Cascade Bandwidth Usage

Is there a way to either parse the logs or some other means to determine the amount of bandwidth Cascade is using over a period of time?

    Beginning with Cascade Server 7.12.3, we include a lightweight monitoring tool called Java Melody. Check out the steps here for enabling that. Once you've done so, it looks as if the tool provides bytes sent/received per minute. Let me know if this helps.

    All I am seeing is hits per minute not amount of data used in a given period.

    Interesting. Yea, I had mentioned that because I noticed these specific charts on the Java Melody site here. Given that those aren't appearing in the monitoring tool in Cascade, I checked their Release Notes and found that the newer version of Melody provides these charts:

    fix: in v1.52.0 with Tomcat, graphs of bytes received/sent and of Tomcat active threads were not displayed anymore in "Other charts" (revision 3908). This was unfortunately caused by the fix of issue 406 .

    What I believe you can do is simply download their latest JAR file from here, then do the following:

    • Stop Cascade Server
    • Replace the file tomcat/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/lib/javamelody-1.52.0.jar with the new JAR file that you downloaded
    • Remove the folder tomcat/work
    • Start Cascade Server

    Then, when you go to the monitoring interface, let me know if you see the new charts.
