Collectd uptime 🔗
The Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector provides this integration as the
collectd/uptime monitor type by using the SignalFx Smart Agent Receiver.
Use this integration to send a single metric of the total number of seconds the host has been up, using the collectd uptime plugin.
After you’ve configured the integration, you can:
View metrics using the built-in dashboard. 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 Metric Finder and search for metrics sent by the monitor. For information about Metric Finder, see Use the Metric Finder.
Follow these steps to deploy the integration:
This monitor is available in the Smart Agent Receiver, which is part of the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector. The Smart Agent Receiver lets you use existing Smart Agent monitors as OpenTelemetry Collector metric receivers.
Using this monitor assumes that you have a configured environment with a functional Smart Agent release bundle on your system, which is already provided for
x86_64/amd64 Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector installation paths.
To activate this monitor in the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector, add the following to your configuration file:
receivers: smartagent/collectd/uptime: type: collectd/uptime ... # Additional config
To complete the integration, include the Smart Agent receiver using this monitor in a metrics pipeline. To do this, add the receiver to the service > pipelines > metrics > receivers section of your configuration file.
service: pipelines: metrics: receivers: [smartagent/collectd/uptime]
The following metrics are available for this integration.
