 5s # Set the scrape interval to every 5 seconds. Default is every 1 minute. evaluation_interval: 5s # Evaluate rules every 5 seconds. The default is every 1 minute. # scrape_timeout is set to the global default (10s). # YugabyteDB configuration to scrape Prometheus time-series metrics scrape_configs: - job_name: 'yugabytedb' metrics_path: /prometheus-metrics static_configs: - targets: ['yb-master-n1:7000', 'yb-master-n2:7000', 'yb-master-n3:7000'] labels: group: 'yb-master' - targets: ['yb-tserver-n1:9000', 'yb-tserver-n2:9000', 'yb-tserver-n3:9000'] labels: group: 'yb-tserver' - targets: ['yb-tserver-n1:11000', 'yb-tserver-n2:11000', 'yb-tserver-n3:11000'] labels: group: 'yedis' - targets: ['yb-tserver-n1:12000', 'yb-tserver-n2:12000', 'yb-tserver-n3:12000'] labels: group: 'ycql' - targets: ['yb-tserver-n1:13000', 'yb-tserver-n2:13000', 'yb-tserver-n3:13000'] labels: group: 'ysql'
4. Start Prometheus server
Start the Prometheus server as below. The
prom/prometheus container image will be pulled from the Docker registry if not already present on the localhost.
$ docker run \ -p 9090:9090 \ -v /tmp/yugabytedb.yml:/etc/prometheus/prometheus.yml \ --net yb-net \ prom/prometheus
Open the Prometheus UI at http://localhost:9090 and then navigate to the Targets page under Status.
5. Analyze key metrics
On the Prometheus Graph UI, you can now plot the read/write throughput and latency for the
CassandraKeyValue sample app. As we can see from the source code of the app, it uses only SELECT statements for reads and INSERT statements for writes (aside from the initial CREATE TABLE). This means we can measure throughput and latency by simply using the metrics corresponding to the SELECT and INSERT statements.
Paste the following expressions into the Expression box and click Execute followed by Add Graph.
Read Latency (in microseconds)
avg(irate(handler_latency_yb_cqlserver_SQLProcessor_SelectStmt_sum[1m])) / avg(irate(handler_latency_yb_cqlserver_SQLProcessor_SelectStmt_count[1m]))
Write Latency (in microseconds)
avg(irate(handler_latency_yb_cqlserver_SQLProcessor_InsertStmt_sum[1m])) / avg(irate(handler_latency_yb_cqlserver_SQLProcessor_InsertStmt_count[1m]))
6. Clean up (optional)
Optionally, you can shutdown the local cluster created in Step 1.
$ ./yb-docker-ctl destroy
