has anyone got an idea of how to get Ntopng plugin to work with Atribe's grafana docker?  I have a separate offense box I'd like to pull in to this dashboard but I need to install it from the cli?  otherwise, grafana says i need a hosted instance, and i do not want any of the data leaving my network.  straight from the router to my unraid docker instance to visualize the data.

no one?  

 

how do you install plugins within Grafana using a docker instance ?  VM is straight forward cause you have a CLI

I am following this guide: https://www.reddit.com/r/unRAID/comments/7c2l2w/howto_monitor_unraid_with_grafana_influxdb_and/?st=jb3abuwu&sh=f67352a1


When trying to install telegraf I get the follow error:

Note: The guide says to remove the HOST_MOUNT_PREFIX container. I get the same error either way.

- The directory /mnt/user/appdata/telegraf/telegraf.conf/ does exist.
- There is no directory at /var/lib/docker/btrfs/subvolumes/f09b61c484be21f89dbe115d22d277060395df3e9b4f9ffc0ac87631831c4ded/etc/telegraf/ , there is file named, telegraf.conf, at the path.
 

Not sure why that is not becoming a directory.

I figured out a few things for telegraf:

 

Sensors (CPU temperature etc):

 

The docker image doesn't come with lm_sensors - you need to add it:


ssh into unRAID and do the following:

docker exec -ti telegraf /bin/sh

apk update

apk add lm_sensors

Edit your telegraf.conf and remove the # in front of [[inputs.sensors]]

 

Restart your telegraf docker.

 

Disk Serial Numbers:

 

I set up Influx/Grafana/Telegraf by following PanzerschreckGER's guide here:  https://www.reddit.com/r/unRAID/comments/7c2l2w/howto_monitor_unraid_with_grafana_influxdb_and/

An issue with this set up is you cannot monitor drives by Serial number, only sdx (these designations change on reboot requiring reconfiguration of Grafana) or mdx (this precludes monitoring Parity or cache drives).  I owe big thanks to danielnelson on the telegraf GIT who helped me figure out getting the HDD serial info working with diskio in telegraf

 

Diskio HDDs by Serial

 

Add the following path to the telegraf docker:

 

https://imgur.com/a/3qZXE

 

Then in telegraf.conf under:

[[inputs.diskio]]

put

device_tags = ["ID_SERIAL"]

 

Restart your telegraf docker

 

HDD Temps by Serial:

 

Change the extra parameters in hddtemp docker:

 

From:

 

Extra Parameters: -e HDDTEMP_ARGS="-q -d -F /dev/sd*"

 

To:

 

Extra Parameters: -e HDDTEMP_ARGS="-q -d -F /dev/disk/by-id/*"

 

Restart your hddtemp docker

I tried that on telegraf 1.4.3 but I'll only get

/bin/sh: 1: apk: not found

Do you know why?
Or what I can do to get apk to run?

 

Thank you!

Okay I managed to fix the error.

 

I had to set the repository to telegraf:1.4.3-alpine not telegraf:1.4.3 as it was before

Has anyone setup a reverse proxy for Grafana?  I've found a solution in the tutorial on reddit but it doesn't work.

I'll quote it so people don't have to go searching.

 

If anyone is still stuck set the env variable for the root url in the container to:
root_url = %(protocol)s://%(domain)s:%(http_port)s/grafana

and then use the following for the nginx.conf:
location /grafana/ {
	proxy_pass http://IP_HERE:3000/;
}

This doesn't work for myself.  Anyone have a solution?

Just a small note that if there is a docker update you will have to perform the above steps again.  At least I did after the last docker update.

Is there a way to create a blank database.  I am trying to set this up with Home-Assistant but it requires the database to be setup already and I can't figure out how to do this in InfluxDB Docker.

 

I tried the following in terminal but it didn't create a database.

 

$ docker run --rm -e INFLUXDB_DB=home_assistant influxdb /init-influxdb.sh

Once the container is started you can get into the docker containers command line and then follow the instructions in the docs: https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v1.2/introduction/getting_started/#creating-a-database

Sorry i am still learning but how do you command line into a docker?

Well so I made the database using the command line but when i try to find the database in my appdata/influxdb folder it is not there; but it is there when i use SHOW DATABASE from the command line.   

 

Edit: Nevermind I also figured this out.  My home-assistant had to point to my IP address rather than localhost.   Then it was created in my appdata/influxdb

Hello all. 

First of all, thanks for this docker, it works great! I've now got this sweet monitor running on a screen in my serverroom.

 

Thanks to panzerschrek for the instructions! link; https://www.reddit.com/r/unRAID/comments/7c2l2w/howto_monitor_unraid_with_grafana_influxdb_and/

 

 

So .. I was googling a bit, and thought about monitoring my dd-wrt router at home, considering I'm on a metered mobile connection at the moment and would like to know about my traffic when things are behaving slow and latency spikes. 

I found this project; https://github.com/trevorndodds/dd-wrt-grafana

Seems to check all the boxes for what I would like to monitor. 

I've done all the steps, making sure the crontasks are running as they should, doublechecked all my .sh scripts etc. So the router is behaving as it should. 

Now to the issue.. 

If I understand it correctly it needs a graphite datasource to dump data to ? (as for the Unraid monitoring I'm already using, Telegraf pushes data to influxdb and grafana is presenting it right?)

Problem is that i cannot create a graphite datasource, I just get a http 404 error:

image.png.9dc735b2768a2c550504dc02984bb3f5.png

 

Any ideas ? 

Last step is importing a json which creates the dashboard, but it will not work without a datasource (obviously :))

I also got started using this based on the Reddit thread https://www.reddit.com/r/unRAID/comments/7c2l2w/howto_monitor_unraid_with_grafana_influxdb_and/

 

This is really great, and the FAQ on that thread is super helpful.  I've got some nice graphs going including disk and system temperatures, cpu and network activity, etc.

 

Try to guess when I did my parity check.

Now I want to log the load on my UPS to get an idea of power consumption over time of my server rack.  There's probably an efficient way to do this, but I'm just not sure what to do.

 

As an example, here's what 'apcaccess' puts out:

root@Tower:~# apcaccess 
APC      : 001,032,0751
DATE     : 2018-04-08 21:19:38 -0700  
HOSTNAME : Tower
VERSION  : 3.14.14 (31 May 2016) slackware
UPSNAME  : Tower
CABLE    : USB Cable
DRIVER   : USB UPS Driver
UPSMODE  : Stand Alone
STARTTIME: 2018-04-08 21:10:06 -0700  
MODEL    : CP1500PFCLCD
STATUS   : ONLINE 
LINEV    : 120.0 Volts
LOADPCT  : 8.0 Percent
BCHARGE  : 100.0 Percent
TIMELEFT : 94.0 Minutes
MBATTCHG : 10 Percent
MINTIMEL : 10 Minutes
MAXTIME  : 0 Seconds
OUTPUTV  : 120.0 Volts
DWAKE    : -1 Seconds
LOTRANS  : 88.0 Volts
HITRANS  : 139.0 Volts
ALARMDEL : 30 Seconds
NUMXFERS : 0
TONBATT  : 0 Seconds
CUMONBATT: 0 Seconds
XOFFBATT : N/A
SELFTEST : NO
STATFLAG : 0x05000008
SERIALNO : 000000000000
NOMINV   : 120 Volts
NOMPOWER : 900 Watts
END APC  : 2018-04-08 21:19:39 -0700  

Here is what's shown in the UPS Settings plugin:

5acaf4cd38348_ScreenShot2018-04-08at10_05_09PM.thumb.png.0e01dd9f700a5369c3436cf5148d501f.png

 

Interestingly this displays the load in Watts, but none of the data I can get out of any of the UPS tools display the current load.  I can only assume that I'd need to calculate the actual load in Watts from LOAD = LOADPCT * NOMPOWER * ( LINEV / NOMINV )

 

So what's the best way to get this data into telegraf?

 

The two things I can think of are:

1. have something inside the telegraf docker call the 'apcaccess' command and parse the result

2. have something inside the telegraf docker parse the data from some existing log file (if it exists)

 

To do #1 (run command to get data) I think I'd need to grant more access to telegraf, which I'm not sure I should do.  It already has read access to '/' mounted at '/rootfs' but it can't execute commands on the root file system.

root@Tower:~# docker exec -ti telegraf /bin/sh
/ # /rootfs/sbin/apcaccess 
/bin/sh: /rootfs/sbin/apcaccess: not found
/ # ls /rootfs/sbin/apc*
/rootfs/sbin/apcaccess  /rootfs/sbin/apctest    /rootfs/sbin/apcupsd

So it can see it, but not execute it.

 

To do #2 (log from a file) I think I'd need to turn on logging for apcupsd.  I looked into this, and it can be done.

1. open /etc/apcupsd/apcupsd.conf in an editor
2. change STATTIME to '1' (or any number other than zero, this is the logging time interval in seconds)
3. change LOGSTATS to 'on'
4. make the output "status" log file exist with `touch /var/log/apcupsd.status`
5. restart apcupsd with `/etc/rc.d/rc.apcupsd restart`

 

The nice thing is that /var/log/apcupsd.status gets recycled on every log write, meaning it is only as long as one dataset, rather than turning into an ever-expanding logfile. The only problem is that after I do this, my syslog gets spammed with UPS data.  I'm not sure how to prevent that.

 

I was going to look into how to use [[inputs.logparser]] in telegraf to grab data from that log file, but I turned the logging back off due to the syslog issue.

 

So I'm not sure what the right way to do this is.  Any ideas?

Hi folks, I'm trying to pull my Plex data into my Grafana dashboard (via InfluxDB). I found this script which looks promising (https://github.com/barrycarey/Plex-Data-Collector-For-InfluxDB), however I can't figure out if there is a way to use it. I tried installing it in MyScripts only to realize that unRAID doesn't have Python3 built in. I then tried to use this dockerized version, but I can't figure out how to make it work as the docker container can't seem to find the script (though I've mapped it as the error messages suggest). Any ideas how I can accomplish this, or other ideas about pulling Plex data into Grafana? Many thanks!

Just to follow up, I installed Python3 through NerdPack and have been able to run jobs with it. The issue now is that I can’t figure out how to get Python to access (and write into) the dockerized Influxdb database. Any ideas?

You must not have downloaded the telegraf.conf file and placed it at /mnt/user/appdata/telegraf/telegraf.conf. If you didn't do that docker created a folder at that location. Simply delete the folder and follow the instructions at the top of the config page. I've pasted them here for simplicity.

 

This version of telegraf requires you to manually place a config file at /mnt/user/appdata/telegraf/telegraf.conf The container will not start without it.

The default telegraf.conf file can be downloaded at https://github.com/influxdata/telegraf/blob/master/etc/telegraf.conf. If you would prefer not to use a config file you can search for untelegraf in community apps for a version that only uses environment variables.

I also got started using this based on the Reddit thread https://www.reddit.com/r/unRAID/comments/7c2l2w/howto_monitor_unraid_with_grafana_influxdb_and/

 

This is really great, and the FAQ on that thread is super helpful.  I've got some nice graphs going including disk and system temperatures, cpu and network activity, etc.

 

Try to guess when I did my parity check.

Now I want to log the load on my UPS to get an idea of power consumption over time of my server rack.  There's probably an efficient way to do this, but I'm just not sure what to do.

 

As an example, here's what 'apcaccess' puts out:


root@Tower:~# apcaccess 
APC      : 001,032,0751
DATE     : 2018-04-08 21:19:38 -0700  
HOSTNAME : Tower
VERSION  : 3.14.14 (31 May 2016) slackware
UPSNAME  : Tower
CABLE    : USB Cable
DRIVER   : USB UPS Driver
UPSMODE  : Stand Alone
STARTTIME: 2018-04-08 21:10:06 -0700  
MODEL    : CP1500PFCLCD
STATUS   : ONLINE 
LINEV    : 120.0 Volts
LOADPCT  : 8.0 Percent
BCHARGE  : 100.0 Percent
TIMELEFT : 94.0 Minutes
MBATTCHG : 10 Percent
MINTIMEL : 10 Minutes
MAXTIME  : 0 Seconds
OUTPUTV  : 120.0 Volts
DWAKE    : -1 Seconds
LOTRANS  : 88.0 Volts
HITRANS  : 139.0 Volts
ALARMDEL : 30 Seconds
NUMXFERS : 0
TONBATT  : 0 Seconds
CUMONBATT: 0 Seconds
XOFFBATT : N/A
SELFTEST : NO
STATFLAG : 0x05000008
SERIALNO : 000000000000
NOMINV   : 120 Volts
NOMPOWER : 900 Watts
END APC  : 2018-04-08 21:19:39 -0700  

Here is what's shown in the UPS Settings plugin:

Interestingly this displays the load in Watts, but none of the data I can get out of any of the UPS tools display the current load.  I can only assume that I'd need to calculate the actual load in Watts from LOAD = LOADPCT * NOMPOWER * ( LINEV / NOMINV )

 

So what's the best way to get this data into telegraf?

 

The two things I can think of are:

1. have something inside the telegraf docker call the 'apcaccess' command and parse the result

2. have something inside the telegraf docker parse the data from some existing log file (if it exists)

 

To do #1 (run command to get data) I think I'd need to grant more access to telegraf, which I'm not sure I should do.  It already has read access to '/' mounted at '/rootfs' but it can't execute commands on the root file system.


root@Tower:~# docker exec -ti telegraf /bin/sh
/ # /rootfs/sbin/apcaccess 
/bin/sh: /rootfs/sbin/apcaccess: not found
/ # ls /rootfs/sbin/apc*
/rootfs/sbin/apcaccess  /rootfs/sbin/apctest    /rootfs/sbin/apcupsd

So it can see it, but not execute it.

 

To do #2 (log from a file) I think I'd need to turn on logging for apcupsd.  I looked into this, and it can be done.

1. open /etc/apcupsd/apcupsd.conf in an editor
2. change STATTIME to '1' (or any number other than zero, this is the logging time interval in seconds)
3. change LOGSTATS to 'on'
4. make the output "status" log file exist with `touch /var/log/apcupsd.status`
5. restart apcupsd with `/etc/rc.d/rc.apcupsd restart`

 

The nice thing is that /var/log/apcupsd.status gets recycled on every log write, meaning it is only as long as one dataset, rather than turning into an ever-expanding logfile. The only problem is that after I do this, my syslog gets spammed with UPS data.  I'm not sure how to prevent that.

 

I was going to look into how to use [[inputs.logparser]] in telegraf to grab data from that log file, but I turned the logging back off due to the syslog issue.

 

So I'm not sure what the right way to do this is.  Any ideas?

 

Have you figured this out yet?

Also having this issue. All other metrics still work, but the query for Uptime returns 0 every time.

 

Looks like the very latest telegraf update has fixed this issue.
