apt - Monitor the packages that should be installed on systems using apt-get.
Mostly Debian and Ubuntu but also RedHat and other distributions which now use apt.
This plugin needs a cronjob that runs 'apt-get update' every hour or so
/etc/cron.d/munin-plugin-apt 53 * * * * root apt-get update > /dev/null 2>&1 23 08 * * * root apt-get update > /dev/null
Remember to randomize when these cronjobs are run on your servers
Link this plugin in @@CONFDIR@@/plugins/ and restart the munin-node.
This plugin does not actually draw graphs; it is rather designed to generated warnings. To get a graph showing the number of available packages, please see the "apt_all" plugin.
