Squid monitoring with Netdata

Monitors one or more squid instances depending on configuration.

It produces following charts:

  1. Client Bandwidth in kilobits/s

    • in
    • out
    • hits
  2. Client Requests in requests/s

    • requests
    • hits
    • errors
  3. Server Bandwidth in kilobits/s

    • in
    • out
  4. Server Requests in requests/s

    • requests
    • errors

Configuration#

Edit the python.d/squid.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/squid.conf
priority : 50000
local:
request : 'cache_object://localhost:3128/counters'
host : 'localhost'
port : 3128

Without any configuration module will try to autodetect where squid presents its counters data
