Enabling or Disabling Metrics Collection or Logging

You can use the MapR Installer to enable or disable metrics collection and logging during a new or incremental installation.

During installation using the MapR Installer, you can configure metrics and logging using settings on the Monitoring page of the MapR Installer user interface. Installing the metrics collection infrastructure is selected by default because the MapR Control System relies on these metrics to provide graphs and charts. Logging is deselected by default.

If you did not install metrics collection or logging during your initial installation, you can add it later by selecting the feature during an Incremental Install.

If you installed metrics collection or logging during your initial installation but you want to disable it, you can do so by deselecting the feature during an Incremental Install.
Note: If you do not install (or choose to uninstall) the metrics collection infrastructure, the MapR Control System cannot display graphs and charts.
