vhost_requests_ - Wildcard-plugin to monitor http requests by response status code to a particular virtual host.


Example configuration follows.

    user root

Or you can just give read access to munin.

An example way to create links for all logfiles (remove the \ from the \$s): for f in \$(ls /var/log/apache2/*access_log) ; do ln -s /usr/share/munin/plugins/vhost_requests_ vhost_requests_\$(basename \$f); done

Also refer to max_lines, logdir, date_format and status_column below if you have any issue, if you're on fedora you'll need to change at least logdir.


This plugin does not use environment variables


This is a wildcard plugin. To show requests by response status code on a particular virtual host, link vhost_requests_<desired_access_log_filename> to this file.


# ln -s /usr/share/munin/plugins/vhost_requests_ \ /etc/munin/plugins/

# This is the format that date will use to generate access_log like entries date_format='+%d/%b/%Y:%R' # This is where apache stores logfiles logdir=/var/log/apache2

# By default process the whole logfile, but you can set a value different than 0 to limit the lines to process. # This is useful if the plugin is hurting your performance, a way to calculate this could be: # The expected requests in five minutes (you can grab this from the maximum value in the y legend) # / 5 * 6 (Because we left the last minute to the next round) # times how high can an unexpected peak be (Example 3 times) # So, if we have 1000 requests every five minutes max_lines could be: # 1000 / 5 * 6 * 3 = 3600 # It should improve performance because at 1000 requests per 5 minutes you have 288000 per day but it will only read 3600 each time. max_lines=0 # If your http status code comes in a different column, you can change it here: (Assuming ' ' is the column separator) status_column=9
