Monitor Apache SSL with Munin

On my munin-node-1.4.5p5, I can only graph HTTP activity ; no HTTPS. There is a plugin though that enables graphing both HTTP and HTTPS.

  • Grab the plugin here ;
  • Copy it in /etc/munin/plugins/ in replacement for the original Munin plugin ;
  • Configure /etc/munin/plugin-conf.d/openbsd-packages to know about the Apache ports to monitor:
    env.ssl yes
    env.port 80
    env.ports 443
  • Restart munin_node

Wait about 5 minutes and check your new shiny HTTP/SSL graphs!

Here’s how:

Monitoring with Munin on OpenBSD

Munin monitoring systemQuoting it’s website, “Munin is a networked resource monitoring tool (…)”.
It’s like Cacti but smaller, faster, …

It is based on a client/server configuration. By default, you install the “client” part on the host you want to monitor and install the “server” part on the host that will keep the data and do the graphics.

Here’s the way I installed, configured and run it on OpenBSD 4.9.
