Monitoring Multiple Systems With munin (Debian Etch)

Monitoring Multiple Systems With munin (Debian Etch)

In this article I will describe how you can monitor multiple systems with munin. munin produces nifty little graphics about nearly every aspect of your server (load average, memory usage, CPU usage, MySQL throughput, eth0 traffic, etc.) without much configuration. I will install the munin client on all systems that are to be monitored (including the munin server itself); the munin clients will then report to the munin server.

Server Monitoring With munin And monit On Mandriva 2008.0

Server Monitoring With munin And monit On Mandriva 2008.0

In this article I will describe how you can monitor your Mandriva 2008.0 server with munin and monit. munin produces nifty little graphics about nearly every aspect of your server (load average, memory usage, CPU usage, MySQL throughput, eth0 traffic, etc.) without much configuration, whereas monit checks the availability of services like Apache, MySQL, Postfix and takes the appropriate action such as a restart if it finds a service is not behaving as expected. The combination of the two gives you full monitoring: graphics that lets you recognize current or upcoming problems (like "We need a bigger server soon, our load average is increasing rapidly."), and a watchdog that ensures the availability of the monitored services.

Zabbix 1.4.4 From Source On Debian Etch

Originally posted on Zabbix 1.4.4 from source on Debian Etch. This guide will walk you through installing Zabbix 1.4.4 from source on Debian Etch. 1.4.4 has many improvements over what is currently available in apt, and it's not hard so you might as well do it this way. *Note: this walkthrough assumes that you will be running the zabbix database on the same machine as the frontend. You dont have to obviously, just do the mysql setup on whatever db server you are using and point the necessary things to it.

Monitoring Wordpress (And Other Database-Backed PHP Apps) With Hyperic HQ

Monitoring Wordpress (And Other Database-Backed PHP Apps) With Hyperic HQ

This howto is for users and admins of PHP/MySQL web applications who are looking for a way to monitor the data from these applications. This howto is not geared specificially to monitoring the system resource usage of the web server and database, although that is one piece of the puzzle. Instead, the focus of this howto is using Hyperic HQ's SQL Query plugin to monitor the data contained within the backing database, in this case the number of posts, comments and users from a Wordpress blog deployment. Then, we will view this data in the context of system resource usage, to help admins correlate the information from the Wordpress plugin we're about to create with whatever other data they're monitoring from that system.
