Snap collector plugin - haproxy
This plugin collects metrics from running HAProxy by reading statistics and information from Unix socket.
It's used in the Snap framework.
- golang 1.5+ - needed only for building
- HAProxy installed and running with 'stats socket' configuration
All OSs currently supported by Snap:

Configuration and Usage
- Set up the Snap framework.
- Create HAProxy global configuration and launch HAProxy, see HAProxy documentation.
- Create Global Config, see description in [Snap's Global Config] (https://github.com/intelsdi-x/snap-plugin-collector-haproxy#snaps-global-config).
- Load the plugin and create a task, see example in Examples.
List of collected metrics is described in METRICS.md.
Snap's Global Config
Global configuration files are described in Snap's documentation. You have to add section "haproxy" in "collector" section and then specify following options:
"socket"- indicates stats socket which is set in HAProxy global configuration, for more information read HAProxy Configuration Manual.
See example Global Config in [example cfg] (examples/cfg/snap-global-cfg.json).
Example running haproxy and writing data to a file.
Download and install HAProxy, the latest version of HAProxy in available here.
Create HAProxy configuration and save it in config.cfg, example HAProxy configuration:
global stats socket /var/run/haproxy.sock mode 600 level admin stats timeout 2m frontend LB bind *:81 default_backend LB backend LB server Server01 127.0.0.1:8080 check server Server02 127.0.0.1:8081 check
As a root launch HAProxy with configuration:
$ haproxy -f config.cfg
Download an example Snap global config file.
$ curl -sfLO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/intelsdi-x/snap-plugin-collector-haproxy/master/examples/cfg/snap-global-cfg.json
Ensure Snap daemon is running with provided configuration file:
- command line:
snapteld -l 1 -t 0 --config cfg.json&
