gangliaedit

  • Version: 3.0.2
  • Released on: 2016-07-14
  • Changelog
Note

This plugin does not ship with Logstash by default, but it is easy to install by running bin/logstash-plugin install logstash-output-ganglia.

This output allows you to pull metrics from your logs and ship them to ganglia’s gmond. This is heavily based on the graphite output.
