Wavefront Analytics for PCF is a full-featured integration enabling you to monitor your PCF environment and applications running in PCF. The Wavefront Analytics for PCF integration includes a Wavefront Nozzle for PCF tile (available on the Pivotal Network), and many pre-defined Wavefront dashboards that provide visibility into the performance PCF as well as applications running within PCF.
The Wavefront Nozzle for PCF tile includes three components:
- A Wavefront Nozzle that retrieves metrics about your PCF deployment from the Loggregator Firehose and CF BOSH Health Monitor and sends them to Wavefront.
- A Wavefront Proxy that sends metrics to Wavefront in a secure, fast and reliable manner.
- A Wavefront Service Broker for PCF that enables developers to send their app metrics to Wavefront.
The Wavefront Service Broker for PCF exposes service plans so Operators can allow developers to create service plan instances using PCF Apps Manager or the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (cf CLI), and bind them to their apps. Creating a Wavefront Proxy for PCF service instance and binding it to an app provides the routing information of a Wavefront proxy to the app. This lets developers send app metrics to Wavefront through the proxy.
To get started monitoring your PCF environment, login to your Wavefront free trial or your Wavefront instance and go to Integrations > Pivotal Cloud Foundry.
