You can view your Messaging and Queuing metrics via Scaleway Cockpit. This allows you to monitor your queues/streams and messages at a glance. There are three steps to complete to view your Messaging and Queuing metrics for the first time with Cockpit:

  1. Activate your Cockpit
  2. Generate your Grafana credentials
  3. Access the Messaging and Queuing metrics dashboard

These steps are described below.

Security & Identity (IAM):

You may need certain IAM permissions to carry out some actions described on this page. This means:

  • you are the Owner of the Scaleway Organization in which the actions will be carried out, or
  • you are an IAM user of the Organization, with a policy granting you the necessary permission sets

How to activate your Cockpit

Scaleway Cockpit is deactivated by default. To activate it, follow the procedure detailed in the Cockpit documentation.

How to generate Grafana credentials
