A Python Script I Used for Membase/Couchbase Stats Reports

To check operational stats of your Membase (Now Couchbase) server/cluster, you can use the telnet interface (port 11211) and issue the stats command to any individual node:

$ telnet 192.168.12.11 11211
stats

The output is unsorted and a little difficult to read at quick glance.

I use the following Python script for getting a quick snapshot of stats from Membase in a more readable format. Since Membase speaks the Memcached protocol, I use the python-memcached module. List all nodes you want stats from.

#!/usr/bin/env python
# Corey Goldberg - 2010 (goldb.org)
# print a stats report from membase key-value database (membase.org)
# python 2.x
# requires python-memcached


import memcache


NODES = ('192.168.12.11:11211',) 

mc = memcache.Client(NODES)

for node_stats in mc.get_stats():
    server, stats = node_stats
    print '-----------------------------------------'
    print server
    print '-----------------------------------------'
    for stat_name, value in sorted(stats.iteritems()):
        if not stat_name.startswith('ep'):
            if stat_name not in ('libevent', 'version'):
                print stat_name.ljust(25), value.rjust(15)
    print '-----------------------------------------'
    for stat_name, value in sorted(stats.iteritems()):
        if stat_name.startswith('ep'):
            if stat_name not in ('ep_dbname', 'ep_version'):
                print stat_name.ljust(25), value.rjust(15)

 

sample output (1 node):
