pmdahaproxy is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which
extracts live performance data from HAProxy statistics socket or URL.
By default the HAProxy stats socket is used to retrieve the metric
but if the optional URL option is set (see below), then the HAProxy
URL is used instead.
See the HAProxy documentation for detailed description of each
pmdahaproxy reads an optional ini-style configuration file
This file can contain in its [pmda] section overriding values for the
following PMDA options:
By default, root and /var/lib/haproxy/stats, are used as values for
these options, respectively.
The section can also contain the following parameters:
When the url option is defined, URL connection to HAProxy is used.
pmdahaproxy expects CSV data from the HAProxy URL; an example of a
compatible URL is http://127.0.0.1:9000/?stats;csv.
Note that the HAProxy statistics socket and/or URL need to be
separately enabled in the HAProxy configuration file; please refer to
the HAProxy configuration documentation for details. Depending on
system and HAProxy configuration, using non-root user may also be
possible, especially with URL based connections.
Once the needed setup is ready, you can test the connection and
install the PMDA to enable access to the names and values for the
HAProxy performance metrics. To install, do the following as root:
# cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/haproxy# ./connect# ./Install
To uninstall, do the following as root:
# cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/haproxy# ./Removepmdahaproxy is launched by pmcd(1) and should never be executed
directly. The Install and Remove scripts notify pmcd(1) when the
agent is installed or removed.

Environment variables with the prefix PCP_ are used to parameterize
the file and directory names used by PCP. On each installation, the
file /etc/pcp.conf contains the local values for these variables.
The $PCP_CONF variable may be used to specify an alternative
configuration file, as described in pcp.conf(5).
