I’m using the Files and directories collector and I have a job which looks like this:
- name: directory_size_monitoring discovery_every: 30s dirs: collect_dir_size: yes include: - '/etc/pihole/' - '/var/log/'
All the charts work fine except for the Directory size one (filecheck.dir_size).
It shows the “/etc/pihole” directory fine but not “/var/log”.
When I run the collector in debug mode I can see that it’s not getting any dir_size value for that path (it gets it for all the other metrics for that path such as number of files etc).
BEGIN 'filecheck_directory_size_monitoring.dir_size' SET '/etc/pihole/' = 449 SET '/var/log/' = END
I have verified that the Netdata user has the required permissions to the files (the debug logging indicates no such error anyhow).
The only thing I can think of is that /var/log is on tempfs as I’m using log2ram.
The relevant line from df -h gives me:
log2ram 300M 74M 227M 25% /var/log
and mount gives me:
log2ram on /var/log type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,noatime,size=307200k,mode=755,inode64)
Agent version is: netdata v1.42.0-63-nightly
