Monitoring OMV with Grafana

  • I would like to setup a Grafana dashboard to monitor my OMV server. (on a docker container on my OMV instance)

    I'd like to monitor CPU, RAM and Hard Disk IO and Disk space.


    Which monitoring/reporting tools are already installed on OMV to send data to influxdb?


    After a quick search there seems to be a tool called Prometheus which looks interesting but i'd prefer to use existing tools.

  • collectd seems to be capable to write to prometheus.

    For some time I had an influxdb running on RPi 1 and 4, so I know that the DB works :)


    If the idea "bears fruit", that would be a really great solution to visualize the measurements taken for very specific analysis of OMV servers.

    When you have some early prototype, I'd be eager to see it :)

    As a real world example I'm looking for a better visualization of SMB benchmark results (link in my signature below)


    found it in https://github.com/collectd/collectd#readme


    "- write_prometheus

    Publish values using an embedded HTTP server, in a format compatible with Prometheus' collectd_exporter."
