Plugin: python.d.plugin Module: icecast
This collector monitors Icecast listener counts.
It connects to an icecast URL and uses the
status-json.xsl endpoint to retrieve statistics.
This collector is supported on all platforms.
This collector supports collecting metrics from multiple instances of this integration, including remote instances.
Without configuration, the collector attempts to connect to http://localhost:8443/status-json.xsl
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 Icecast instance
These metrics refer to the entire monitored application.
This scope has no labels.

There are no alerts configured by default for this integration.
Icecast minimum version
Needs at least icecast version >= 2.4.0
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/icecast.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.
|update_every||Sets the default data collection frequency.||5||no|
|priority||Controls the order of charts at the netdata dashboard.||60000||no|
|autodetection_retry||Sets the job re-check interval in seconds.||0||no|
|penalty||Indicates whether to apply penalty to update_every in case of failures.||yes||no|
|name||Job name. This value will overwrite the ||no|
|url||The URL (and port) to the icecast server. Needs to also include ||http://localhost:8443/status-json.xsl||no|
|user||Username to use to connect to ||no|
|pass||Password to use to connect to ||no|

To troubleshoot issues with the
icecast 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 icecast debug trace
