Configuring the agent to monitor Couchbase
1. Configure /etc/sd-agent/conf.d/couchbase.yaml
- server: http://localhost:8091
- If your DB requires additional authentication, you wish to specify a timeout or fine tune other details, amend the config file as necessary.
2. Restart the agent
sudo /etc/init.d/sd-agent restart
Verifying the configuration
Execute info to verify the configuration with the following:
sudo /etc/init.d/sd-agent info
If the agent has been configured correctly you’ll see an output such as:
couchbase ----- - instance #0 [OK] - Collected 30 metrics & 0 events
Click the name of your server from the Devices list in your Server Density account then go to the Metrics tab. Click the + Graph button on the right then choose the Couchbase metrics to display the graphs. The metrics will also be available to select when building dashboard graphs.
