How to monitor your consumption

Reviewed on 13 June 2024Published on 09 October 2020

You can view your Object Storage’s metrics and logs using Scaleway Cockpit. Scaleway Object Storage is fully integrated into Cockpit, and allows you to monitor your objects, storage usage, and bandwidth at a glance. This page explains how to get started with Scaleway Cockpit for viewing your Object Storage metrics and logs.

Cockpit is available in all regions for Object Storage.

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
  • An Object Storage bucket

How to activate your Cockpit

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

How to access the Grafana dashboard

To view your Object Storage metrics and logs, use the 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.
  • Then use these credentials to access the Grafana dashboard for all your Scaleway products via the Scaleway console.
  1. Create a Grafana user and retrieve your username and password.

  2. From the Scaleway console Cockpit overview page, click Open dashboards in the top right corner.

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

    You are directed to the Scaleway Cockpit dashboard homepage.

  4. From the Scaleway Dashboards panel, select:

  • the Object Storage Overview dashboard to access your metrics.

  • the Object Storage Logs Overview dashboard to access your logs.

    You are directed to the selected dashboard. You can use the filters in the top left corner of the page to refine your metrics and logs.


Your Object Storage metrics and logs dashboards are also accessible from the console via the Metrics and Logs tabs of a bucket.
