Resources plugin

The Resources plugin gathers information about the server resource usage: CPU, Memory, Network, Disk, Filesystem, OS.

How it works

The plugin gathers OS and hardware metrics from the underlying system. No configuration is required.

Metrics

CPU

Metric name Metric unit
CPU idle time average %
CPU idle time cpuX %
CPU idle time total %
CPU iowait time average %
CPU iowait time cpuX %
CPU iowait time total %
CPU nice time average %
CPU nice time cpuX %
CPU nice time total %
CPU system time average %
CPU system time cpuX %
CPU system time total %
CPU user time average %
CPU user time cpuX %
CPU user time total %
Processor load %
Total CPU usage %

Disk

Metric name Metric unit
All disks bytes per second b/s
All disks percent disk read time %
All disks percent disk time %
All disks percent disk write time %
All disks percent idle time %
All disks read bytes per second b/s
All disks reads per second %
All disks transfers per second trans/s
All disks write bytes per second b/s
All disks writes per second writes/s
Average disk seconds per read s
Average disk seconds per transfer s
Average disk seconds per write s
Current all disks queue length b

Besides the metrics listed above, there will also be metrics of the same type for every disk or device. Example: Disk write bytes per second /dev/docker-vg/root or Disk percent disk write time sda

Total swap space b
Used disk space on partition X b
Used number of inodes on partition X #
