Every application and server in a distributed system can access statistical data about Pivotal GemFire operations. You can configure the gathering of statistics by using the
alter runtime command of
gfsh or in the
gemfire.properties file to facilitate system analysis and troubleshooting.
Each application or cache server that joins the distributed system can collect and archive statistical data for analyzing system performance.
For replicated, distributed, and local regions, GemFire provides a standard set of statistics for the region and its entries.
GemFire includes interfaces for defining and maintaining your own statistics.
You configure statistics and statistics archiving in several different ways.
