Bug#920258: ITP: prometheus-squid-exporter -- Prometheus exporter for Squid proxy servers




Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Daniel Swarbrick <daniel.swarbrick@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

* Package name    : prometheus-squid-exporter
  Version         : 1.4
  Upstream Author : Mohamad Arab <boynux@xxxxxxxxx>
* URL             : https://github.com/boynux/squid-exporter
* License         : MIT
  Programming Lang: Go
  Description     : Prometheus exporter for Squid proxy servers

Prometheus exporter which connects to a Squid proxy server's cache
manager API and exposes metrics such as:

 * Cache hit counters
 * Client HTTP request / byte counters
 * Server HTTP / FTP requests
 * Request error counters

This package is useful for monitoring the health / performance of Squid
proxy servers, since Squid does not natively offer a Prometheus metrics
endpoint.

I plan to maintain this with the long-term assistance of the Debian Go
packaging team. Benjamin Drung (bdrung@xxxxxxxxxx) will sponsor me for
the upload of this package.
