HAProxy stats plugin for collectd.

Project description

Python Package Version Documentation Status Build Status Code Climate Test Coverage

A plugin for collectd to gather metrics for a local HAProxy instance, with a focus on easy installation and configuration.

The project is on PyPI so installation is a simple pip command:

pip install collectd-haproxy


If collectd is running with a virtualenv activated (under an isolated supervisord setup, for instance) make sure the collectd-haproxy package is installed and available in the virtualenv’s module path or collectd will run into an ImportError.

In order to function properly, the local HAProxy instance will need to have the “stats socket” enabled, details about how to do that can be found here.


The most basic configuration is to specify where the HAProxy socket file is located:

LoadPlugin "python"

<Plugin python>
    Import "collectd_haproxy"

    <Module haproxy>
      Socket "/var/run/haproxy.sock"

For details on all of the options available, read the docs!
