Oracle Cloud Compute


Overview

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute offers significant price-performance and control improvements compared to on-premises data centers, while providing elasticity and cost savings of the public cloud. It lets you provision and manage compute hosts, known as instances. It offers both bare metal and virtual machine instances.

Monitored Parameters

Go to the Monitors Category View by clicking the Monitors tab. Click on Oracle Cloud under the Cloud Apps section. Displayed is the Oracle Cloud bulk configuration view distributed into three tabs:

  • Availability tab gives the Availability history for the past 24 hours or 30 days.
  • Performance tab gives the Health Status and events for the past 24 hours or 30 days.
  • List view enables you to perform bulk admin configurations.

On clicking a monitor from the list, you'll be taken to the Oracle Cloud dashboard. Under the parent monitor, you have 3 tabs. The child monitor has 6 tabs:

Block Volumes

Oracle Block volumes add storage capacity to an instance and enables you to dynamically provision and manage data.

Parameter Description
Block Volume Details:
Volume OCID Oracle Cloud ID for the block volume.
Block Volume Name A user-friendly name for the volume.
Size In GB The size of the volume in GBs.
Life Cycle State The current state of a volume.
Is Hydrated Specifies whether the cloned volume's data has finished copying from the source volume or backup.
Block Volume I/O Statistics:
Volume OCID Oracle Cloud ID of the block volume.
Read Throughput(MB) The average number of bytes read from the block volume per second.
Write Throughput(MB) The average number of bytes written to the block volume per second.
Read Operations Number of read operations occurring in this block volume.
Write Operations Number of write operations occurring in this block volume.

Network

Track the Virtual Network Interface Cards (VNICs) to determine how an instance connects with endpoints inside and outside a Virtual Cloud Network (VCN).

Parameter Description
Attached VNICs:
VNIC OCID Oracle Cloud ID for the VNIC.
VNIC Name A user-friendly name for the VNIC.
Public IP Address The public IP address of the VNIC.
Private IP Address The private IP address of the primary VNIC.
Primary Indicates whether the VNIC is primary or not.
Life Cycle State The current state of the VNIC.
MAC Address The MAC address of the VNIC.
Skip Source Destination Check Indicates Whether the source/destination check is disabled or not.
VNIC Performance Metrics:
VNIC OCID Oracle Cloud ID for the VNIC.
Egress Packets Dropped by Security List Number of packets sent from the VNIC dropped due to security violations.
Ingress Packets Dropped by Security List Number of packets received from network dropped due to security violations.
Packets from Network Number of packets received by the VNIC after drops.
Packets to Network Number of packets sent from the VNIC before drops.
Input Traffic (Kbps) Rate at which data is received by the VNIC after drops.
Output Traffic (Kbps) Rate at which data is sent from the VNIC before drops.
