How to monitor COUCHDB databases

What is CouchDB Database?

Apache CouchDB is a NoSQL document oriented database distributed under the Open Source Apache license 2.0.

Designed for the Web and distribution across multiple servers, it uses various protocols for data transfer, storage and processing (HTTP, JSON and JavaScript / MapReduce).

CouchDB Database monitoring

ServicePilot monitors a CouchDB Database by gathering metrics per node from a CouchDB instance.

This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Agent in order to monitor availability and performance metrics from a CouchDB Database.

The monitoring statistics gathered in this way include:

  • 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 resquesting changes, HTTPD temporary views read...
  • Database metrics: number of database reads and writes, document writes and inserts.
