LogicMonitor offers out-of-the-box monitoring for Couchbase Server (formerly known as Membase), a document-oriented NoSQL database software package that is optimized for applications that serve concurrent users. Our LogicModule package for Couchbase Server accesses the Couchbase Server REST API to monitor auto-failover events, bucket performance, node status, pool performance, and more.
As of July 2020, LogicMonitor's Couchbase Server package is compatible with Couchbase Server REST API 6.5. As Couchbase Server releases newer versions of its REST API, LogicMonitor will test and extend coverage as necessary.
Add your Couchbase Server host into monitoring. For more information on adding resources into monitoring, see Adding Devices.
LogicMonitor must provide the appropriate credentials in order to successfully access Couchbase Server data. These credentials must belong to an API user; it is recommended that the user account have read-only permissions only.
A read-only user is created with the /settings/readOnlyUser URI endpoint. Only one read-only user can be created. See Couchbase Server's User API and Creating a read-only user documentation for API user creation instructions.
The following custom properties should be set on the Couchbase Server resource within LogicMonitor. For more information on setting properties, see Resource and Instance Properties.
From the LogicMonitor public repository, import all Couchbase Server LogicModules, which are listed in the LogicModules in Package section of this support article. If these LogicModules are already present, ensure you have the most recent versions.
Once the LogicModules are imported (assuming all previous setup requirements have been met), data collection will automatically commence.
LogicMonitor's package for Couchbase Server consists of the following LogicModules. For full coverage, please ensure that all of these LogicModules are imported into your LogicMonitor platform.
When setting static datapoint thresholds on the various metrics tracked by this package's DataSources, LogicMonitor follows the technology owner's best practice KPI recommendations. If necessary, we encourage you to adjust these predefined thresholds to meet the unique needs of your environment. For more information on tuning datapoint thresholds, see Tuning Static Thresholds for Datapoints.
The Couchbase Server Auto Failover DataSource reports a failover count based off of the Couchbase Server automatic failover policy. See Automatic Failover.
Couchbase Server Auto Failover
Automatic failover node minimums are service specific and are outlined in the following table.
