Procstat Input Plugin

The procstat plugin can be used to monitor the system resource usage of one or more processes. The procstat_lookup metric displays the query information, specifically the number of PIDs returned on a search

Processes can be selected for monitoring using one of several methods:

  • pidfile
  • exe
  • pattern
  • user
  • systemd_unit
  • cgroup

Configuration:

# Monitor process cpu and memory usage
[[inputs.procstat]]
  ## PID file to monitor process
  pid_file = "/var/run/nginx.pid"
  ## executable name (ie, pgrep <exe>)
  # exe = "nginx"
  ## pattern as argument for pgrep (ie, pgrep -f <pattern>)
  # pattern = "nginx"
  ## user as argument for pgrep (ie, pgrep -u <user>)
  # user = "nginx"
  ## Systemd unit name
  # systemd_unit = "nginx.service"
  ## CGroup name or path
  # cgroup = "systemd/system.slice/nginx.service"

  ## override for process_name
  ## This is optional; default is sourced from /proc/<pid>/status
  # process_name = "bar"

  ## Field name prefix
  # prefix = ""

  ## Add PID as a tag instead of a field; useful to differentiate between
  ## processes whose tags are otherwise the same.  Can create a large number
  ## of series, use judiciously.
  # pid_tag = false

  ## Method to use when finding process IDs.  Can be one of 'pgrep', or
  ## 'native'.  The pgrep finder calls the pgrep executable in the PATH while
  ## the native finder performs the search directly in a manor dependent on the
  ## platform.  Default is 'pgrep'
  # pid_finder = "pgrep"

Windows support

Preliminary support for Windows has been added, however you may prefer using the win_perf_counters input plugin as a more mature alternative.

When using the pid_finder = "native" in Windows, the pattern lookup method is implemented as a WMI query. The pattern allows fuzzy matching using only WMI query patterns:

[[inputs.procstat]]
  pattern = "%influx%"
  pid_finder = "native"
