I’ve started using the HikariCP agent extension.
The good news is that I’m getting some data out of my app in that I can see Custom metrics for Hikari where none existed before (yay!).
The bad news is that the metrics make no sense to me (boo!).
- There are two metrics Busy Count and Idle Count for my pool. Are there others available as well?
- What is the definition for Busy and Idle counts and what is their unit of measure? I ask because the query for the Busy and Idle count says “average(newrelic.timeslice.value) * 1000”. This gives me values like 10k - I don’t have 10k db connections so what does this mean?
