Graphite Monitor Reporter Plugin

The Graphite Monitor Reporter Plugin contains information needed to push server monitoring metrics into a Graphite server.

The Graphite server host/port must be configured as well as the metric name prefix (e.g. "opendj.example.com"). Zero or more white or black list regexp based metric filters can be configured as well as the reporting interval.

The Graphite Monitor Reporter Plugin object inherits from Plugin.

excluded-metric-pattern

Synopsis

Zero or more regular expressions identifying metrics that should not be published. The metric name prefix must not be included in the filter. Exclusion patterns take precedence over inclusion patterns.

Default Value

None

Allowed Values

Any valid regular expression pattern which is supported by the java.util.regex.Pattern class (see https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/java/util/regex/Pattern.html for documentation about this class for Java SE 8).

graphite-server

Synopsis

The Graphite server address.

Description

When using an IPv6 address as the hostname, put brackets around the address as in "[IPv6Address]:port".

Default Value

None

Allowed Values

A host name or an IP address followed by a ":" and a port number.

Port number must be greater than 1 and less than 65535.

metric-name-prefix

Synopsis

The prefix that will be added to all metric names reported to Graphite.

Description

The prefix helps distinguish between metrics arriving from different instances of the same application, thereby allowing monitoring applications to monitor the entire service as well as drill-down to specific application instances. Consider including an identifier for the data center, the application type, and a unique identifier for the application instance in the prefix using a dot-separated structure. For example, 'ny.opendj.ds1' identifies the OpenDJ instance "ds1" in the New York data center.

Default Value

ds

Allowed Values

A string.

reporting-interval

Synopsis

The interval between successive publications of server metrics to Graphite.

Description

An interval in the range 10-60 seconds is recommended. Reducing the interval increases the accuracy of the metrics at the cost of network utilization.

Default Value

10s

Allowed Values

Lower limit: 1 seconds.

invoke-for-internal-operations

Synopsis

Indicates whether the plug-in should be invoked for internal operations.

Description

Any plug-in that can be invoked for internal operations must ensure that it does not create any new internal operatons that can cause the same plug-in to be re-invoked.
