RetroShare collector

Monitors application bandwidth, peers and DHT metrics.

This module will monitor one or more RetroShare applications, depending on your configuration.


This module produces the following charts:

  • Bandwidth in kilobits/s
  • Peers in peers
  • DHT in peers


Edit the python.d/retroshare.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/retroshare.conf

Here is an example for 2 servers:

url : 'http://localhost:9090'
user : "user"
password : "pass"

url : ''
user : "user"
password : "pass"


To troubleshoot issues with the retroshare module, run the python.d.plugin with the debug option enabled. The output will give you the output of the data collection job or error messages on why the collector isn't working.

First, navigate to your plugins directory, usually they are located under /usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/. If that's not the case on your system, open netdata.conf and look for the setting plugins directory. Once you're in the plugin's directory, switch to the netdata user.

cd /usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/
sudo su -s /bin/bash netdata

Now you can manually run the retroshare module in debug mode:

./python.d.plugin retroshare debug trace
