What is Apache CouchDB?

Apache CouchDB is an open-source NoSQL database that focuses on ease of use and embracing the web. It is document-oriented, meaning it stores data as documents within the database, as opposed to tables and rows in a traditional relational database.

Designed for the web, CouchDB uses various protocols for data transfer, storage, and processing, including HTTP, JSON, and JavaScript/MapReduce. Its ability to distribute data across multiple servers makes it highly scalable and reliable, making it a popular choice for web applications.

How to monitor Apache CouchDB?

ServicePilot makes it easy to monitor "CouchDB Database" with no configuration required on the target server. Simply add an database-couchdb package to your monitoring environment and ServicePilot automatically gathers metrics per node from a CouchDB instance.

  • HTTPD Request Methods metrics: GET, PUT, COPY, DELETE, POST...
  • HTTPD status codes metrics: 200, 201, 202, 301, 304...
  • HTTPD metrics: number of requests, number of clients requesting changes, HTTPD temporary views read...
  • Database metrics: number of database reads and writes, document writes and inserts.
