Oracle Cloud Infrastructure GoldenGate Metrics

Monitor the deployment health, capacity, and overall performance of your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure GoldenGate deployments using metrics, alarms, and notifications.

Overview

GoldenGate metrics help you measure the amount of data replicated between source and target databases.

The following terms are helpful for understanding metrics:

  • Namespace: A container for GoldenGate metrics. The namespace for GoldenGate is oci_goldengate.
  • Metrics: The fundamental concept in telemetry and monitoring. Metrics define a time-series set of datapoints. Each metric is uniquely defined by namespace, metric name, compartment identifier, a set of one or more dimensions, and a unit of measure. Each datapoint has a timestamp, a value, and a count associated with it.
  • Dimensions: A key-value pair that defines the characteristics associated with the metric. For example, resourceId, which is the GoldenGate deployment OCID.
  • Statistics: Metric data aggregations over specified periods of time. Aggregations are done using the namespace, metric name, dimensions, and the datapoint unit of measure within the time period specified.
  • Alarms: Used to automate operations monitoring and performance. An alarm keeps track of changes that occur over a specific period of time. It also performs one or more defined actions, based on the rules defined for the metric.

Prerequisites

  • IAM policies: 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 Monitoring or Notifications.
  • The metrics listed on this page are automatically available for any GoldenGate deployment you create. You do not need to enable monitoring on the resource to get these metrics.

Available Metrics

GoldenGate metrics may include the following dimensions:

  • deploymentId: For all metrics, the deploymentId is the deployment OCID.
  • deploymentName: Name of the GoldenGate service deployment
Metric Metric Display Name Unit Description Dimensions
CpuUtilization CPU Utilization percent Total CPU usage percentage by all consumer groups

deploymentId

deploymentName

OcpuConsumption OCPU Consumption count

Total number of OCPUs used by the deployment.

When the count is lower than the minimum number of OCPUs, the minimum is shown.

When the number of OCPUs is greater than the minimum number, the actual number of OCPUs used is shown.
