MemSQL Helios does not support this command.
The 'start-monitoring' command creates a database where cluster information is stored and establishes pipelines for streaming data into it. The 'sdb-admin start-monitoring' command must be run on the Master Aggregator of the cluster you want to store monitoring data in (the Metrics cluster). The Metrics cluster may be the same as the Source cluster. The 'sdb-admin configure-monitoring' command must be run on the Master Aggregator of the Source (monitored) cluster before running the current command. Running the 'sdb-admin configure-monitoring' command in succession will recreate pipelines each time. SingleStore DB 7.1.8 is the minimum version required to run 'start-monitoring'. Usage: sdb-admin start-monitoring [flags] Flags: --batch-interval MILLISECONDS Time interval between data collections in milliseconds (default 15000) --database-name string Monitoring database name (default "metrics") --disable-sample-queries Disables queries sampling --exporter-host string Host where memsql_exporter is run (on the Source cluster) --exporter-port PORT Port where memsql_exporter is run (on the Source cluster) (default 9104) -h, --help Help for start-monitoring --high-cardinality-metrics Collect high cardinality metrics. It is recommended to set --batch-interval to at least 60000 if high-cardinality-metrics is enabled --monitoring-version string Version of the cluster running monitoring --password string The database user's password for connecting to SingleStore DB (on the Metrics cluster). If a password is specified on the command line, it must not contain an unescaped '$' character as it will be replaced by the shell --purge-frequency MINUTES Time between purges of expired monitoring data for a specific Source cluster (default 60) --purge-limit int Maximum number of entries deleted during a monitoring data purge for a specific Source cluster (ADVANCED) (default 10000) --purge-log-retention-period DAYS Period of time to retain purge log entries (ADVANCED) (default 365) --retention-period DAYS Period of time to retain monitoring data for a specific Source cluster (default 7) --user string The database user for connecting to SingleStore DB (on the Metrics cluster) (default "root") Global Flags: --backup-cache FILE_PATH File path for the backup cache --cache-file FILE_PATH File path for the Toolbox node cache -c, --config FILE_PATH File path for the Toolbox configuration --disable-colors Disable colored output in console, which some terminal sessions/environments may have issues with --disable-spinner Disable the progress spinner, which some terminal sessions/environments may have issues with -j, --json Enable JSON output --parallelism POSITIVE_INTEGER Maximum number of operations to run in parallel --runtime-dir DIRECTORY_PATH Where to store Toolbox runtime data --ssh-max-sessions POSITIVE_INTEGER Maximum number of SSH sessions to open per host, must be at least 3 --state-file FILE_PATH Toolbox state file path -v, --verbosity count Increase logging verbosity: valid values are 1, 2, 3. Usage -v=count or --verbosity=count -y, --yes Enable non-interactive mode and assume the user would like to move forward with the proposed actions by default
