LizardFS in Grafana

This plugin/script for Telegraf will collect the metrics from LizardFS and stores it into InfluxDB, then you can view your metrics in Grafana on a templated dashboard.


The puppet-lizardfs module lets you use Puppet to install and configure LizardFS automatically.

You can configure with puppet-lizardfs:

  • The LizardFS master (ready for High-availability with tools like keepalived or Pacemaker. Check out the explanation below)
  • The LizardFS chunkserver
  • The LizardFS metalogger
  • The LizardFS client and mount points
