Hiawatha Monitor with reverse proxy

5 January 2017, 17:23
Hi Hugo,

I have a question on what to monitor when using Hiawatha as a reverse proxy...

If I add
MonitorServer =
in my proxy server, I can see all the backend webserver that I am running..
So do I need to remove the reverse proxy and only monitor the backend or monitor only the proxy or both?

Thank you in advance

You can use the Hostname administration in the CMS to hide certain hostnames in the Hiawatha Monitor.

Hi Hugo,

Sorry I'm not clear..
Should I only monitor the reverse proxy with MonitorServer = and then hide the host that I don't want instead of adding the MonitorServer into all the backend webservers?

There is no 'must', there is only 'want'. Monitor the servers you want to monitor. That's it.
