Cassandra Diagnostics by SmartCat is a monitoring and auditing extension for Apache Cassandra implemented as a Java agent. On one side it has connectors for different versions of Cassandra and on the other it has reporters to send measurements to different tools. One of reporters most commonly used is the InfluxDB reporter, which is a natural choice when it comes to storing time-series metrics. InfluxDB’s tagging feature gave SmartCat an easy way of differentiating measurements and creating queries. Also key, was InfluxDB’s integration with Riemann and good support in the Java community with a well documented driver.

SmartCat is consultancy company delivering outstanding Big Data, visualization and analytics technical solutions empowering decision makers around the globe.


Scalingo needed metrics (CPU, RAM, network consumption) and their customers needed metrics for accurate decision handling. This was the motivation for Scalingo designing their own metrics infrastructure. This meant collecting, storing and querying relevant data. Learn more about their metrics system in their blog post.
