Amazon CloudWatch dashboard

Starting with Amazon ParallelCluster version 2.10.0, an Amazon CloudWatch dashboard is created when the cluster is created. This makes it easier to monitor the nodes in your cluster, and to view the logs stored in Amazon CloudWatch Logs. The name of the dashboard is parallelcluster-ClusterName-Region. ClusterName is the name of your cluster and Region is the Amazon Web Services Region of the cluster. You can access the dashboard in the console, or by opening

The following image shows an example CloudWatch dashboard for a cluster.

The first section of the dashboard displays graphs of the Head Node EC2 metrics. If your cluster has shared storage, the next section shows shared storage metrics. The final section lists Head Node Logs grouped by ParallelCluster's logs, Scheduler's logs, NICE DCV integration logs, and System's logs.

If you don’t want to create the Amazon CloudWatch dashboard, you must complete these steps: First, add a [dashboard] section to your configuration file, and then add the name of that section as the value of the dashboard_settings setting in your [cluster] section. In your [dashboard] section, set enable = false.

For example, if your [dashboard] section is named myDashboard and your [cluster] section is named myCluster, your changes resemble this.

[cluster MyCluster] dashboard_settings = MyDashboard ... [dashboard MyDashboard] enable = false
