Apache ZooKeeper monitoring with Netdata

ZooKeeper is a centralized service for maintaining configuration information, naming, providing distributed synchronization, and providing group services.

This module monitors one or more ZooKeeper servers, depending on your configuration.


  • Zookeeper with accessible client port
  • whitelisted mntr command


It produces the following charts:

  • Outstanding Requests in requests
  • Requests Latency in ms
  • Alive Connections in connections
  • Packets in pps
  • Open File Descriptors in file descriptors
  • Number of Nodes in nodes
  • Number of Watches in watches
  • Approximate Data Tree Size in KiB
  • Server State in state


Edit the go.d/zookeeper.conf configuration file using edit-config from the your agent's config directory, which is typically at /etc/netdata.

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

Needs only address to server's client port. Here is an example for 2 servers:

- name : local
address :
- name : remote
address :

For all available options, please see the module configuration file.


Check the module debug output. Run the following command as netdata user:

./go.d.plugin -d -m zookeeper
