15.5. About Infinispan Statistics

Runtime statistics about Infinispan cache and cache-container objects can be enabled for monitoring purposes. Statistics collection is not enabled by default for performance reasons.


Enabling Infinispan statistics can have a negative impact on the performance of the Infinispan subsystem. Statistics should be enabled only when required.
Statistics collection can be enabled for each cache-container, cache or both. The statistics option for each cache overrides the option for the cache-container. Enabling or disabling statistics collection for a cache container will cause all caches in that container to inherit the setting, unless they explicitly specify their own. If only a cache-container is enabled for statistics, useful statistics are available.
