Disk I/O Log Based Metrics

The disk input plugin, gathers the information about the disk throughput of the running system every certain interval of time and reports them.

The Disk I/O metrics plugin creates metrics that are log-based (I.e. JSON payload). If you are looking for Prometheus-based metrics please see the Node Exporter Metrics input plugin.

Configuration Parameters

The plugin supports the following configuration parameters:

Getting Started

In order to get disk usage from your system, you can run the plugin from the command line or through the configuration file:

Command Line

$ calyptia-fluent-bit -i disk -o stdout
Calyptia Fluent Bit 20.10.03

[2017/01/28 16:58:16] [ info] [engine] started
[0] disk.0: [1485590297, {"read_size"=>0, "write_size"=>0}]
[1] disk.0: [1485590298, {"read_size"=>0, "write_size"=>0}]
[2] disk.0: [1485590299, {"read_size"=>0, "write_size"=>0}]
[3] disk.0: [1485590300, {"read_size"=>0, "write_size"=>11997184}]

Configuration File

In your main configuration file append the following Input & Output sections:

    Name          disk
    Tag           disk
    Interval_Sec  1
    Interval_NSec 0
    Name   stdout
    Match  *

Note: Total interval (sec) = Interval_Sec + (Interval_Nsec / 1000000000).

e.g. 1.5s = 1s + 500000000ns
