Stats Collector 3.1
Stats Collector is a set of tools intended to get statistical values from remote nodes.
It is built under a distributed agent-manager model. RRDtool is used as database, so representation capabilities are bundled.
Although rrdUtils are not a requisite, they are used in some auxiliar tasks and using both tools is highly recommended.
gunzip -c rrdUtils-3.1.tar.gz | tar -xf -
gunzip -c stats-station-3.0.tar.gz | tar -xf -
./configure --with-statsdir=/stats --with-port=666
The -g flag creates graphs with the html pages, and reduces the number of error messages that haz_index will issue.
The only task that needs to be completed at this point is the periodic graphs generation by a crontab entry that calls the make_graphs.sh script.
Once we start the server using the provided initscript, we get the manager side ready.
gunzip -c stats-3.0.tar.gz | tar -xf -
./configure --with-host=central.node --with-port=666
With a crontab entry to execute the statlaunch script every 15 minutes, the whole system is up and running.
What's New in This Release:
· RPM and Debian packages are supplied, built using facilities already included in previous versons.
· The primary change is the modification of the default destination node into a simple non-qualified name, to ease deployments just adding a single CNAME.
· Also, a minimal configuration file to modify the destination host and port has been included.
