Description

This is an Nginx module that provides access to stream server traffic status information. This is a porting version of the nginx-module-vts to the NGINX "stream" subsystem so as to support the same features in nginx-module-vts. It contains the current status such as servers, upstreams, user-defined filter.

First of all, It is required both the directive server_traffic_status_zone in stream block and stream_server_traffic_status_zone in http block, and then if the directive stream_server_traffic_status_display is set, can be access to as follows:

  • /status/format/json
    • If you request /status/format/json, will respond with a JSON document containing the current activity data for using in live dashboards and third-party monitoring tools.
  • /status/format/html
    • If you request /status/format/html, will respond with the built-in live dashboard in HTML that requests internally to /status/format/json.
  • /status/format/jsonp
    • If you request /status/format/jsonp, will respond with a JSONP callback function containing the current activity data for using in live dashboards and third-party monitoring tools.
  • /status/format/prometheus
    • If you request /status/format/prometheus, will respond with a prometheus document containing the current activity data.
  • /status/control
    • If you request /status/control, will respond with a JSON document after it reset or delete zones through a query string. See the Control.

JSON document contains as follows:

  • main
    • Basic version, uptime((nowMsec - loadMsec)/1000)
    • nowMsec, loadMsec is a millisecond.
  • connections
    • Total connections and requests(same as stub_status_module in NGINX)
  • streamServerZones
    • Traffic(in/out) and request and response counts and status(1xx,2xx...) hit ratio per each server zone
    • Total traffic(In/Out) and request and response counts(It zone name is *) and hit ratio
  • streamFilterZones
    • Traffic(in/out) and request and response counts and status(1xx,2xx...) hit ratio per each server zone filtered through the server_traffic_status_filter_by_set_key directive
    • Total traffic(In/Out) and request and response counts(It zone name is *) and hit ratio filtered through the server_traffic_status_filter_by_set_key directive
  • streamUpstreamZones
    • Traffic(in/out) and request and response counts per server in each upstream group
    • Current settings(weight, maxfails, failtimeout...) in nginx.conf

The directive stream_server_traffic_status_display_format sets the default ouput format that is one of json,jsonp,html,prometheus. (Default: json)

Traffic calculation as follows:

  • streamServerZones
    • in += requested_bytes
    • out += sent_bytes
  • streamFilterZones
    • in += requested_bytes via the filter
    • out += sent_bytes via the filter
  • streamUpstreamZones
    • in += requested_bytes via the ServerZones
    • out += sent_bytes via the ServerZones

All calculations are working in log processing phase of Nginx.

Caveats: this module relies on nginx logging system(NGX_STREAM_LOG_PHASE:last phase of the nginx stream), so the traffic may be in certain cirumstances different that real bandwidth traffic. Websocket, canceled downloads may be cause of inaccuracies. The working of the module doesn't matter at all whether the access_log directive "on" or "off". Again, this module works well on "access_log off".

Control

It is able to reset or delete traffic zones through a query string. The request responds with a JSON document.

  • URI Syntax
    • /{status_uri}/control?cmd={command}&group={group}&zone={name}
http {

    stream_server_traffic_status_zone;

    ...

    server {

        server_name example.org;

        ...


        location /status {
            stream_server_traffic_status_display;
            stream_server_traffic_status_display_format html;
        }
    }                                                                                                                                                                                           }
}

stream {
    geoip_country    /usr/share/GeoIP/GeoIP.dat;

    server_traffic_status_zone;

    server_traffic_status_filter_by_set_key $geoip_country_code country::*;

    server {

        ...

    }

    ...

}

If it set as above, then the control uri is like example.org/status/control.

The available request arguments are as follows:

  • cmd=<status|reset|delete>
    • status
      • It returns status of traffic zones to json format like status/format/json.
    • reset
      • It reset traffic zones without deleting nodes in shared memory.(= init to 0)
    • delete
      • It delete traffic zones in shared memory. when re-request recreated.
  • group=<server|filter|upstream@alone|upstream@group|*>
    • server
    • filter
    • upstream@alone
    • upstream@group
    • *

Limit

It is able to limit total traffic per each server by using the directive server_traffic_status_limit_traffic. It also is able to limit all traffic by using the directive server_traffic_status_limit_traffic_by_set_key. When the limit is exceeded, the server will return the 503 (Service Temporarily Unavailable) error in reply to a request. The return code can be changeable.

To limit traffic for server

stream {

    server_traffic_status_zone;

    ...

    server {

        listen 1981;

        server_traffic_status_limit_traffic in:64G;
        server_traffic_status_limit_traffic out:1024G;

        ...
    }
}
  • Limit in/out total traffic on the 1981/tcp to 64G and 1024G respectively.

To limit traffic for filter

stream {
    geoip_country /usr/share/GeoIP/GeoIP.dat;

    server_traffic_status_zone;

    ...

    server {

        listen 1981;

        server_traffic_status_filter_by_set_key $geoip_country_code country::$server_addr;
        server_traffic_status_limit_traffic_by_set_key FG@country::$server_addr@US out:1024G;
        server_traffic_status_limit_traffic_by_set_key FG@country::$server_addr@CN out:2048G;

        ...

    }
}
  • Limit total traffic of going into US and CN on the example.org to 1024G and 2048G respectively.

To limit traffic for upstream

stream {

    server_traffic_status_zone;

    ...

    upstream backend {
        server 10.10.10.17:80;
        server 10.10.10.18:80;
    }

    server {

        listen 1981;

        server_traffic_status_limit_traffic_by_set_key UG@backend@10.10.10.17:80 in:512G;
        server_traffic_status_limit_traffic_by_set_key UG@backend@10.10.10.18:80 in:1024G;
        proxy_pass backend;

        ...

    }
}
  • Limit total traffic of going into upstream backend on the 1981/tcp to 512G and 1024G per each peer.

Caveats: Traffic is the cumulative transfer or counter, not a bandwidth.

Use cases

It is able to calculate the user defined individual stats by using the directive server_traffic_status_filter_by_set_key.

To calculate traffic for individual country using GeoIP

stream {
    geoip_country /usr/share/GeoIP/GeoIP.dat;

    server_traffic_status_zone;
    server_traffic_status_filter_by_set_key $geoip_country_code country::*;

    ...

    server {

        ...

        server_traffic_status_filter_by_set_key $geoip_country_code country::$server_addr:$server_port;

    }
}
  • Calculate traffic for individual country of total server groups.
  • Calculate traffic for individual country of each server groups.

Basically, country flags image is built-in in HTML. The country flags image is enabled if the country string is included in group name which is second argument of server_traffic_status_filter_by_set_key directive.

Customizing

To customize after the module installed

  1. You need to change the {{uri}} string to your status uri in status.template.html as follows:
shell> vi share/status.template.html
var vtsStatusURI = "yourStatusUri/format/json", vtsUpdateInterval = 1000;
  1. And then, customizing and copy status.template.html to server root directory as follows:
shell> cp share/status.template.html /usr/share/nginx/html/status.html
  1. Configure nginx.conf
   server {
       server_name example.org;
       root /usr/share/nginx/html;

       # Redirect requests for / to /status.html
       location = / {
           return 301 /status.html;
       }

       location = /status.html {}

       # Everything beginning /status (except for /status.html) is
       # processed by the status handler
       location /status {
           stream_server_traffic_status_display;
           stream_server_traffic_status_display_format json;
       }
   }
  1. Access to your html.
http://example.org/status.html

To customize before the module installed

  1. Modify share/status.template.html (Do not change {{uri}} string)

  2. Recreate the ngx_http_stream_server_traffic_status_module_html.h as follows:

shell> cd util
shell> ./tplToDefine.sh ../share/status.template.html > ../src/ngx_http_stream_server_traffic_status_module_html.h
  1. Add the module to the build configuration by adding
--add-module=/path/to/nginx-module-sts
--add-module=/path/to/nginx-module-stream-sts
  1. Build the nginx binary.

  2. Install the nginx binary.
