Server Monitoring

I've finally got around to implementing one of suggestions made after the database drive failure last summer which is to setup some form of server monitoring (Zabbix if anyone is interested). The web interface for it is at Currently the Zabbix server is running off of content3 which is our extra/misc server at the moment.

Anyone is free view the status of site from this web interface which might be useful to diagnose the site when it experiences lag or intermittent issues. Note you don't need to login to view the monitoring output just use the menu bars at the top to navigate. Some example links:

  • Overview -- If anything is red it means something is wrong.
  • Overview Data -- Same view but with explicit numbers.
  • Latest Data -- Shows the latest monitoring data grouped by server and basic type. You can also see handy graphs here by expanding items and clicking the graph button on the right.

Currently it is just monitoring the basic server properties and not specific things like MySQL or memcached status but these things can be added to provide more monitoring capabilities as well as give more triggers to check if anything goes wrong. Right now it is setup to just email me warnings at home/work but I would like to get it setup to also send me text messages for critical items.

I've also made the quick page UESPWiki:Status which anyone is free to change as they see fit. -- Daveh 03:20, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

You're not giving everyone access to phpMyAdmin? You're no fun! ;) Looks like some neat tools, looking forward to exploring them more. ? Joram?Talk 22:06, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
