Planning to disable internal storage

Review considerations for disabling local storage and offloading all data in your IBM® API Connect Analytics deployment.

The Analytics subsystem provides a complete solution for routing, storing and viewing the analytics data. However, you might not need the internal storage and viewing solution, especially if you are primarily using a third-party system for data offloading. In this scenario, you can greatly reduce your CPU and memory costs by disabling the internal storage and viewing components.

With this approach, data that is offloaded is not viewable in the Aanalytics UI in API Manager and Developer Portal, so those components can be disabled as well.

When you disable internal storage for analytics data, the following microservices are disabled:

  • client
  • cj-retention
  • cj-rollover
  • storage-coord
  • storage-data
  • storage-master
  • storage-shared
