BOINC monitoring with Netdata¶
Monitors task counts for the Berkely Open Infrastructure Networking Computing (BOINC) distributed computing client using the same RPC interface that the BOINC monitoring GUI does.
It provides charts tracking the total number of tasks and active tasks, as well as ones tracking each of the possible states for tasks.
python.d/boinc.conf configuration file using
edit-config from the your agent’s config
directory, which is typically at
cd /etc/netdata # Replace this path with your Netdata config directory, if different sudo ./edit-config python.d/boinc.conf
BOINC requires use of a password to access it’s RPC interface. You can
find this password in the
gui_rpc_auth.cfg file in your BOINC directory.
By default, the module will try to auto-detect the password by looking
/var/lib/boinc for this file (this is the location most Linux
distributions use for a system-wide BOINC installation), so things may
just work without needing configuration for the local system.
You can monitor remote systems as well:
remote: hostname: some-host password: some-password
