fluent-plugin-cloudwatch, a plugin for Fluentd Build Status

Overview

AWS CloudWatch input plugin.

This plugin is simple. Get metrics from cloudwatch to fluentd.

  • Get metrics from AWS CloudWatch API.
    • Interval is 300(default. config=interval) seconds
    • Fetch datapoints in recent (interval * 10) seconds, and emit the latest datapoint to Fluentd data stream.

config: Complex metric_name

metric_name format is allowed as below.

  • MetricName
  • MetricName:Statstics

For example, this configuration fetches "Sum of RequestCount" and "Average of Latancy".

  metric_name RequestCount,Latency:Average
  statistics Sum

config: delayed_start

When config delayed_start is set true, plugin startup will be delayed in random seconds(0 ~ interval).

config: offset

unit: seconds.

flunet-plugin-cloudwatch gets metrics between now and period × 10 sec ago, and pick a latest value from that.

But the latest metric is insufficient for statistics Sum.

If offset is specified, fluent-plugin-cloudwatch gets metrics between offset sec ago and older.

config: emit_zero

If emit_zero is true and cloudwatch datapoint is empty, fluent-plugin-cloudwatch emits 0 instead of warn log "datapoint is empty".

config: record_attr

record_attr is an optional value injected into each records.

<source>
  @type cloudwatch
  tag  cloudwatch.rds
  aws_key_id  YOUR_AWS_KEY_ID
  aws_sec_key YOUR_AWS_SECRET_KEY
  cw_endpoint monitoring.ap-northeast-1.amazonaws.com

  namespace AWS/RDS
  metric_name CPUUtilization,FreeStorageSpace
  dimensions_name DBInstanceIdentifier
  dimensions_value rds01
  record_attr DBInstanceIdentifier:rds01
  # JSON format
  # record_attr {"DBInstanceIdentifier":"rds01"}
</source>

Example output.

2017-11-04T13:40:00+09:00       cloudwatch.rds      {"CPUUtilization":2.0,"DBInstanceIdentifier":"rds01"}
2013-11-04T13:40:00+09:00       cloudwatch.rds      {"FreeStorageSpace":104080723968.0,"DBInstanceIdentifier":"rds01"}
