Prometheus exporter that scrapes meta information about a running ceph cluster. All the information gathered from the cluster is done by interacting with the monitors using an appropriate wrapper over
rados_mon_command(). Hence, no additional setup is necessary other than having a working ceph cluster.
You should ideally run this exporter from the client that can talk to Ceph. Like any other ceph client it needs the following files to run correctly.
ceph.confcontaining your ceph configuration.
ceph.<user>.keyringin order to authenticate to your cluster.
Ceph exporter will automatically pick those up if they are present in
any of the default
locations. Otherwise you will need to provide the configuration manually using
We use Ceph's official Golang client to run commands on the cluster.
Ceph exporter is tested only on Ceph's Hammer(v0.94) and Jewel(v10.2) releases. It might not work as expected with older or non-LTS versions of Ceph.

Typical way of installing in Go should work.
A Makefile is provided in case you find a need for it.
The official docker image is available at digitalocean/ceph_exporter.
Build From Source
It is also possible to build your own locally from the source. The port
exposed as a default port for ceph exporter.
The exporter needs your ceph configuration in order to establish communication with the monitors. You can either pass it in as an additional command or mount the directory containing both your
ceph.conf and your user's keyring under the default
/etc/ceph location that
Ceph checks for.
A sample build command would look like:
$ docker build -t digitalocean/ceph_exporter .
You can start running your ceph exporter container now.
$ docker run -v /etc/ceph:/etc/ceph -p=9128:9128 -it digitalocean/ceph_exporter
You would have to ensure your image can talk over to the monitors. If
it needs access to your host's network stack you might need to add
--net=host to the above command. It makes the port mapping redundant
-p flag can be removed.
Point your prometheus to scrape from
:9128 on your host now (or your port
of choice if you decide to change it).
