SolrCloud πŸ”—

Description πŸ”—

The Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector provides this integration as the SolrCloud monitor type for the Smart Agent Receiver.

Use this integration to monitor Solr instances. You can collect metrics only when the instance is running in SolrCloud mode.


This monitor is not available on Windows as collectd plugins are only supported in Linux and Kubernetes.

Benefits πŸ”—

After you configure the integration, you can access these features:

  • View metrics. You can create your own custom dashboards, and most monitors provide built-in dashboards as well. For information about dashboards, see View dashboards in Observability Cloud.

  • View a data-driven visualization of the physical servers, virtual machines, AWS instances, and other resources in your environment that are visible to Infrastructure Monitoring. For information about navigators, see Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring navigators.

  • Access the Metric Finder and search for metrics sent by the monitor. For information, see Use the Metric Finder.

Installation πŸ”—

Follow these steps to deploy this integration:

  1. Deploy the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector to your host or container platform:

  2. Configure the monitor, as described in the Configuration section.

  3. Restart the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector.

Configuration πŸ”—

To use this integration of a Smart Agent monitor with the Collector:

  1. Include the Smart Agent receiver in your configuration file.

  2. Add the monitor type to the Collector configuration, both in the receiver and pipelines sections.


Provide a SolrCloud monitor entry in your Collector or Smart Agent (deprecated) configuration. Use the appropriate form for your agent type.

Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector πŸ”—

To activate this monitor in the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector, add the following to your agent configuration:

To complete the monitor activation, you must also include the smartagent/solr receiver item in a metrics pipeline. To do this, add the receiver item to the service > pipelines > metrics > receivers section of your configuration file. For example:

      receivers: [smartagent/solr]

Smart Agent πŸ”—

To activate this monitor in the Smart Agent, add the following to your agent configuration:

monitors:  # All monitor config goes under this key
  - type: collectd/solr
    ...  # Additional config

See Install and configure the SignalFx Smart Agent for an autogenerated example of a YAML configuration file, with default values where applicable.
