Overview of BigBlueButton Exporter#
BigBlueButton Exporter is a Prometheus exporter for BigBlueButton.
On a HTTP
/metrics request, the exporter will query the BigBlueButton's API for data which it then aggregates and exposes as metrics.
- Number of participants by type (listeners, voice, video)
- Number of participants by client (HTML5, dial-in, flash)
- Number of recordings (processing, published, unpublished, deleted, unprocessed)
- Number of participants in rooms by bucket
BigBlueButton Exporter is the bridge between BigBlueButton and modern monitoring infrastructure such as Prometheus, Alertmanager & Grafana.
Using BigBlueButton Exporter you can create stunning dashboards for your BigBlueButton infrastructure and create alert rules when certain things happen.
