To have some statistical data, we could try out munin on o3.

It gathers data every 5 minutes and writes them in rrd format, and generates a daily, werkly, monthly and yearly graph for things like load, memory, disk usage, apache accesses, network traffic.


  • Install munin and configure
  • Create restricted access over http for the team, since we don't want that data to be public


#1 Updated by tinita 3 months ago

Installed on o3:

# install
% zypper in munin munin-node

# config
% cd /etc/munin
% vim munin.conf
# configure hostname (e.g.

# enable plugins
% cd /etc/munin/plugins
% for  i in /usr/lib/munin/plugins/apache_*; do ln -s $i; done

% systemctl restart munin-node.service

HTML files are under /srv/www/htdocs/munin/ and not accessible from the webserver yet.
Apache would need the status module enabled for the apache_ plugins to work.

We also could enable some postgres plugins.

#2 Updated by tinita 3 months ago

Downloaded plugin and put in /etc/munin/plugins/postgres_queries3_openqa

Configured in /etc/munin/plugin-conf.d/munin-node

We can now see the number of selects, inserts, updates and deletes (under the "db" category).

#3 Updated by okurz 3 months ago

  • Parent task set to #92854

#4 Updated by tinita 3 months ago

  • Status changed from In Progress to Resolved

Still todo:

  • Enable apache status module to be able to collect statistics about apache requests/processes
  • Make the generated HTML files available over the webserver, but only for "us", not for the public. Need to figure out how that can be set up in apache

These things are considered out of scope, so resolving this ticket

#5 Updated by tinita 3 months ago

Anyone wanting to look at the HTML pages, do this:

rsync -a o3:/srv/www/htdocs/munin ~/o3-munin/ 

(where "o3" is configured in your ssh config of course)

#6 Updated by tinita 3 months ago

  • % Done changed from 0 to 100
  • Estimated time set to 2.00 h
  • Difficulty set to easy

#8 Updated by okurz 2 months ago

I just included it in the wiki

#9 Updated by tinita 2 months ago

The service was disabled by default, so it did not start with the reboot yesterday, so I enabled it.
