uWSGI Metrics

Collect and ship uWSGI server metrics to Logstash and Elasticsearch.

Metricbeat is a lightweight shipper that helps you monitor your uWSGI servers by collecting metrics from the uWSGI server. Configure Metricbeat using the pre-defined examples below to collect and ship uWSGI service metrics and statistics to Logstash or Elasticsearch.

Follow this step by step guide to start sending data from your system to Logit.io:

Step 1 - Install Metricbeat

To get started first follow the steps below:

Older versions can be found here metricbeat 7, metricbeat 6, metricbeat 5

Step 2 - Copy configuration file

The configuration file below is pre-configured to send data to your Logit.io Stack via Logstash.

Copy the configuration file below and overwrite the contents of metricbeat.yml.

###################### Logit.io Metricbeat Configuration #######################
# =========================== Modules configuration ============================

metricbeat.config.modules:
  # Glob pattern for configuration loading
  path: ${path.config}/modules.d/*.yml

  # Set to true to enable config reloading
  reload.enabled: false

  # Period on which files under path should be checked for changes
  #reload.period: 10s
# ======================= Elasticsearch template setting =======================
setup.template.settings:
  index.number_of_shards: 1
  index.codec: best_compression
  #_source.enabled: false

# ================================== Outputs ===================================
# ------------------------------ Logstash Output -------------------------------
<div class="sw-warning">
    <div>
        <img src="/images/source-wizard/warning-triangle.svg">
    </div>
    <div>
       <b>No input available! </b> Your stack is missing the required input for this data source <a href="#" onclick="Intercom('showNewMessage')" class="btn btn-info btn-sm">Talk to support to add the input</a>
    </div>
</div> 

Step 3 - Enable module

There are several built in metricbeat modules you can use. To enable the uWSGI module, run the following:

deb/rpm

metricbeat modules list
metricbeat modules enable uwsgi

macOS

./metricbeat modules list
./metricbeat modules enable uwsgi

Windows

PS > .\metricbeat.exe modules enable uwsgi

Step 4 - Configure module

Each module has its own configuration file where different metricsets can be enabled / disabled. Locate the configuration file for the uWSGI module.

deb/rpm /etc/metricbeat/modules.d/uwsgi.yml

mac/win ~/<EXTRACTED_ARCHIVE>/modules.d/uwsgi.yml

By default the status metricset is disabled. To enable or disable a metric simply comment or uncomment the line out.

- module: uwsgi
  # metricsets:
   # - status
  period: 10s
  hosts: ["tcp://127.0.0.1:9191"]

This module periodically fetches metrics from uWSGI servers.

Step 5 - Start Metricbeat

Start or restart metricbeat to apply the configuration changes.

Step 6 - Check Logit.io for your logs

Data should now have been sent to your Stack.

View my data

If you don't see logs take a look at How to diagnose no data in Stack below for how to diagnose common issues.

Step 7 - how to diagnose no data in Stack

If you don't see data appearing in your Stack after following the steps, visit the Help Centre guide for steps to diagnose no data appearing in your Stack or Chat to support now.

Step 8 - Compatibility

The uWSGI metricsets were tested with uWSGI 2.0.15 and are expected to work with all version >= 1.4.9

Step 9 - uWSGI Module Dashboard

The uWSGI module comes with predefined Kibana dashboards. To view your dashboards for any of your Logit.io stacks, launch Logs and choose Dashboards.
