Patrick Hunt commented on ZOOKEEPER-744: ---------------------------------------- iirc 6 is in the jmx intf, perhaps that captures the election time itself, take a look, perhaps it needs to be moved out to the election object itself. > Add monitoring four-letter word > ------------------------------- > > Key: ZOOKEEPER-744 > URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-744 > Project: Zookeeper > Issue Type: New Feature > Components: server > Affects Versions: 3.4.0 > Reporter: Travis Crawford > Assignee: Savu Andrei > Fix For: 3.4.0 > > Attachments: zk-ganglia.png, ZOOKEEPER-744.patch, ZOOKEEPER-744.patch > > > Filing a feature request based on a zookeeper-user discussion. > Zookeeper should have a new four-letter word that returns key-value pairs > appropriate for importing to a monitoring system (such as Ganglia which has a > large installed base) > This command should initially export the following: > (a) Count of instances in the ensemble. > (b) Count of up-to-date instances in the ensemble. > But be designed such that in the future additional data can be added.
