Hi Jonathan,

Please refer to the below link to get the detail

Also you can run the below query to determine how many metrics inserted per minute in controller DB.

mysql> select from_unixtime(ts_min*60), NOW(), count(distinct(node_id)), count(*) from metricdata_min where ts_min > (select max(ts_min) - 10 from metricdata_min) group by 1 order by 1;

Is it possable to get the total number of metrics/minute the Controller is collecting per application ?



This query will give the you start time used in the query, the end time, application name, number of nodes per application, and number of metrics per application.

SELECT from_unixtime(ts_min*60), NOW(), AS application_name, count(distinct(mm.node_id)), count(*) FROM metricdata_min AS mm, application AS a 

WHERE ts_min > (SELECT max(ts_min) - 2 FROM  metricdata_min) AND ts_min < (SELECT max(ts_min) FROM metricdata_min) AND = mm.application_id GROUP BY application_name, 1 ORDER BY 1;

Great thanks looks good. Will have to run when we have load.

Is it possible to get metrics per minute by tenant on the Controller?
