Having effective load balancing of your Cloud Observability Microsatellites and your tracers is important to ensure an efficient use of computing resources.
The Satellite Pool report gives a high-level view of Microsatellite pool performance and status.
The Reporting Status page provides an active view of the Cloud Observability Tracer clients and Microsatellites over a trailing 60-second window.
Cloud Observability performance is based on the ingress and egress of data from the tracers to the Microsatellites and the amount of memory the Microsatellites have to store that data. You can monitor the performance of Cloud Observability and tune the tracers and Microsatellites to avoid dropped spans.
The Satellite diagnostics service provides health and diagnostic information about the Microsatellite.
Cloud Observability Microsatellites generate several helpful StatsD-based metrics that you can send to any compliant monitoring system.
