Instance Pool Metrics
This topic describes the metrics emitted by the metric namespace
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:
- The availability domain where the instance pool resides.
- The friendly name of the instance pool.
- The fault domain where the instance pool resides.
- The region where the instance pool resides.
- The OCID of the instance pool.
|Metric||Metric Display Name||Unit||Description||Dimensions|
||Instance Pool Size||instances||Number of instances in the pool.||
||Instances Provisioning||instances||Number of instances in the pool that are provisioning.||
||Instances Running||instances||Number of running instances in the pool.||
||Instances Terminated||instances||Number of instances in the pool that are terminating or terminated.||
