Apache Zookeeper πŸ”—

The Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector uses the Smart Agent receiver with the Apache Zookeeper monitor type to keep track of an Apache Zookeeper instance using the Zookeeper plugin.

This integration is only available on Kubernetes and Linux.

The plugin supports Zookeeper 3.4.0 and higher.

Benefits πŸ”—

After you configure the integration, you can access these features:

  • View metrics. You can create your own custom dashboards, and most monitors provide built-in dashboards as well. For information about dashboards, see View dashboards in Observability Cloud.

  • View a data-driven visualization of the physical servers, virtual machines, AWS instances, and other resources in your environment that are visible to Infrastructure Monitoring. For information about navigators, see Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring navigators.

  • Access the Metric Finder and search for metrics sent by the monitor. For information, see Use the Metric Finder.

Installation πŸ”—

Follow these steps to deploy this integration:

  1. Deploy the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector to your host or container platform:

  2. Configure the monitor, as described in the Configuration section.

  3. Restart the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector.

Configuration πŸ”—

To use this integration of a Smart Agent monitor with the Collector:

  1. Include the Smart Agent receiver in your configuration file.

  2. Add the monitor type to the Collector configuration, both in the receiver and pipelines sections.

Example πŸ”—

To activate this integration, add the following to your Collector configuration:

type: collectd/zookeeper
... # Additional config

Next, add the monitor to the service > pipelines > metrics > receivers section of your configuration file:

      receivers: [smartagent/zookeeper]

Configuration settings πŸ”—

The following table shows the configuration options for the Apache Zookeeper monitor:








This string contains a path to a python binary that you want to use to execute the Python code. If you don’t set it, the system uses a built-in runtime will be used. The string can include arguments to the binary.




This string specifies the host or IP address of the Apache Zookeeper node.




This value specifies the main port of the Zookeeper node.




If you provide this string, the system inserts it as the value of the plugin_instance dimension for emitted
