Plugin helpers

Fluent::Plugin::CalyptiaMonitoringInput

<cloud_monitoring> section (required) (single)

Configuration

parameter type description default
endpoint string (optional) The endpoint for Monitoring API HTTP request, e.g. http://example.com/api "https://cloud-api.calyptia.com"
api_key string (required) The API KEY for Monitoring API HTTP request
rate time (optional) Emit monitoring values interval. (minimum interval is 30 seconds.) 30
pending_metrics_size size (optional) Setup pending metrics capacity size 100
fluentd_conf_path string (optional) Specify Fluentd config file path for RPC not to be available case nil

Example

This plugin works well with cmetrics Fluentd extension for metrics plugin.

And enabling RPC and configDump endpoint is required if sending Fluentd configuration:

<system>
# If users want to use multi workers feature which corresponds to logical number of CPUs, please comment out this line.
#  workers "#{require 'etc'; Etc.nprocessors}"
  enable_input_metrics true
  # This record size measuring settings might impact for performance.
  # Please be careful for high loaded environment to turn on.
  enable_size_metrics true
  <metrics>
    @type cmetrics
  </metrics>
  rpc_endpoint 127.0.0.1:24444
  enable_get_dump true
</system>
# And other configurations....

## Fill YOUR_API_KEY with your Calyptia API KEY
<source>
  @type calyptia_monitoring
  @id input_caplyptia_moniroting
  <cloud_monitoring>
    # endpoint http://development-environment-or-production.fqdn:5000
    api_key YOUR_API_KEY
    rate 30
    pending_metrics_size 100 # Specify capacity for pending metrics
  </cloud_monitoring>
  <storage>
    @type local
    path /path/to/agent/accessible/directories/agent_states
  </storage>
</source>

And also retrieving configuration from actual file is also supported:

<system>
# If users want to use multi workers feature which corresponds to logical number of CPUs, please comment out this line.
#  workers "#{require 'etc'; Etc.nprocessors}"
  enable_input_metrics true
  # This record size measuring settings might impact for performance.
  # Please be careful for high loaded environment to turn on.
  enable_size_metrics true
  <metrics>
    @type cmetrics
  </metrics>
</system>
# And other configurations....

## Fill YOUR_API_KEY with your Calyptia API KEY
<source>
  @type calyptia_monitoring
  @id input_caplyptia_moniroting
  <cloud_monitoring>
    # endpoint http://development-environment-or-production.fqdn:5000
    api_key YOUR_API_KEY
    rate 30
    pending_metrics_size 100 # Specify capacity for pending metrics
    fluentd_conf_path /path/to/fluent.conf
  </cloud_monitoring>
  <storage>
    @type local
    path /path/to/agent/accessible/directories/agent_states
  </storage>
</source>

Note: We recommend to use RPC version due to some circumstances should differ between a loaded configuration and a saved Fluentd configuration. This is because calling dumping config RPC feature can obtain from configuration contents which are loaded on memory. But retrieving configuration from the specified file is just read from the file contents and it cannot handle/retrieve loaded configurations on Fluentd. When users just update their Fluentd configurations and forgot to restart/reload their Fluentd instances, loaded configurations differ from just edited ones.
