Variables

  • nginx_core module supports variable: http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_core_module.html#variables
  • This module variables
    • date: current date in the format: 1970-09-28
    • time: current time in the format: 12:00:00
    • year: current year
    • month: current month
    • day: current date
    • hour: current hour
    • minute: current minute
    • second: current second

Methods

To load this library,

you need to specify this library's path in ngx_lua's lua_package_path directive. For example:

http {
   lua_package_path '/path/to/lua-resty-stats/lib/?.lua;/path/to/lua-resty-stats/lib/?/init.lua;/path/to/lua-resty-stats/view/?.lua;;';
}

you use require to load the library into a local Lua variable:

local stats = require("resty.stats")

Back to TOC add_def_stats

syntax: stats.add_def_stats()

add the predefined stats configs that contains:

stats_name: stats_host
stats_config:
{
    selector={date='$date',key='$host'}, 
    update={['$inc']= {count=1, ['hour_cnt.$hour']=1, ['status.$status']=1, 
            ['req_time.all']="$request_time", ['req_time.$hour']="$request_time"}},
            indexes={
                {keys={'date', 'key'}, options={unique=true}},
                {keys={'key'}, options={}}
            },
    }
}

After this method is called, when you used stats.log(stats_name) method, you can use these predefined statistics.

add_stats_config

syntax: stats.add_stats_config(stats_name, stats_config)

Add a custom statistical configuration item that contains stats_name and stats config.

  • stats_name is the name of the statistics, and also is the name of the mongodb's table. The name will be used when calling the stats.log(stats_name) method.
  • stats_config is used to define the values of statistics. stats_config is a table that contains some fileds:
    • selector a mongodb query statement. like: {date="$date",key="$host"}
    • update a mongodb update statement. like: {["$inc"]= {count=1, ["hour_cnt.$hour"]=1, ["status.$status"]=1, ["req_time.all"]="$request_time", ["req_time.$hour"]="$request_time"}}
    • indexes a table that contains all fields of the index.

The selector and update configuration can use variables.
Note that "$inc" is not a nginx variable, it's a mongodb's operator.

init

syntax: stats.init(mongo_cfg, flush_interval, retry_interval)

Initialization statistical library.

  • mongo_cfg The mongodb configuration, contains fields:
    • host mongodb's host
    • port mongodb's port
    • dbname mongodb's database name.
  • flush_interval flush data to the mongodb time interval, the time unit is seconds.
  • retry_interval the retry time interval on flush error,the time unit is seconds.

log

syntax: stats.log(stats_name)

Collect the specified(by stats_name) statistical information at the log phrase.

  • stats_name is one statistical name that add by stats.add_stats_config.
    if the stats_name is nil, log method will collect all the statistics that have been configured.

Simple Query

lua-resty-stats comes with a simple query page, which can be used in the following steps:

  • add location configuration to nginx.conf
location /stats {
    set $template_root /path/to/lua-resty-stats/view;
    content_by_lua_file '/path/to/lua-resty-stats/view/main.lua';
}
  • Access query page. eg. http://192.168.1.xxx/stats:

Simple Stats demo

You can include it in nginx.conf using the include directive. Such as: include /path/to/simple_stats.conf;
