How it works?

  • Log-in to your Site24x7 account. Sign up here if you don't have one.
  • Download and install the latest version of Site24x7 Linux Agent
  • Install the Zookeeper plugin
  • The agent will execute the Zookeeper plugin and push the data to the Site24x7 server


  • Ensure that the Zookeeper service is installed and up and running

Zookeeper plugin installation:

  • Create a directory with the name "zookeeper", under Site24x7 Linux Agent plugin directory - /opt/site24x7/monagent/plugins/zookeeper
  • Download the file "zookeeper.py" from our GitHub repository and place it under the "zookeeper" directory
  • Commands to perform the above step:
  • cd /opt/site24x7/monagent/plugins/
    mkdir zookeeper
    cd zookeeper
    wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/site24x7/plugins/master/zookeeper/zookeeper.py
  • Once the plugin file is downloaded, the agent will mark it up in the next data collection and you can view it in Site24x7 client

Zookeeper plugin configuration:

  • By default, the plugin will monitor Zookeeper instance that is configured on "localhost"
  • In order to change the monitoring configuration, go to plugins directory and edit the "#Config Section:" in zookeeper.py file
  • Zookeeper plugin file location - /opt/site24x7agent/monagent/plugins/zookeeper/zookeeper.py

    #Config Section:

Monitoring additional metrics:

  • To monitor additional metrics, edit the "zookeeper.py" file and add the new metrics that need monitoring
  • Increment the plugin version value in the file "zookeeper.py" to view the newly added metrics ( For e.g. Change the default plugin version from PLUGIN_VERSION = "1" to "PLUGIN_VERSION = "2")
