Overview

To monitor the health of your Gloo Mesh Enterprise components, you can leverage pre-built Grafana dashboards. Grafana is an open source interactive data-visualization platform that allows users to see their data via charts and graphs that are unified into one dashboard.

Operations dashboard

The operations dashboard lets you monitor the health of your Gloo Mesh Enterprise environment, such as the average translation and reconciliation time for the Gloo management server, or translation errors that occured. Built on top of Grafana and integrated with the Gloo Prometheus server, the dashboard is configured to visualize critical Gloo Mesh Enterprise metrics and alerts for you so that you can quickly see errors and the performance of Gloo Mesh Enterprise components.

With the operations dashboard, you have access to the following key features:

The operations dashboard is not automatically set up when you install Gloo Mesh Enterprise. To access the dashboard, you must follow these steps:

  1. Set up and access Grafana
  2. Import the operations dashboard

Cilium dashboard

When you add Cilium, Hubble, and eBPF-specific metrics to the Gloo telemetry pipeline and you import the pre-built Cilium dashboard to Grafana, you gain access to the following key features that can help you monitor the health of your Cilium components and the workloads in your cluster:

The Cilium dashboard is not automatically set up when you install Gloo Mesh Enterprise. To access the dashboard, you must follow these steps:

  1. Set up and access Grafana
  2. Import the Cilium dashboard

The Cilium dashboard offers various graphs and data that provide a full picture of the health of the Cilium CNI and the network traffic in your cluster. To provide and visualize this data, it is recommended to add all Cilium metrics to the Gloo telemetry pipeline. Note that if you customized the Cilium metrics and enabled only certain Cilium metrics, some graphs in the dashboard might remain empty due to missing data.

OPA dashboard
