Collector plugins

Navigate to the Ingestion Services > Collector tab to configure and enable Moogsoft Collector plugins. To enable a collector plugin, you must install the collector, select that collector in the Collector tab, and then select the plugin that you want to configure.

You can set up a collector plugin when you download a new collector, or any time thereafter when configuring an existing collector.

The Moogsoft Collector supports a number of plugins for ease of integration with AIOps software platforms. These plugins include: AppDynamics, Docker, HTTP Listener, MongoDB, New Relic, Prometheus Scrape, and Redis. Locate and click on the plugin name in the left nav for instructions on configuring these plugins.

The System plugin instructions are included here as it is currently the only plugin that will be configured and enabled by default immediately after installing a collector. All other plugins must be configured and enabled to begin collecting metrics.

System plugin

The System plugin observes server performance by collecting metrics for resources such as CPU, memory, disk, and network utilization.

This plugin is based on the vector.dev Host plugin. See Host metrics.

Note

By default, the System plugin is on for all new downloaded collectors.

Parameter configuration:

  1. From the System plugin Configuration tab, define the following System plugin parameters:

    • Metrics — Define the set of metrics Moogsoft collects by selecting option(s) from the dropdown menu: CPU | Disk | Filesystem | Load | Host | Memory

    • Scrape Interval (sec): — Set the frequency with which Moogsoft monitors and ingests metrics; the default is every 15 seconds.

  2. Toggle on the Enable option on when you are ready to start plugin data ingestion.
