Generic JSON URI


A versatile plugin to report any data in JSON format to Scout. It can read http://, https://, local files, and more.


Provide a path to a JSON endpoint, and this plugin reads and reports all its values into Scout. The endpoint can be anything recognized by Ruby’s open-uri library, including http://, https://, ftp:// and a path to a local file.

Keep in mind that all Scout plugins are limited to 20 distinct metrics, so your JSON endpoint shouldn’t contain more than 20 keys.
