Openstack swift collector.


  • swift-dispersion-report commandline tool (for dispersion report) if using this, make sure swift.conf and dispersion.conf are readable by diamond also get an idea of the runtime of a swift-dispersion-report call and make sure the collect interval is high enough to avoid contention.
  • swift commandline tool (for container_metrics)

both of these should come installed with swift
