NAME

nbdkit-stats-filter - display statistics about operations

SYNOPSIS

 nbdkit --filter=stats PLUGIN statsfile=FILE
                       [statsappend=true] [statsthreshold=PERCENTILE]

DESCRIPTION

nbdkit-stats-filter is a filter that displays statistics about NBD operations, such as the number of bytes read and written. Statistics are written to a file once when nbdkit exits.

PARAMETERS

statsfile=FILE

The file where we write the stats.

This parameter is required.

statsappend=true

If set then we append to the file instead of replacing it.

statsthreshold=PERCENTILE

If non-zero, track request size and alignment distribution and print histogram.

Requests are grouped by the number of bits that are needed to represent the request size (e.g. a request of size 3892 needs will be grouped with all requests of size 2^11=2048 to 2^12-1=4095), and the number of trailing zero bits in the offset.

Histogram output is truncated to PERCENTILE of requests. Default: 95.

FILES

$filterdir/nbdkit-stats-filter.so

The filter.

Use nbdkit --dump-config to find the location of $filterdir.

VERSION

nbdkit-stats-filter first appeared in nbdkit 1.14.
