Monitoring lets you collect and store metrics and display them as charts on dashboards.
Monitoring automatically collects data on the status of your resources in Yandex Cloud and displays them on service dashboards. You can use the API to upload custom metrics.
Use Monitoring to:
- Track the status of your services in Yandex Cloud on service dashboards. This lets you monitor the current load on resources and plan an increase in quotas.
- Upload your own metrics using the API. You can place the metrics of your application and the metrics of Yandex Cloud resources it uses on a single dashboard.
- Download resource metrics and custom metrics using the API.
- Create dashboards and charts to display metrics in a way that's convenient for you.
How the service works
The Monitoring service collects and stores metrics as time series. The service uses labels to identify and describe the time series characteristics. They indicate whether a metric belongs to the service, describe the meaning of metrics, and so on. For more information, see Data model.
Monitoring displays metrics on charts. You can place a large number of interrelated charts on dashboards. For more information, see Visualization.
