SOLR Environmental Monitor

This dashboard looks at the environmental factors related to the SOLR application server. CPU Load is observed with heap and non-heap memory usage. Web request time and counts are included with a failed transaction traffic light alert. This alert may be adjusted to the % preferred. Class and Thread data are also included.

SOLR Web Requests

The SOLR Web Requests Dashboard provides a Business Transaction like view of all the /SOLR requests. Easy drill down to the transaction details from here. To provide a more detailed operational view we have included charting for all web requests, /SEARCH and /UPDATE specific SOLR web requests. To round out this view the Processor, Free/Comitted memory, and Disk Read/Writes are also charted here.
