start-monitoring

Info

SingleStore Managed Service does not support this command.

Start monitoring.

Usage

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'.
