Hi, I am looking at different options to monitoring gluster periodically
and I came across the gluster-exporter project (

In essence, this exporter periodically queries the gluster CLI possibly
multiple times within a minute (for example: gluster volume status <vol>
detail, or gluster peer status etc..). I do wonder if there is any overhead
in doing so, especially on two aspects (i) if every brick in a volume
performs the CLI query and (ii) any other management transaction is in

Any thoughts here is appreciated
