In the world of NoSQL

tcollector is a nice subset of scripts to graph system performance and store it into OpenTSDB (which in turn stores the data in HBase).


Most people seam to install it via puppet, but this is how you do it otherwise. First of all you need to make sure that you have started TSD with –auto-metric so that you don’t have to run mkmetric for every metric that a collector tracks, then you need to run the following commands:

# cd /usr/local
# git clone git://
# cd tcollector
# sed -i startstop
# ./startstop start

It will log into /var/log/tcollector.log. Dependencies (in Debian): git, python-json, python-mysqldb.
