Re: Operate with JMX metrics and measurements units. What metrics to observe for read queries?

Good to hear that you solved the problem already!

If you have the time and want to contribute to JanusGraph, then you could document the necessary steps to configure JanusGraph to get metrics into Prometheus: https://github.com/JanusGraph/janusgraph/issues/1087

Nope I didn't add jmxReporter reporter in  gremlin-server.yaml, however the following properties were added in respective graph.properties file

metrics.enabled = true
metrics
.console.interval = 60000
metrics
.jmx.enabled = true


BTW, was able to resolve this by adding prometheus jmx java agent and jmx VM args in gremlin-server.sh:

exec $JAVA -javaagent:"/data/jmx/jmx_prometheus_javaagent-0.3.1.jar"=9086:/data/jmx/jg_jmx.yml -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.ssl=false -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.authenticate=false -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.port=5556 -Djanusgraph.logdir="$JANUSGRAPH_LOGDIR" -Dlog4j.configuration=conf/gremlin-server/log4j-server.properties $JAVA_OPTIONS -cp $CP:$CLASSPATH org.apache.tinkerpop.gremlin.server.GremlinServer $ARGS


Added some metrics in jg_jmx.yml file

lowercaseOutputName: true
lowercaseOutputLabelNames
: true
ssl
: false
rules
:
- pattern : global.storeManager.openDatabase.calls
  name
: "jg_global_storemanager_opendb_calls"
- pattern : global.storeManager.startTransaction.calls
  name
: "jg_global_storemanager_start_tx_calls"
- pattern : org.janusgraph.caches.retrievals
  name
: "jg_caches_retrievals"

Hi Vincent,

We were configuring the jmx to report the JanusGraph (JG) metrics on to Prometheus, here's the sample JMX yaml file:

lowercaseOutputName: true

lowercaseOutputLabelNames
: true
ssl
: false
rules
:
- pattern : global.storeManager.openDatabase.calls
  name
: "jg_calls_count"
- pattern : org.janusgraph.<type=(.*)>
  name
: "jg_test_$1"

Started the Gremlin Server with java agent:

exec $JAVA -javaagent:"/data/janusgraph/jmx/jmx_prometheus_javaagent-0.3.1.jar"=9086:/data/janusgraph/jmx/jmx.yml -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.ssl=false -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.authenticate=false -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.port=5556 -Djanusgraph.logdir="$JANUSGRAPH_LOGDIR" -Dlog4j.configuration=conf/gremlin-server/log4j-server.properties $JAVA_OPTIONS -cp $CP:$CLASSPATH org.apache.tinkerpop.gremlin.server.GremlinServer $ARGS

And added the jmx reporter on graph properties file:
metrics.enabled = true
metrics
.console.interval = 60000
metrics
.jmx.enabled = true
metrics
.jmx.interval = 60000


It reports all JVM specific metrics on Prometheus (targets) but none of the JanusGraph specific metrics could be seen, just wondering if you can share any steps that you followed to configure JMX metrics reporter on Prometheus?

Thanks,
Suresh V

I have setup JanusGraph and enabled JMX. I have a JMX exported to Prometheus which allows me to query the metrics and generate graphs in Grafana. 

There is probably a hundred different metrics available. What I find hard to understand is:

- what unit are they in (microseconds, milliseconds?)
- which ones are useful to observe for read queries?

One example: I have Cassandra as backend and a Spring boot API to run queries and an UI in front of it.

I have metrics and graphs for Cassandra and the API component. But I would like to know how many queries Janus is handling and the time queries take to run at a 99th percentile.

There is a metric called `metrics_org_janusgraph_query_graph_execute_time_99thPercentile`. Is the the right one to observe? What unit is it in? Microseconds or milliseconds?

I get values such as `400`.

What metrics do you look at to observe read performance?
