Using a detailed monitoring policy

  • PDF

It is available in a Classic/VPC environment.

NAVER Cloud Platform provides the detailed monitoring policy feature so that Object Storage can be monitored by linking with Cloud Insight. When you apply a detailed monitoring policy to a bucket, the metrics related to API requests for that bucket are collected. The metrics so collected can be viewed in Cloud Insight. You can limit the target of metric aggregation by setting a prefix and suffix.

  • You can set up to 1,000 policies for a bucket.
  • To set detailed monitoring policies, the Cloud Insight subscription is required. For more details about Cloud Insight, refer to the Service > Management & Governance > Cloud Insight menus in the portal.
  • The API request metrics collected through detailed monitoring policies are charged separately from the number of API requests included in the Object Storage pricing.

Create detailed monitoring policy

The following describes how to create a detailed monitoring policy.

  1. Click the Services > Storage > Object Storage menus in order in the NAVER Cloud Platform console.

  3. Click the [Create detailed monitoring policy] button.
  4. When the Create policy pop-up window is displayed, set the policy.
    • Policy name: Enter the name of the detailed monitoring policy.
      • Policy names must be unique for each bucket and can't be modified once created.
    • Target bucket: target bucket for applying the detailed monitoring policy
      • You can set up to 1,000 policies for a bucket and can't change the bucket when the policy is created for the bucket.
    • Prefix/Suffix: Enter the prefix/suffice that limits application-target objects.
      • Prefix/suffix rules apply to the entire path of the object, including the folder and file name.
        If you apply "/images" as a prefix and "jpg" as a suffix, then /images/somepath/test101. jpg becomes a target for aggregation, but /images/somepath/test101.png does not.
  5. Click the [Create policy] button.
    • A detailed monitoring policy is added.
Note
  • API request metrics collected after creating a detailed monitoring policy are measured in 1-minute increments and provided through the Cloud Insight widget after the aggregation delay. For more details about widget creation, refer to Cloud Insight Widget Creation Guide.
  • It may take some time for Cloud Insight to check the collected metrics.
  • Bucket metrics (bucket size, number of objects in a bucket) can be viewed in the Cloud Insight dashboard, regardless of whether detailed monitoring policies are enabled. It may take some time for the bucket metrics to be applied.
