Configuration and Usage

Documentation

Global config

Global configuration files are described in snap's documentation. You have to add "memcache" section with following entries:

  • "server" - host:port of the memcached server. eg 127.0.0.1:11211
  • "proto" - Protocol to use to connect to Memcached. tcp, tcp4, or tcp6

See exemplary Global configuration files in examples/configs/.

Collected Metrics

List of collected metrics is described in METRICS.md.

Example

Example running memcache collector and writing data to a file.

Make sure that your $SNAP_PATH is set, if not:

$ export SNAP_PATH=<snapDirectoryPath>/build

Other paths to files should be set according to your configuration, using a file you should indicate where it is located.

In one terminal window, open the snap daemon (in this case with logging set to 1, trust disabled and global configuration saved in config.json ):

$ $SNAP_PATH/bin/snapd -l 1 -t 0 --config config.json

In another terminal window: Load memcache plugin

$ $SNAP_PATH/bin/snapctl plugin load snap-plugin-collector-memcache

See available metrics for your system

$ $SNAP_PATH/bin/snapctl metric list

Create a task manifest file (exemplary files in examples/tasks/):

{
    "version": 1,
    "schedule": {
        "type": "simple",
        "interval": "1s"
    },
    "workflow": {
        "collect": {
            "metrics": {
                "/raintank/memcache/*": {}
            },
            "process": null,
            "publish": [
                {
                    "plugin_name": "file",
                    "config": {
                        "file": "/tmp/published_memcache"
                    }
                }
            ]
        }
    }
}
