CEPH monitoring with Netdata

Monitors the ceph cluster usage and consumption data of a server, and produces:

  • Cluster statistics (usage, available, latency, objects, read/write rate)
  • OSD usage
  • OSD latency
  • Pool usage
  • Pool read/write operations
  • Pool read/write rate
  • number of objects per pool


  • rados python module
  • Granting read permissions to ceph group from keyring file
# chmod 640 /etc/ceph/ceph.client.admin.keyring


Edit the python.d/ceph.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, if different
sudo ./edit-config python.d/ceph.conf


config_file: '/etc/ceph/ceph.conf'
keyring_file: '/etc/ceph/ceph.client.admin.keyring'
