How to monitor Messaging and Queuing with Scaleway Cockpit

Reviewed on 09 April 2024Published on 07 September 2023

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 two steps to complete to view your Messaging and Queuing metrics for the first time with Cockpit:

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

These steps are described below.

Cockpit dashboard updates

Starting April 2024, a new version of Cockpit will be released.

In this version, the concept of regionalization will be introduced to offer you more flexibility and resilience for seamless monitoring. If you have created customized dashboards with data for your Scaleway resources before April 2024, you will need to update your queries in Grafana, with the new regionalized data sources.

Before you start

To complete the actions presented below, you must have:

  • A Scaleway account logged into the console
  • Owner status or IAM permissions allowing you to perform actions in the intended Organization
  • A NATS account or have activated SQS/SNS

How to activate your Cockpit

Scaleway Cockpit is activated by default if you have created Scaleway resources integrated with Cockpit.

How to generate Grafana credentials

To view your Messaging and Queuing metrics with Cockpit, you will use a Grafana dashboard which is accessible from the Scaleway console. First, you must create a user and their associated credentials (a username and password) for Grafana. This can be done directly from the Scaleway console, by following this procedure.

How to access your Messaging and Queuing dashboard and view your metrics

  1. Click Messaging in the Serverless section of the Scaleway console side menu.

  2. Click the protocol you want to view metrics for, and navigate to the Metrics tab.

  3. Click Open Grafana metrics dashboard.

  4. Enter your Grafana username and password to log in.

    You are directed to the dashboard for Messaging and Queuing, where you can view all your metrics.
