Connecting to Grafana dashboards in Cloudera Data Warehouse Private Cloud

This topic describes how to connect to Grafana dashboards to monitor your Virtual Warehouses in Cloudera Data Warehouse (CDW) Private Cloud.

To access Grafana from an environment in CDW service, the environment must be assigned to you as a resource by using Management Console. For instructions, see the links at the bottom of this page.

  1. In the CDW service, select Overview in the left navigation menu, expand the Environment column, and locate the environment that is associated with the Virtual Warehouse you want to monitor. Make note of the environment ID, which is displayed on the environment tile in the CDW UI:
  2. Click the grid icon in the left navigation menu to expand the menu, and click Management Console.
  3. In the Management Console UI make sure Environments is selected in the left navigation menu, and click the CDP Control Plane Monitoring Dashboard under Other Links in the central panel of the page:

    This launches the Grafana dashboard.

  4. In the Grafana dashboard, click the grid icon in the left navigation menu, and select Manage.
