Ceph is high performance distributed storage system, for storing petabytes of data on commodity hardware. Agent uses Ceph built in tools to expose statistics and send to OddEye servers. Configuration is very minimal and easy : All that is needed is to tell Agent the username, which is allowed to grab statistics (Typically client.admin) and path to keyring. If you run Ceph, you already have installed all needed dependencies, so nothing else is needed to add. Agent will look for configuration in file bigdata.ini.

cd ${OE_AGENT_HOME}/checks_enabled
ln -s ../checks_available/check_ceph.py ./

Make sure that /etc/ceph/ceph.client.admin.keyring is readable for user, which runs Agent. If you want to use another keyring or ceph user, change client and keyring paramaters to your desired ones. It takes cople of seconds, afterwords you can create graphs with these metrics :

client: client.admin
keyring: /etc/ceph/ceph.client.admin.keyring
${OE_AGENT_HOME}/oddeye.sh restart

There isn no necessity to run check_ceph.py on all nodes of Ceph of cluster. Statistics from all nodes will be the same, as above mentioned stats are global at cluster level.
