  • collectd

DESCRIPTION

Configure plugins for the collectd monitoring daemon.

USAGE

A number of recipes for standard plugins are available:

  • collectd_plugins::rrdtool - Output to RRD database files.
  • collectd_plugins::syslog Log errors to syslog.
  • collectd_plugins::cpu - CPU usage.
  • collectd_plugins::df - Free space on disks.
  • collectd_plugins::disk - Disk I/O operations.
  • collectd_plugins::interface - Network I/O operations.
  • collectd_plugins::memory - Memory usage.
  • collectd_plugins::swap - Swap file usage.

It is recommended to always enable the first two (rrdtool and syslog), but the others are entirely optional. For convenience, the collectd_plugins default recipe will include all of these.

Redis

A plugin to monitor Redis is included as collectd_plugins::redis. This recipe requires that you be using our redis cookbook for your servers, but can be trivially modified to look for a different recipe or role name.
