The monitoring capability is really bad and needs to be improved. There are no monitoring tools available and there are several metrics that I would like to keep track of. Without good usage monitoring, it will be very hard to use in production. In my opinion, the monitoring feature should be added to minIO in order to give administrators efficient data including bucket information(size, load on it, requests …), the CPU usage, running/ stuck/blocked threads, queue of thread pools, free/max heap percent, request per object in buckets and ... I think providing REST API for monitoring and configuration makes it easier to use. If I can set up MinIO to run as a service then it will be more stable. Enhancing the user interface with more options would be a nice improvement.
