Hi everyone, I wanted to let you know about a new plugin. I wanted to start pulling statistics from the operating system and could not figure out how to get logstash/grock to parse some of the file formats. So, to avoid making Exec calls to ps, lsof, netstat, iostat and other tools. I wrote a plugin that would gather the raw data directly from the /proc directory
Currently I am parsing - hoping to add more
/proc/meminfo, vmstat, diskinfom, loadavg, mounts
I am right now considering:
- breaking this in to multiple plugins as some data does not change often while others do.
- changing the PID output to be multiple outputs rather then just 1 large doc
- adding more files
- Creating a sample Kibana dashboard to demo the data
I would love to hear some feed back about what you think of the plugin.
