ElasticSearch metrics

Project description

https://travis-ci.org/ByteInternet/elasticmetrics.svg?branch=master

Collect performance metrics from ElasticSearch.

elasticmetrics is a Python library, designed to be used in different contexts and easy to integrate with other tools. Each step of data collection, transformation and reporting is defined in a separate reusable module:

  • collectors: abstract logic of collecting data.
  • metrics: abstract selecting and/or aggregating measurments (metrics)
  • formatters: transform metrics into other formats.
  • tool: combine the functionality of other modules to form a CLI application

Collectors

collectors.ElasticSearchCollector collects cluster and node stats by calling ElasticSearch APIs.

from elasticmetrics.collectors import ElasticSearchCollector

collector = ElasticSearchCollector('es.example.org')
collector.cluster_health()  # call _cluster/health, get ES cluster high level stats
collector.cluster_stats()  # call _cluster/stats, get ES cluster detailed stats
collector.node_stats()  # call _node/_local/stats, get ES node detailed stats


# collector supports detailed configurations like
# SSL, basic HTTP auth with UTF-8 credentials, and control over SSL context
insecure_ssl_collector = ElasticSearchCollector(
                            'localhost',
                            port=9200,
                            scheme='https',
                            user=u't€stuser',
                            password=u't€stpássword',
                            ssl_context={'no_cert_verify': True}
                         )

The returned values are exactly what’s returned from the Elasitc APIs.

Composing Features

Features from different modules can be composed together to achieve expected behavior.

from elasticmetrics.collectors import ElasticSearchCollector
from elasticmetrics.metrics import node_performance_metrics
from elasticmetrics.formatters import flatten_metrics

collector = ElasticSearchCollector(
                'es.example.org',
                scheme='https',
                user='testuser',
                password='testpassword'
            )
metrics_as_dotted_paths = flatten_metrics(
    node_performance_metrics(collector.node_stats()),
    prefix='example_es_server'
)
# metrics_as_dotted_paths can be pushed to a time series backend, like Graphite

Installation

$ pip install elasticmetrics

The only dependencies are Python 2.7+/3.4+ and setuptools.

However on development (and test) environment pytest, mock and pycodestyle are required.

# on dev/test env
$ pip install -r requirements/dev.txt

CLI Tool

elasticmetrics.tool is a CLI program that exposes some of the functionlaty of the library. It’ll execute when imported:

$ python -m elasticmetrics.tool --help

Elastic credentials can be passed as arguments, or set as environment variables. The example below will connect to ElasticSearch listening on the default port on localhost over HTTPS, and only collect node stats, and reads access credentials from environment variables.

$ export ELASTICSEARCH_USER="someuser"
$ export ELASTICSEARCH_PASSWORD="somepassword"
$ python -m elasticmetrics.tool --ssl --quiet --collect node_stats

Development

Tests

Tox is most convenient to run tests with, since it handles creation of virtualenvs

$ tox

Or when development dependencies are installed (preferably with a virtual environment), tests can be run by directly calling pytest.

$ pytest
