Traefik monitoring with Netdata

Traefik is a leading modern reverse proxy and load balancer that makes deploying microservices easy. .

This module will monitor one or more Traefik instances, depending on your configuration.

Requirements

Metrics

Current implementation collects only entrypoint metrics.

All metrics have "vcsa." prefix.

MetricScopeDimensionsUnits
entrypoint_requestsentrypoint, protocol1xx, 2xx, 3xx, 4xx, 5xxrequests/s
entrypoint_request_duration_averageentrypoint, protocol1xx, 2xx, 3xx, 4xx, 5xxmilliseconds
entrypoint_open_connectionsentrypoint, protocola dimension per HTTP methodconnections

Configuration

Edit the go.d/traefik.conf configuration file using edit-config from the Netdata config directory, which is typically at /etc/netdata.

cd /etc/netdata # Replace this path with your Netdata config directory
sudo ./edit-config go.d/traefik.conf

Needs only url to server's /metrics endpoint. Here is an example for 2 servers:

jobs:
- name: local
url: http://127.0.0.1:8082/metrics

- name: remote
url: http://203.0.113.10:8082/metrics

For all available options please see module configuration file.

Troubleshooting

To troubleshoot issues with the traefik collector, run the go.d.plugin with the debug option enabled. The output should give you clues as to why the collector isn't working.

  • Navigate to the plugins.d directory, usually at /usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/. If that's not the case on your system, open netdata.conf and look for the plugins setting under [directories].

    cd /usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/
  • Switch to the netdata user.

    sudo -u netdata -s
  • Run the go.d.plugin to debug the collector:

    ./go.d.plugin -d -m traefik
