The Config files

The Config files are located in tcollector/collectors/etc/

  1. related to opsmx collectors configurations.(The following fields need to specify in

    • GLOBAL_COLLECTORS_INTERVAL - Used to apply unique time interval for all collectors
    • OVERRIDE - Used to override script's collection interval time to GLOBAL_COLLECTORS_INTERVAL. i.e When OVERRIDE is True, GLOBAL_COLLECTORS_INTERVAL is applied to all collectors which means every collectors has same unique time interval period
    • SERVICES Dictionary - Select the servicies(specify True) that needs to monitor i.e. Retrives CPU and MEM of the service
    • APACHE_CONFIG Dictionary - Specify username, password and base url like http://localhost, if you wish to monitor apache web server

Select which collectors should run

Go to tcollector/collectors/0/, give execute permissions to the collectors that you want to be run.

For example:
chmod +x

How to download and start?

1. MANUALL download and MANUALL start

Clone the repository

git clone

You should specify host and port in tcollecor/collectors/etc/ and go to tcollectordirectory(root of the tcollectors) run


If you did not specify host and port in tcollecor/collectors/etc/, you can specify host and port as command line argument

python -H <HOST IP> -p <PORT>

2. Download and install as init script

In this step, host and port are already configured, but you need to select which scripts should run by chmod +x <collector name> in tcollector/collectors/0/

sudo wget -O && chmod +x && sh

service tcollector start
service tcollector stop
service tcollector restart
service tcollector uninstall
