Configuration details

Field NameDescription
HostHost of the Storm UI service
PortPort of the Storm UI service
UsernameUsername to access the Storm UI service
PasswordPassword to access the Storm UI service
Topologies FilterSelect topologies (by name or id) to show metrics for. If not set, it will shows all topologies
Show BoltsShow metrics for each bolt in each topology (default: true)
Show SpoutsShow metrics for each spout in each topology (default: true)
SourceThe Source to display in the legend for the metrics data. It will default to the hostname of the server
Poll IntervalHow often should the plugin poll for metrics

Events Generated

An Event will be generated whenever the value of lasterror is not nil and will be displayed in the situation room. Once an error occurs an event will be triggered during each polling interval. We will see only one Event for the same error in the situation room with an occurrence count. A new Event will be generated for a different error.

Advanced configuration
