Icecast monitoring with Netdata

Monitors the number of listeners for active sources.


  • icecast version >= 2.4.0

It produces the following charts:

  1. Listeners in listeners
  • source number


Edit the python.d/icecast.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/icecast.conf

Needs only url to server's /status-json.xsl

Here is an example for remote server:

url : ''

Without configuration, module attempts to connect to http://localhost:8443/status-json.xsl
