Tor monitoring with Netdata

Connects to the Tor control port to collect traffic statistics.

Requirements

  • tor program
  • stem python package

It produces only one chart:

  1. Traffic

    • read
    • write

Configuration

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

Needs only control_port.

Here is an example for local server:

update_every : 1
priority : 60000
local_tcp:
name: 'local'
control_port: 9051
local_socket:
name: 'local'
control_port: '/var/run/tor/control'

prerequisite

Add to /etc/tor/torrc:

ControlPort 9051

For more options please read the manual.

Without configuration, module attempts to connect to 127.0.0.1:9051.
