Instance Pool Metrics

You can monitor the health, capacity, and performance of your Compute instance pools by using metrics, alarms, and notifications.

This topic describes the metrics emitted by the metric namespace oci_instancepools.

Resources: Compute instance pools.

Overview of Metrics: oci_instancepools

The instance pool metrics help you monitor the lifecycle state of instances in your instance pools.

Required IAM Policy

To monitor resources, you must be given the required type of access in a policy  written by an administrator, whether you're using the Console or the REST API with an SDK, CLI, or other tool. The policy must give you access to the monitoring services as well as the resources being monitored. If you try to perform an action and get a message that you don’t have permission or are unauthorized, confirm with your administrator the type of access you've been granted and which compartment  you should work in. For more information on user authorizations for monitoring, see the Authentication and Authorization section for the related service: Monitoring or Notifications.

Available Metrics: oci_instancepools

The metrics listed in the following table are automatically available for each instance pool that you create. You do not need to enable monitoring on the instances in the pool to get these metrics.

You also can use the Monitoring service to create custom queries.

Depending on the metric, the following dimensions  are available:

AvailabilityDomain
The availability domain  where the instance pool resides.
DisplayName
The friendly name of the instance pool.
FaultDomain
The fault domain  where the instance pool resides.
region
The region  where the instance pool resides.
resourceId
The OCID  of the instance pool.

  2. Click the instance pool that you're interested in.
  3. Under Resources, click Metrics.
  4. In the Metric Namespace list, select oci_instancepools.

    The Metrics page displays a default set of charts for the current instance pool.

For more information about monitoring metrics and using alarms, see Monitoring Overview. For information about notifications for alarms, see Notifications Overview.

To view default metric charts for all instance pools in a compartment
  1. Open the navigation menu. Under Solutions and Platform, go to Monitoring and click Service Metrics.
  2. Select a compartment.
  3. For Metric Namespace, select oci_instancepools.

    The Service Metrics page dynamically updates the page to show charts for each metric that is emitted by the selected metric namespace.
