Performance indicators of Apache web server
|Distribution:||official part of Check_MK|
This check parses the information provided by the Apache status module.
If you have enabled that module (on Debian/Ubuntu this is the default),
then below the URL /server-status Apache show interesting information
about the number of connections and the like. The agent plugin apache_status
fetches that data and this check processes it. The status is always OK,
but it fetches interesting performance data.
As a preparation you need to install the agent plugin apache_status
into your agent's plugins directory (usually /usr/lib/check_mk_agent/plugins).
The plugin tries to autodetect all running apache servers. If that fails
for some reason you need to create the configuration file
/etc/check_mk/apache_status.cfg and list your servers here. Write
a Python list of dicts for protocol, servername and port.
With the optional item 'page' its posible to change the status page from server-status to a
name you want
A string-combination of servername and port, e.g. 127.0.0.1:5000.
One service per Apache server will be created.
