Plugin: python.d.plugin Module: hddtemp
This collector monitors disk temperatures.
It uses the
hddtemp daemon to gather the metrics.
This collector is only supported on the following platforms:
This collector supports collecting metrics from multiple instances of this integration, including remote instances.
By default, this collector will attempt to connect to the
hddtemp daemon on
The default configuration for this integration does not impose any limits on data collection.
The default configuration for this integration is not expected to impose a significant performance impact on the system.
Metrics grouped by scope.
The scope defines the instance that the metric belongs to. An instance is uniquely identified by a set of labels.
Per HDD temperature instance
These metrics refer to the entire monitored application.
This scope has no labels.
|a dimension per disk
There are no alerts configured by default for this integration.
hddtemp in daemon mode
You can execute
hddtemp in TCP/IP daemon mode by using the
hddtemp -d would run the daemon, by default on port 7634.
The configuration file name for this integration is
You can edit the configuration file using the
edit-config script from the
Netdata config directory.
cd /etc/netdata 2>/dev/null || cd /opt/netdata/etc/netdata
sudo ./edit-config python.d/hddtemp.conf
There are 2 sections:
- Global variables
- One or more JOBS that can define multiple different instances to monitor.
The following options can be defined globally: priority, penalty, autodetection_retry, update_every, but can also be defined per JOB to override the global values.
Additionally, the following collapsed table contains all the options that can be configured inside a JOB definition.
Every configuration JOB starts with a
job_name value which will appear in the dashboard, unless a
name parameter is specified.
By default this collector will try to autodetect disks (autodetection works only for disk which names start with "sd"). However this can be overridden by setting the option
disks to an array of desired disks.
|Sets the default data collection frequency.
|Controls the order of charts at the netdata dashboard.
|Sets the job re-check interval in seconds.
|Indicates whether to apply penalty to update_every in case of failures.
|Job name. This value will overwrite the
job_name value. JOBS with the same name are mutually exclusive. Only one of them will be allowed running at any time. This allows autodetection to try several alternatives and pick the one that works.
|Array of desired disks to detect, in case their name doesn't start with
|The IP or HOSTNAME to connect to.
|The port to connect to.
A basic example configuration.
Custom disk names

Note: When you define multiple jobs, their names must be unique.

To troubleshoot issues with the
hddtemp collector, run the
python.d.plugin with the debug option enabled. The output
should give you clues as to why the collector isn't working.
Navigate to the
plugins.ddirectory, usually at
/usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/. If that's not the case on your system, open
netdata.confand look for the
Switch to the
sudo -u netdata -s
python.d.pluginto debug the collector:
./python.d.plugin hddtemp debug trace
