Apigee Edge Private Cloud Monitoring can really be a dauting task. Apigee Supports JMX and you can use any of the JMX tools like JConsole to monitor system parameters. This projects brings you the monitoring with Grafana, Influx and Telegraf.

How it works

Apigee Monitoring Dashboard Monitoring

Quick Start


Influxdb is a time series database.

Install Influxdb

Please refer for installing influxdb. We are supporting influxdb 1.2.2+.


  • CPU: 2 Core
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Disk: 500 GB SDD, 3000 IOPS.

In case you are using RHEL/Centos, you can install with following commands -

    curl -O
    sudo yum localinstall influxdb-1.5.3.x86_64.rpm

Enable and Start influxdb

systemctl enable influxdb
systemctl start influxdb

Configure Influxdb

Once influxdb is installed, Go to the influx terminal to create initial databases

Connected to http://localhost:8086 version 1.5.3
InfluxDB shell version: 1.5.3
  • Show databases
> SHOW databases
name: databases

  • Create databases - system,events, application
> CREATE database application
> CREATE database system
> CREATE database events
> SHOW databases
name: databases

> exit


Grafana UI allows visual representation of events and metrics. In this case we will import some pre baked dashboards that will give some useful insights into Apigee.

Install Grafana

Please refer to for installing grafana. You can install grafana on management server node or any other nodes.

  • Add the following to a new file at /etc/yum.repos.d/grafana.repo

  • Install Grafana as follows
sudo yum install grafana
  • Start the server (via systemd)
sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl start grafana-server
sudo systemctl status grafana-server
  • Enable the systemd service to start at boot
sudo systemctl enable grafana-server.service

Configure Grafana

Create 3 datasources : application-dc-1 , system-dc-1 and events-dc-1 and point them to application, system and events database of influx.

  • name: application-dc-1
  • type : Choose the type to influxDB
  • HTTP URL : This is the influxdb machines ip address. The default port is 8086.
  • Influx DB Details: -- Database : application -- User: root -- Password: root

Application Data Source Application Data Source

Events Data Source Events Data Source

System Data Source System Data Source

Import Dasboards

Import All the Pre built dashboards provided this sample. You can also build your own dashoards.Upload the json file from the UI as given below.

Telegraf is the collection agent that collects all metrics from all apigee components.

Install Telegraf

Install telegraf agent on all apigee nodes which needs monitoring.

 cat <<EOF | sudo tee /etc/yum.repos.d/influxdb.repo
  name = InfluxDB Repository - RHEL \$releasever
  baseurl =\$releasever/\$basearch/stable
  enabled = 1
  gpgcheck = 1
  gpgkey =

Configure Telegraf - This needs to be configured in all nodes.

  • Copy telegraf.conf from samples provided telegraf/telegraf.conf to /etc/telegraf/telegraf.conf in the host.
  • Edit /etc/telegraf/telegraf.conf and replace with ip address of influxdb server.
  • Copy relevant toml files present in telegraf/telegraf.d/ to /etc/telegraf/telegraf.d/ directories based on the apigee component running on that node. For ex: If node is running apigee cassandra and apigee zookeeper only, copy apigee-cassandra.toml and apigee-zookeeper.toml to /etc/telegraf/telegraf.d/ If management server is running copy edge-management-server.toml.

Start Telegraf

  sudo yum --disablerepo=influxdb install telegraf
  sudo systemctl start telegraf
  sudo systemctl enable telegraf
  sudo systemctl status telegraf

Finishing Up

You can now browse the UI through http://grafanaIPorDNS:3000

Hurry!!! You have just setup basic monitoring.
