Gearman monitoring with Netdata

Monitors Gearman worker statistics. A chart is shown for each job as well as one showing a summary of all workers.

Note: Charts may show as a line graph rather than an area graph if you load Netdata with no jobs running. To change this go to “Settings” > “Which dimensions to show?” and select “All”.

Plugin can obtain data from tcp socket OR unix socket.

Requirement: Socket MUST be readable by netdata user.

It produces:

  • Workers queued
  • Workers idle
  • Workers running


Edit the python.d/gearman.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, if different
sudo ./edit-config python.d/gearman.conf
  name     : 'local'
  host     : 'localhost'
  port     : 4730

  # TLS information can be provided as well
  tls      : no
  cert     : /path/to/cert
  key      : /path/to/key

When no configuration file is found, module tries to connect to TCP/IP socket: localhost:4730.
