UPDATE: Added --gluster option to specify the path to gluster. By default it looks for /usr/sbin/gluster, If you installed GlusterFS using source install then use
sudo gdash --gluster /usr/local/sbin/gluster. (Those who already installed gdash, can run
sudo pip install -U gdash to upgrade.)
gdash is a super-young project, which shows GlusterFS volume information about local, remote clusters. This app is based on GlusterFS's capability of executing
gluster volume info and
gluster volume status commands for a remote server using --remote-host option.
If you can run
gluster volume info --remote-host=<HOST_NAME>, then you can monitor that cluster using gdash. Make sure you allow to access glusterd port(24007) for the machine where you will run gdash.
sudo pip install gdash
sudo easy_install gdash
Use case 1 - Local Volumes
sudo gdash, gdash starts running in port 8080. visit http://localhost:8080 to view GlusterFS volumes of local machine.
Use case 2 - Remote Volumes
sudo gdash --host 192.168.1.6, visit http://localhost:8080 to view GlusterFS volume information of remote host. Dashboard shows all the volumes which are part of that remote host.
Use case 3 - Multiple clusters
Create a clusters.conf file as example shown below, specify at least one host from each cluster.
[clusters] cluster1 = host1, host2, host3 cluster2 = host4, host5, host6
sudo gdash --clusters ~/clusters.conf
Use case 4 - Multiple teams
If two teams monitoring two clusters and if you don't want to share the other cluster details then, just run below commands in two terminals and give respective URL to each team. Other solution is create two seperate config files and run it separately for different ports.
# Team 1, who monitors cluster1 http://localhost:8001 sudo gdash -p 8001 --clusters ~/clusters.conf --limit-cluster cluster1 # Team 2, who monitors cluster2 http://localhost:8002 sudo gdash -p 8002 --clusters ~/clusters.conf --limit-cluster cluster2
