Epic Plugin

The Epic plugin emits Traffic Server metrics in a format that is consumed by the Epic Network Monitoring System. It is a global plugin that is installed by adding it to the plugin.config file.

Plugin Options

 Specify the directory the plugin will write sample files to. The default is /usr/local/epic/cache/eapi.
--period=SECS Specify the sample period in seconds. The default is to write samples every 30 seconds.


The Traffic Server metrics system does not store the semantics of metrics, so it is not possible to programmatically determine whether a metrics can be rate converted. The plugin contains a static list of metrics that should not be rate converted (gauges in Epic terminilogy).
