Argos Dashboard

Argos Dashboard provides a real-time holistic view of multiple Hystrix clusters by aggregating data for each cluster onto a single dashboard. This is different than the Hystrix Dashboard which shows Hystrix command metrics for a single cluster or host. Argos Dashboard connects to the Turbine stream for each cluster and aggregates the metrics for all the Hystrix commands running on that cluster. The information shown for each cluster is the same as the Hystrix Dashboard with two exceptions: each metric is the aggregate of all commands on that cluster and the error percentage is the average error percentage of all the commands. This prevents a healthy high frequency command from drowning out a failing low frequency command.

Argos Dashboard needs to know about the Turbine streams for each cluster. The ClusterDiscovery interface returns each cluster and it's corresponding Turbine stream. The implementation of ClusterDiscovery used can be changed via the discovery.impl property. You can implement your own ClusterDiscovery or use one of the provided implementations.

Standard spring-boot and logback configuration can be used for logging.

Provided ClusterDiscovery Implementations


ClusterListDiscovery will connect to Turbine servers and automatically monitor each cluster configured on that server. This is accomplished by connecting to the ClusterListServlet from the Turbine Plugins library. ClusterListServlet is configured automatically if you use the Hystrix / Turbine Quickstart which is intended to be a drop in replacement for Turbine. This implementation needs to know the URL(s) of the ClusterListServlet which is set via the property file:

    impl: com.bodybuilding.argos.discovery.ClusterListDiscovery
            - http://server1/turbine/clusterlist
            - http://server2/turbine/clusterlist


ConfigurationClusterDiscovery takes a list of Hystrix clusters and the corresponding Turbine URL:

    impl: com.bodybuilding.argos.discovery.ClusterListDiscovery

    - 'cluster1|http://turbine/turbine/'
    - 'cluster2|http://turbine/turbine/'

The format for each cluster is <cluster name>|<turbine URL>.
