NFS Statistics

Published and supported by Delivery Agent Inc (non-prod)


A New Relic Plugin that gathers data from nfsiostat to push to newrelic.

This is "tested" on CentOS 6, but should work on RHEL/CentOS/etc 5-7.

Monitoring Highlights

  • Detailed NFS Statistics for ALL mountpoints or a "list"


  • Python 2.6.x or 2.7.x
  • Linux Kernel with /proc/self/mountstats
  • NFS Mounted Filesystems to monitor ;)


  • Download the RPM from the latest release
  • yum localinstall (filename).rpm


  • EDIT: /etc/newrelic-nfsiostat.conf
    • Set your license key in the key setting
    • Enable proxy if necessary

Start/Stop Service

  • service newrelic-nfsiostat start

  • service newrelic-nfsiostat stop


  • Please restart newrelic-nfsiostat after upgrading (yes, the RPM should do that, no it currently doesn't)


This type of installation is for experts only * * Build RPM * Dowload the source and execute:

python sdist_rpm
cd dist/
yum localinstall <RPM You Just Made>.rpm
  • Source Distribution
    • Download the source and execute:
      python sdist
      cd dist/
      tar zxf <The Tarball>
      cd <The Directory you just unzipped>
