System monitoring tools in ThoughtSpot include the Control Center, system log files and out-of-the-box system monitoring pinboards.
System monitoring notifications
You can configure ThoughtSpot to send emails to addresses you specify with monitoring reports and a cluster heartbeat. Follow these steps to Set up monitoring.
System Health Center
The ThoughtSpot application includes a System Health Center, for easy monitoring of usage and cluster health, including alerts. You can view the System Health Center by clicking on the Administration icon and then clicking System Health.
The System Health Center shows the following information:
The Overview section shows a summary of overall cluster status, usage and capacity information, configuration changes, and critical alerts.
The Data section shows all the stored tables with details on the last update time, time taken for auto-indexing, number of rows, etc.
|The data has been loaded.|
|IN PROGRESS||The data is still being loaded.|
|STALE||The data is not up to date.|
|ERROR||The table is invalid. Call ThoughtSpot Support.|
|The data is up to date and searchable.|
|The data is not ready to be searched.|
|The table has already been deleted, but the index still exists due to the latency between the database and search engine.|
|INDEXING DISABLED||Either too many tokens exist in a column for it to be indexed, or indexing has been disabled manually.|

The Cluster Manager section show detailed information about a cluster including latency over time, snapshot status, installed release, node functions, and logs.
The Events and Alerts section shows notifications, alerts, and an audit trail of cluster configuration changes..
System monitoring pinboards
There are several system monitoring pinboards in ThoughtSpot that include information about the system status and resource usage. The information in these pinboard is updated hourly from an internal database that collects monitoring statistics.
The monitoring pinboards can only be viewed by users with the administrator privilege. They are based on worksheets, which administrators can view, but not modify. The underlying tables are protected system tables that cannot be accessed directly. However, you can create new monitoring reports from the worksheets.
- Ts: bi server
- Ts: database
- Ts: loader
- Ts: search
- Ts: service resources
Here is a list of the system monitoring pinboards:
Many of the administration commands output logging information to log files. The logs get written into the fixed directory /export/logs, with a sub-directory for each subsystem. The individual log directories are:
