Since we're on a major migration process of this website, some component documents here are out of sync right now. In the meantime you may want to look at the early version of the new website
We would very much like to receive any feedback on the new site, please join the discussion on the Camel user mailing list.
Available as of Camel 2.15.0
Provides a mechanism to send a value (the message body) as a metric to the Ganglia monitoring system. Uses the gmetric4j library. Can be used in conjunction with standard Ganglia and JMXetric for monitoring metrics from the OS, JVM and business processes through a single platform.
You should have a Ganglia gmond agent running on the machine where your JVM runs. The gmond sends a heartbeat to the Ganglia infrastructure, camel-ganglia can't send the heartbeat itself currently.
On most Linux systems (Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora and RHEL/CentOS with EPEL) you can just install the Ganglia agent package and it runs automatically using multicast configuration. You can configure it to use regular UDP unicast if you prefer.
Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their
You can append query options to the URI in the following format,
Ganglia component and endpoint URI options
Any value (such as a string or numeric type) in the body is sent to the Ganglia system.
Return value / response

The message body will be converted to a String and sent as a metric value. Unlike numeric metrics, String values can't be charted but Ganglia makes them available for reporting. The os_version string at the top of every Ganglia host page is an example of a String metric.
