This integration lets you monitor your Squid metrics from the Cache Manager directly in Datadog.
The Agent’s Squid check is included in the Datadog Agent package, so you don’t need to install anything else on your Squid server.
squid.d/conf.yaml, in the
conf.d/folder at the root of your Agent’s configuration directory. See the sample squid.d/conf.yaml for all available configuration options:
init_config: instances: # A list of squid instances identified by their name - name: my_squid # host: localhost # The hostname or ip address of the squid server. Default to 'localhost' # port: 3128 # The port where the squid server is listening. Default to 3128 # tags: ['custom:tag'] # A list of tags that you wish to send with your squid metrics
Run the Agent’s info subcommand and look for
squid under the Checks section.
The Squid check does not include any events at this time
squid.can_connect: Returns CRITICAL if the Agent cannot connect to Squid to collect metrics, otherwise OK.
