[In Development] Monitoring Gearman

Configure the Server Density agent to monitor your Gearman service to:

• Collect important metrics, such as queued & running tasks
• Identify overall server slowdowns caused by the service

Note: This plugin is still in development and is not yet available to install. We will add new plugins to our release notes.

Monitored metrics

  • gearman.queued
  • gearman.running
  • gearman.unique_tasks
  • gearman.workers

Configuring the agent to monitor Gearman

1. Configure /etc/sd-agent/conf.d/gearmand.yaml


- server: localhost
port: 4730

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:

  - instance #0 [OK]
  - Collected 1 metrics & 3 service checks

Configuring graphs

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 Gearmand metrics to display the graphs. The metrics will also be available to select when building dashboard graphs.
