Introduction

  • This wiki help page assumes that you have used the three system setup procedures to install an Ubuntu server with DSpace software.
  • It is assumed that you will be using the same server for monitoring and backup. To setup munin to gather client statistics, follow the procedure below.

Add a firewall rule to allow the server to get the stats:

ufw allow 4949

To install munin, type the following:

apt-get install munin

To enable Munin on the Apache2 web server, type the following

Please note: This is only when using Ubuntu 14.04 and higher.

a2enconf munin
service apache2 restart

Add the clients to the /etc/munin/munin.conf file as follows.

  • Open the file for editing
sudo mcedit /etc/munin/munin.conf
  • Add one of the following for each client to be monitored:
 [%hostname-of-client%]
    use_node_name yes
    address %ip-address-of-client%

Setup the munin server

sudo munin-check

Wait for about 5 to 10 minutes for munin to gather data and then check out the stats as follows.

Open a web browser and type the following in the address bar:

http://%hostname-of-monitoring-server%/munin

You should get a page like this:
