Plugins and Metrics

There are several plugins, usually mapping to the ceph command line tools.

Find below a list of the available plugins and the metrics they publish.

  • ceph_monitor_plugin
    • ceph-<cluster>.mon.gauge.number (total number of monitors)
    • ceph-<cluster>.mon.gauge.quorum (number of monitors in quorum)
  • ceph_osd_plugin
    • ceph-<cluster>.osd.gauge.up (number of osds 'up')
    • ceph-<cluster>.osd.gauge.down (number of osds 'down')
    • ceph-<cluster>.osd.gauge.in (number of osds 'in')
    • ceph-<cluster>.osd.gauge.out (number of osds 'out')
  • ceph_pool_plugin
    • ceph-<cluster>.pool-<name>.gauge.read_bytes_sec (per pool read bytes/sec)
    • ceph-<cluster>.pool-<name>.gauge.write_bytes_sec (per pool write bytes/sec)
    • ceph-<cluster>.pool-<name>.gauge.op_per_sec (per pool iops)
    • ceph-<cluster>.pool-<name>.gauge.bytes_used (per pool bytes used)
    • ceph-<cluster>.pool-<name>.gauge.kb_used (per pool KBytes used)
    • ceph-<cluster>.pool-<name>.gauge.objects (per pool number of objects)
    • ceph-<cluster>.cluster.gauge.total_avail (cluster space available)
    • ceph-<cluster>.cluster.gauge.total_space (cluster total raw space)
    • ceph-<cluster>.cluster.gauge.total_used (cluster raw space used)
  • ceph_pg_plugin
    • ceph-<cluster>.pg.gauge.<state> (number of pgs in <state>)
    • ceph-<cluster>.osd-<id>.gauge.fs_commit_latency (fs commit latency for osd)
    • ceph-<cluster>.osd-<id>.gauge.apply_commit_latency (apply commit latency for osd)
    • ceph-<cluster>.osd-<id>.gauge.kb_used (kb used by osd)
    • ceph-<cluster>.osd-<id>.gauge.kb (total space of osd)
  • ceph_latency_plugin
    • ceph-<cluster>.cluster.gauge.avg_latency (avg cluster latency)
    • ceph-<cluster>.cluster.gauge.max_latency (max cluster latency)
    • ceph-<cluster>.cluster.gauge.min_latency (min cluster latency)
    • ceph-<cluster>.cluster.gauge.stddev_latency (stddev of cluster latency)

Requirements

It assumes an existing installation of collectd - check docs for details.

If you want to publish to graphite, configure the write_graphite collectd plugin.

And you might want the awesome grafana too, which provides awesome displays.

Setup and Configuration

The example configuration(s) below assume the plugins to be located under /usr/lib/collectd/plugins/ceph.

If you're under ubuntu, consider installing from this ppa.

Each plugin should have its own config file, under /etc/collectd/conf.d/<pluginname>.conf, which should follow something similar to:

# cat /etc/collectd/conf.d/ceph_pool.conf

<LoadPlugin "python">
    Globals true
</LoadPlugin>

<Plugin "python">
    ModulePath "/usr/lib/collectd/plugins/ceph"

    Import "ceph_pool_plugin"

    <Module "ceph_pool_plugin">
        Verbose "True"
        Cluster "ceph"
        Interval "60"
        TestPool "test"
    </Module>
</Plugin>

Puppet

If you use puppet for configuration, then try this excelent collectd module.

It has plenty of docs on how to use it, but for our specific plugins:

  collectd::plugin::python { 'ceph_pool':
    modulepath => '/usr/lib/collectd/plugins/ceph',
    module     => 'ceph_pool_plugin',
    config     => {
      'Verbose'  => 'true',
      'Cluster'  => 'ceph',
      'Interval' => 60,
      'TestPool' => 'test',
    },
  }

Docker

Check this repo for a nice docker setup to run collectd-ceph (thanks to Ian Babrou).
