Configuration

Edit the go.d/vernemq.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
sudo ./edit-config go.d/vernemq.conf

Needs only url to server’s /metrics endpoint. Here is an example for 2 servers:

jobs:
  - name: local
    url: http://127.0.0.1:8888/metrics

  - name: remote
    url: http://203.0.113.10:8888/metrics

For all available options please see module configuration file.

Troubleshooting

Check the module debug output. Run the following command as netdata user:

./go.d.plugin -d -m vernemq
