Plugin: python.d.plugin Module: gearman
Monitor Gearman metrics for proficient system task distribution. Track job counts, worker statuses, and queue lengths for effective distributed task management.
This collector connects to a Gearman instance via either TCP or unix socket.
This collector is supported on all platforms.
This collector supports collecting metrics from multiple instances of this integration, including remote instances.
When no configuration file is found, the collector tries to connect to TCP/IP socket: localhost:4730.
The default configuration for this integration does not impose any limits on data collection.
The default configuration for this integration is not expected to impose a significant performance impact on the system.
The gearman UNIX socket should have read permission for user netdata.
The configuration file name for this integration is
You can edit the configuration file using the
edit-config script from the
Netdata config directory.
cd /etc/netdata 2>/dev/null || cd /opt/netdata/etc/netdata
sudo ./edit-config python.d/gearman.conf
There are 2 sections:
The following options can be defined globally: priority, penalty, autodetection_retry, update_every, but can also be defined per JOB to override the global values.
Additionally, the following collapsed table contains all the options that can be configured inside a JOB definition.
Every configuration JOB starts with a
job_name value which will appear in the dashboard, unless a
name parameter is specified.
|Sets the default data collection frequency.
|Controls the order of charts at the netdata dashboard.
|Sets the job re-check interval in seconds.
|Indicates whether to apply penalty to update_every in case of failures.
|Job name. This value will overwrite the
job_name value. JOBS with the same name are mutually exclusive. Only one of them will be allowed running at any time. This allows autodetection to try several alternatives and pick the one that works.
|URL or IP where gearman is running.
|Port of URL or IP where gearman is running.
|Use tls to connect to gearman.
|Provide a certificate file if needed to connect to a TLS gearman instance.
|Provide a key file if needed to connect to a TLS gearman instance.
A basic host and port gearman configuration for localhost.
Note: When you define multiple jobs, their names must be unique.
Collecting metrics from local and remote instances.
Metrics grouped by scope.
The scope defines the instance that the metric belongs to. An instance is uniquely identified by a set of labels.
These metrics refer to the entire monitored application.
This scope has no labels.
Metrics related to Gearman jobs. Each job produces its own set of the following metrics.
This scope has no labels.
|Pending, Idle, Runnning
The following alerts are available:
|average number of queued jobs over the last 10 minutes
To troubleshoot issues with the
gearman collector, run the
python.d.plugin with the debug option enabled. The output
should give you clues as to why the collector isn’t working.
Navigate to the
plugins.d directory, usually at
/usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/. If that’s not the case on
your system, open
netdata.conf and look for the
plugins setting under
Switch to the
sudo -u netdata -s
python.d.plugin to debug the collector:
./python.d.plugin gearman debug trace
