Our developers have added a new tool to our BitNinjaCLI arsenal. The bitninjacli --stats command can show basic statistics about the BitNinja agent.
Its intended use is for integration with monitoring solutions.

The feature has been available since version 2.38.8.


Issue the command in your terminal as bitinjacli --stats this will show a couple of key statistics.

With the --minify optional switch, the output will be unformatted and can be parsed by programs.


The command can be used with root privileges only by default. Which might not be optimal for most monitoring services.

The user for the command can be changed to the username of the monitoring service by editing the /etc/bitninja/System/config.ini file.
The enableIntegration parameter needs to be set to 1, and the allowedUser variable needs to be equal to the name of the system user of the monitoring solution in question.
It is also important to remove the semicolons from the above-mentioned lines.

If that is done, restart BitNinja with the service bitninja restart command.
So the change can take effect.

After this, the command can be called with sudo /usr/sbin/bitninjacli --stats --minify.

To run or use the command, the BitNinja agent needs to be running.
The command’s output might differ from the Dashboard’s data as the output shows the stats since the latest version of BitNinja was installed.
