Data Migration Monitoring Metrics

If your DM cluster is deployed using DM-Ansible, the monitoring system is also deployed at the same time. This document describes the monitoring metrics provided by DM-worker.

Note:

Currently, DM-master does not provide monitoring metrics yet.

Task

Metric name Description Alert
task state the state of subtasks 10 minutes after subtasks become paused

Relay log

Metric name Description Alert
storage capacity The storage capacity of the disk occupied by the relay log N/A
storage remain The remaining storage capacity of the disk occupied by the relay log An alert is needed once the value is smaller than 10G.
process exits with error The relay log encounters an error within the DM-worker and exits. Immediate alerts
relay log data corruption The number of corrupted relay log files Immediate alerts
fail to read binlog from master The number of errors encountered when the relay log reads the binlog from the upstream MySQL Immediate alerts
fail to write relay log The number of errors encountered when the relay log writes the binlog to disks Immediate alerts
binlog file index The largest index number of relay log files. For example, “value = 1” indicates “relay-log.000001”. N/A
binlog file gap between master and relay The number of binlog files in the relay log that are behind the upstream master When the number of binlog files in relay that are behind the upstream master exceeds one (>1) and the condition lasts over 10 minutes
binlog pos The write offset of the latest relay log file N/A
read binlog duration The duration that the relay log reads binlog from the upstream MySQL (in seconds) N/A
write relay log duration The duration that the relay log writes binlog into the disks each time (in seconds) N/A
binlog size The size of a single binlog event that the relay log writes into the disks N/A

Dumper

The following metric shows only when task-mode is in the full or all mode.

Metric name Description Alert
dump process exits with error Dumper encounters an error within the DM-worker and exits. Immediate alerts

Loader

The following metrics show only when task-mode is in the full or all mode.

Metric name Description Alert
load progress The data import process percentage of Loader. The value range is 0% ~ 100%. N/A
data file size The total size of the data files in the full data imported by Loader (including the INSERT INTO statement) N/A
load process exits with error Loader encounters an error within the DM-worker and exits. Immediate alerts
table count The total number of tables in the full data imported by Loader N/A
data file count The total number of data files in the full data imported by Loader (including the INSERT INTO statement) N/A
latency of execute transaction The duration that Loader executes a transaction (in seconds) N/A
latency of query The duration that Loader executes a query (in seconds) N/A

Binlog replication

The following metrics show only when task-mode is in the incremental or all mode.

Metric name Description Alert
remaining time to sync The predicted remaining time it takes Syncer to be completely replicated with the master (in minutes) N/A
replicate lag The latency time it takes to replicate the binlog from master to Syncer (in seconds) N/A
process exist with error The binlog replication process encounters an error within the DM-worker and exits. Immediate alerts
binlog file gap between master and syncer The number of binlog files in Syncer that are behind the master When the number of binlog files in Syncer that are behind the master exceeds one (>1) and the condition lasts over 10 minutes
binlog file gap between relay and syncer The number of binlog files in Syncer that are behind relay When the number of binlog files in Syncer that are behind relay exceeds one (>1) and the condition lasts over 10 minutes
binlog event qps The number of binlog events received per unit of time (this number does not include the events that need to be skipped) N/A
skipped binlog event qps The number of binlog events received per unit of time that need to be skipped N/A
cost of binlog event transform The time it takes Syncer to parse and transform the binlog into SQL statements (in seconds) N/A
total sqls jobs The number of newly added jobs per unit of time N/A
finished sqls jobs The number of finished jobs per unit of time N/A
execution latency The time it takes Syncer to execute the transaction to the downstream (in seconds) N/A
