HAProxy moduleedit

This module collects stats from HAProxy. It supports collection from using TCP sockets or HTTP with or without basic authentication.

To configure HAProxy to collect stats, you must enable the stats module, it can be done by enabling a TCP socket, or by adding an HTTP stats frontend.

Metricbeat can collect two metric sets from HAProxy, info and stats. info is not available when using HTTP stats frontend.

For example, to enable stats reporting via any local IP on port 14567, place this statement under the global or default section of the haproxy config:

 stats socket

You should use an internal private IP, or secure this with a firewall rule, so that only designated hosts can access this data.

To configure the HTTP stats frontend, a frontend with stats enabled has to be added. For example, to open this frontend to any IP on port 14567 with required authentication add this to the haproxy config:

 listen stats
   stats enable
   stats uri /stats
   stats auth admin:admin

The default metricsets are info`and `stat.


The HAProxy metricsets are tested with HAProxy versions from 1.6, 1.7 to 1.8.
