Manage statistics using the CLI

This page describes how to manage the statistics using the GUI.
Using the GUI, you can:

List statistics types

Command: weka stats list-types
Use the following command line to obtain statistics definition information: weka stats list-types [<name-or-category>] [--show-internal]
Parameters
Name
Type
Value
Limitations
Mandatory
Default
name-or-category
String
Name or category fo filter by
Valid name or category
No
show-internal
Boolean
Also displays internal statistics
No
False

View statistics in real-time

Command: weka stats realtime
Use the following command line to obtain the current performance-related statistics of the hosts in a one-second interval: weka stats realtime [<node-ids>] [--raw-units] [--UTC]
Parameters
Name
Type
Value
Limitations
Mandatory
Default
node-ids
Comma-separated strings
Only show realtime stats of these nodes
No
raw-units
Boolean
Print values in raw units (bytes, seconds, etc.)
No
Human-readable format, e.g 1KiB 234MiB 2GiB
UTC
Boolean
Print times in UTC
No
Host's local time

View statistics over time

Command: weka stats
The collected statistics can help analyze system performance and determine the source of issues that may occur during Weka system runs. Statistics are divided according to categories. When selecting a category, a list of the possible statistics is displayed, from which you can select the specific statistics.
Note: Weka averages all statistics over one-second intervals. Consequently, the total value or other aggregates relate to a specific minute.
Use the following command line to manage filters and read statistics:
weka stats [--start-time <start-time>] [--end-time <end-time>] [--interval interval] [--resolution-secs resolution-secs] [--category category][--stat stat] [--node-ids node-ids] [--param param] [--accumulated] [--per-node] [--no-zeros] [--show-internal] [--raw-units] [--UTC]
