procsys

Name

procsys - Plugin to monitor kernel sysctl data

Interpretation

The plugin will create multiple graphs for:

  • entropy

    Monitors the random entropy (for the kernel’s PRNG) available in the system.

  • open_files

    Monitors the file handles open in the kernel.

  • open_inodes

    Monitors the inodes open in the kernel.

Configuration

The only available configurations are the warning/critical limits for some of the fields. The following is the default configuration:

[procsys] env.entropy_warning 5% env.entropy_critical 2%

env.open_files_warning 92%
env.open_files_critical 98%
