Real time monitoring on CPU loading & memory consumption

12 June 2010, 04:53

Hiawatha version: 7.3
Operating System: Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS
Monitor: 0.3

It will be very nice if the Monitor can monitor the CPU loading and memory consumption of the webservers in real time.

I think these feature is very useful when Sysadmin is fighting in DDoS attacks.

Any idea?

In my opinion, monitoring such things real time is not something a webserver should do. You can use applications like Nagios for that. The Hiawatha Monitor is not meant to do real time monitoring of the server performance, but to see if your websites are doing well (no 404 or 500 errors), to see who uses your website (visitors from what country to see if support for a certain language would be nice) with what browser (maybe support for a certain mobile device is required) or to see who links to your website and what do they say about it. In other words, the Hiawatha Monitor is to monitor your websites and its usage, not the server.
