Manage and monitor compute and storage

As an organization administrator, you can view the compute and storage utilization of the ArcGIS Analytics for IoT subscription directly in the Analytics for IoT application. Overall compute and storage consumption are summarized on the Home page and detailed information is available on the Compute Utilization and Storage Utilization pages.

Compute and storage dashboard

For organization administrators, the Home page of the Analytics for IoT application displays a dashboard reporting the total compute and storage utilized, based on the compute and storage available in the Analytics for IoT subscription.

Home page compute and storage utilization

The compute and storage gauges will appear green if the percentages are under the alerting thresholds and in shades of orange and red as the percent utilized approaches 100%. For compute, administrators will receive an alert if utilization exceeds 75%. If the percent compute utilization exceeds 90%, users may begin to receive error messages when starting new feeds or analytics if there is insufficient capacity to run that feed or analytic.

For storage, administrators will receive an alert if storage utilization exceeds 50%. If the percent of utilized storage exceeds 70%, additional storage is automatically added to the subscription.

Compute and storage usage over time is displayed in the time series chart. This can be used to understand the rate of increase for compute or storage consumption. The time series information can be displayed over the last hour, the last 24 hours, the last week, or the last month. You can use the Auto-Refresh toggle if you are actively starting and stopping feeds and analytics and would like to see the immediate impacts.

Compute utilization

The Compute Utilization page provides additional information on how much of the available compute is being used across different user tasks. Compute usage is broken down between feeds, real-time analytics, and big data analytics. The percent compute utilized along with the user ID of the item owner is reported for each item in the Task details chart. By default, the items are sorted descending by compute usage. Each item's title links to the details page for that item in Analytics for IoT.

Storage utilization

The Storage Utilization page provides additional information on how much of the available storage is being used across different system components in Analytics for IoT. Storage is consumed by the following primary components:

  • Logs
  • Metrics
  • Message Buffer
  • System
  • Features

The percent storage consumed by different feature layers is reported in the By features chart. Specifically, this chart displays the percent storage each layer is consuming out of the total storage utilized by all feature layers. These percentages will always add up to 100 and allow you to understand the relative size of feature layers compared to each other. By default, the layers are sorted descending by feature layer storage usage. Each item is listed with the user ID of the owner of that feature layer item and each item's title links to the ArcGIS Online details page for that item.

Summary

Organization administrators can use the information provided on the Compute Utilization and Storage Utilization pages to understand the impact of user items on available compute as well as the relative size of different feature layers that are consuming available storage. Additionally, this information can be used to coordinate with users on the necessity or status of various items if subscription capacity needs to be freed up to accommodate other use cases across the organization.
