Zookeeper by HTTP

Overview

This template is designed for the effortless deployment of Zookeeper monitoring by Zabbix via HTTP and doesn't require any external scripts.

Requirements

Zabbix version: 6.4 and higher.

Tested versions

This template has been tested on:

  • Apache Zookeeper, version 3.6+, 3.8+

Configuration

Zabbix should be configured according to the instructions in the Templates out of the box section.

Setup

This template works with standalone and cluster instances. Metrics are collected from each Zookeeper node by requests to AdminServer. By default AdminServer is enabled and listens on port 8080. You can enable or configure AdminServer parameters according official documentations. Don't forget to change macros {$ZOOKEEPER.COMMAND_URL}, {$ZOOKEEPER.PORT}, {$ZOOKEEPER.SCHEME}.

Macros used

Name Description Default
{$ZOOKEEPER.PORT}

The port the embedded Jetty server listens on (admin.serverPort).

8080
{$ZOOKEEPER.COMMAND_URL}

The URL for listing and issuing commands relative to the root URL (admin.commandURL).

commands
{$ZOOKEEPER.SCHEME}

Request scheme which may be http or https

http
{$ZOOKEEPER.FILE_DESCRIPTORS.MAX.WARN}

Maximum percentage of file descriptors usage alert threshold (for trigger expression).

85
{$ZOOKEEPER.OUTSTANDING_REQ.MAX.WARN}

Maximum number of outstanding requests (for trigger expression).

10
{$ZOOKEEPER.PENDING_SYNCS.MAX.WARN}

Maximum number of pending syncs from the followers (for trigger expression).
