System monitoring

System monitoring tools in ThoughtSpot include several Liveboards in the Admin Console and system logs. Additionally, ThoughtSpot provides several worksheets and out-of-the-box system monitoring Liveboards. From these worksheets, you can create your own custom visualizations and Liveboards. This section introduces these features and directs you towards more detailed information.

System worksheets and Liveboards

The ThoughtSpot application includes an Admin Console center, where you can easily view Liveboards that monitor usage, alerts, events and general cluster health. Navigate to the Admin Console by selecting Admin from the top navigation bar.

Only users with administrative privileges can view the Admin Console. However, administrative users can present the information in the Admin Console to others.

Administrators can also create their own, custom Liveboards that reflect system data in ways that are meaningful to specific departments or groups.

For more information on system worksheets and Liveboards, refer to the following articles:

Much of the data presented by these boards is also available through tscli commands, see tscli command reference.

Log files

Many of the administration commands output logging information to log files. The logs get written into the fixed directory /export/logs/, with a sub-directory for each subsystem. The individual log directories follow:

  • /export/logs/orion

  • /export/logs/oreo

  • /export/logs/hadoop

  • /export/logs/zookeeper

You can also view additional topics that also touch on log files throughout the documentation.

System monitoring notifications

You can configure ThoughtSpot to send emails to addresses you specify with monitoring reports and a cluster heartbeat. Follow these steps to set up monitoring.
