Telegraf plugin: procstat


The procstat plugin can be used to monitor system resource usage by an individual process using their /proc data.

The plugin will tag processes by their PID and their process name.

Processes can be specified either by pid file or by executable name. Procstat plugin will use pgrep when executable name is provided to obtain the pid. Proctstas plugin will transmit IO, memory, cpu, file descriptor related measurements for every process specified. A prefix can be set to isolate individual process specific measurements.


  exe = "influxd"
  prefix = "influxd"

  pid_file = "/var/run/lxc/"

The above configuration would result in output like:

> procstat,name="dnsmasq",pid="44979" cpu_user=0.14,cpu_system=0.07
> procstat,name="influxd",pid="34337" influxd_cpu_user=25.43,influxd_cpu_system=21.82


Note: prefix can be set by the user, per process.

  • procstat_[prefix_]voluntary_context_switches value=250
  • procstat_[prefix_]involuntary_context_switches value=0

  • procstat_[prefix_]write_count value=1
  • procstat_[prefix_]read_bytes value=1019904
  • procstat_[prefix_]write_bytes value=1

CPU related measurement names:

  • procstat_[prefix_]cpu_user value=0
  • procstat_[prefix_]cpu_system value=0.01
  • procstat_[prefix_]cpu_idle value=0
  • procstat_[prefix_]cpu_nice value=0
  • procstat_[prefix_]cpu_iowait value=0
  • procstat_[prefix_]cpu_irq value=0
  • procstat_[prefix_]cpu_soft_irq value=0
  • procstat_[prefix_]cpu_soft_steal value=0
  • procstat_[prefix_]cpu_soft_stolen value=0
  • procstat_[prefix_]cpu_soft_guest value=0
  • procstat_[prefix_]cpu_soft_guest_nice value=0

Memory related measurement names:
