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.



Current implementation collects only entrypoint metrics.


  • Processed HTTP requests, partitioned by code class in requests/s
  • Average HTTP request processing time, partitioned by code class in milliseconds
  • Open connections, partitioned by method in connections


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:

- name: local

- name: remote

For all available options please see module configuration file.


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.

  • First, navigate to your plugins directory, usually at /usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/. If that's not the case on your system, open netdata.conf and look for the setting plugins directory. Once you're in the plugin's directory, switch to the netdata user.
cd /usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/
sudo -u netdata -s
  • You can now run the go.d.plugin to debug the collector:
./go.d.plugin -d -m traefik
