Elasticsearch graphite plugin
This plugin creates a little push service, which regularly updates a graphite host with indices stats and nodes stats. In case you are running a cluster, these datas are always only pushed from the master node.
As plugins (except site plugins) cannot be automatically installed from github currently you need to build the plugin yourself (takes half a minute including an integrations test).
git clone https://github.com/spinscale/elasticsearch-graphite-plugin cd elasticsearch-graphite-plugin mvn package /path/to/elasticsearch/bin/plugin -install graphite -url file:///absolute/path/to/current/dir/target/releases/elasticsearch-plugin-graphite-0.2-SNAPSHOT.zip
Configuration is possible via three parameters:
metrics.graphite.host: The graphite host to connect to (default: none)
metrics.graphite.port: The port to connect to (default: 2003)
metrics.graphite.every: The interval to push data (default: 1m)
metrics.graphite.prefix: The metric prefix that's sent with metric names (default: elasticsearch.your_cluster_name)
metrics.graphite.exclude: A regular expression allowing you to exclude certain metrics (note that the node does not start if the regex does not compile)
metrics.graphite.include: A regular expression to explicitely include certain metrics even though they matched the exclude (note that the node does not start if the regex does not compile)
Check your elasticsearch log file for a line like this after adding the configuration parameters below to the configuration file

- No really nice cluster support yet (needed it for a single instance system)
- Not extensively tested
- In case of a master node failover, counts are starting from 0 again (in case you are wondering about spikes)
