Monitoring S.M.A.R.T. Metrics with Prometheus and PMM

In his excellent blog post, Pavel Trukhanov showed the value of S.M.A.R.T. metric collections, so I wondered how hard would it be to enable their collection in Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM)

A quick search led me to the  text_collector plugin SmartMon, which can be easily integrated with any Prometheus Installation

For PMM, Vadim Yalovets recently showed how to do …

Extend Metrics for Percona Monitoring and Management Without Modifying Code

Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) provides an excellent solution for system monitoring. Sometimes, though, you’ll have the need for a metric that’s not present in the list of node_exporter metrics out of the box. In this post, we introduce a simple method and show how to extend the list of available metrics without modifying the node_exporter code. It’s based on the textfile collector.

Enable the textfile collector in pmm-client

This collector is not enabled by default in the latest version of pmm-client. So, first let’s enable the textfile collector.

# pmm-admin rm linux:metrics
OK, removed system pmm-client-hostname from monitoring.
# pmm-admin …

Great Metrics Graphs: Percona Monitoring and Management vs. gnuplot

In this blog post, we’ll checkout Percona Monitoring and Management vs. gnuplot when it comes to creating great metrics graphs. gnuplot is great, but PMM might provide graphs that are easier to read.

Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) is our free and open-source platform for managing and monitoring MySQL®, MariaDB® and MongoDB® performance, and is based on Grafana and Prometheus. It collects many kinds of metrics: OS metrics, MySQL metrics or MongoDB metrics. But there are times where you just ran a benchmark or collected your specific metrics and you want to visualize them.

For a long time, I used gnuplot for that (and I still like it). But when I was working on a recent blog post, one of my colleagues wrote me: …
