InterSystems System Alerting and Monitoring (SAM) is a cluster monitoring solution for InterSystems IRIS data platform version 2020.1 and later. Whether your application runs on a local mirrored pair or in the cloud with multiple application and data servers, you can use SAM to monitor your application.
I am trying to investigate whether the SAM component will give us metrics that we are looking for when it comes to # of messages, etc... I have IRIS 2022.1 running on Red Hat 8, but noticed that SAM was bundled as a docker-compose image. REL 8 doesn't install docker off the bat, but has podman which reading podman 3 versions and later, I should be able to call docker-compose.yml images. After installing Apache and making some modifications to docker-compose.yml, I tried executing the start.sh script after verifying podman was running and podman-compose was installed.
I installed a community version of Intersystems IRIS in a Large AWS EC2 instance to do some testing. I installed SAM and when I try to "Add a new cluster" I receive the following: "ERROR #5005: Cannot open file '/config/prometheus/isc_tmp_yml_file.yml'"
Now that I have SAM up and running, out of the box I would like to add some Application Metrics. Does anyone have templates, or have suggested classes that someone could use to add custom metrics to SAM? Maybe we should start a repository somewhere? Or would someone be willing to share custom metrics on the Open Exchange?
What I am looking to do is capture the overall HL7 message and header count per day.
Note sure if anyone would know this.... But I presented my team with a Proof of Concept of running SAM to monitor our IRIS Development and Test Clusters. In talking with them we would like additional OS metrics that aren't provided by what is built into SAM. Looking at more OS detail I found node_exporter from Promethus. I added node_exporter to our server that we want to monitor, but then tried to config isc_prometheus.yml to use node_exporter. That did not go well and when I restarted SAM, it would not download the built in metrics to SAM.
