I need generate a dashboard (on home dashboad) with Apache metrics like busy threads and count workers. ¿Is it posible?
Thanks in advance
Hi, I found the following:
@Thorsten R. I think @Emiliano B. refers to metrics for Apache HTTPD, not to Apache Tomcat.
looking for same info. Do we have ability to monitor apache httpd metrics like below ones?
I do not believe the metrics you have listed are captured out of the box with Dynatrace.
The metrics I see on the apache httpd page are:
Requests, Traffice, busy threads, Idle threads, queue time, etc.
For these specific metrics I believe the easiest way to capture them is through creating a OneAgent Plugin. Pasting the documentation for writing a plugin below:
These, in particular, are not metrics but configuration settings. To get them you will need to either parse the configuration files or use the info module and parse them as shown here:
Definitely you will need to write a oneagent plugin to get this information via Dynatrace. I'd recommend pushing the information as process level metadata.
However, writing such plugin requires some effort and it does make sense only if you need it for many apache instances.
What we have done for some customers is build a simple plugin that queries the apache httpd status, by using the mod_status module from Apache. It is a very simple plugin to build and deploy.
Is this plugin public? Can I find it on GihHub, for example?
