View and manage Puppet Server metrics
Puppet Server tracks performance and status metrics you can use to monitor server health and performance over time.
You can retrieve, track, and visualize Puppet Server metrics with:
- The Puppet Report Viewer app for Splunk. You'll need the splunk_hec and pe_event_forwarding modules along with the add-on. For information about this option, refer to these blog posts:
- The puppet_operational_dashboards module (which you can use along with the puppet_metrics_collector module module that is already bundled with PE).
- The Metrics API and Status API endpoints.
- Customizable, networked Graphite and Grafana instances. While the
puppet-graphitemodules are not Puppet-supported modules (they are provided for testing and demonstration purposes only), you can learn about these options in Get started with Graphite and Available Graphite metrics.
