Apache requests per second graph

Hi,

I would like to have some service checks, esp. "Apache requests per second" to generate a graph, like "Apache processes".

Is there a way to do it and how?

I am running: Opsview Core 3.20130522.0

Thanks,

Nick

Re: Apache requests per second graph

In the meantime I found this: http://www.opsview.com/forum/opsview-core/how-do-i/performance-gaugegraph

Have you by any chance added since then or plan to add such a feature any time soon in the Core version?

(By the way, I am disappointed that the Core version has been stripped of some useful stuff, like basic availability reporting, which was available in the Opsview Cummunity version in its prior form. I understand that Opsview is trying to put momentum to Pro/Enterprise versions, however I am not sure this is the right way to do it.)

I also found these custom Nagios Service Checks:

http://exchange.nagios.org/directory/Plugins/Web-Servers/Apache/check_ap...

http://nagios.frank4dd.com/howto/apache-session-monitoring-nagios.htm

Is it possible that the Opsview team integrate such a feature in future versions of Opsview Core? I think this is something badly needed not only for Core, but also for Pro/Enterprise users (see e.g. the link at the top of this post).

In any case, how can we add a custom service check in Opsview (so we can try to do it manually)?

Please advise.

Regards,
Nick

Re: Apache requests per second graph

Hi Nick,

There is already a host template in "Application - Apache HTTP Server" that has a service check called "apache requests per second" you can use - information here: http://docs.opsview.com/doku.php?id=opsview-core:initialconfiguration:templates:apachehttpserver

You wont be able to use the dashboards however (there is a gauge that you can now add multiple service checks to), as these are pro/enterprise features.

Best,

Sam

Re: Apache requests per second graph

Thank you for the reply.

As I explained, I am already using this template, but it does not generate a graph. Is there an option to activate the generation of a graph, like "Apache processes" template does?

Thanks,
Nick

Re: Apache requests per second graph

The service check does produce a graph (performance data) - i have it set up in my test system.

You may need to reload again to have Opsview recogonise this data?

Thanks,

Yes, I did a Reload and this caused the graphs to show up.

Previously such info was not available because, obviously, I had not enabled the server-status module on Apache. I enabled it recently, and data started pouring-in. But it seems a reload was indeed needed to enable graphs.

Thanks again,
Nick
