Optimize Apache server performance and gain in-depth visibility into critical performance parameters.
The Apache HTTP Server, commonly known as Apache, is the world's most used web server software. Configure Site24x7 Apache plugin to monitor the performance of your apache server and stay on top of issues at all times.
This document details how to configure the Apache plugin and the monitoring metrics for providing in-depth visibility into the performance, availability, and usage stats of Apache servers.
Apache performance monitoring metrics:
Take informed troubleshooting decisions by keeping track of critical Apache metrics including:
Requests per second
"req_per_sec" records the The total number of HTTP requests the web server is processing per second.
Use the metric "busy_workers" and record the total number of workers serving requests i.e., the total number of Apache processes actively processing an HTTP request.
The total number of idle workers is monitored using the metric "idle_workers". I.e., the total number of idle Apache processes waiting for an HTTP request.
The metric "uptime" gets the total amount of time the Apache server has been up and running.
Bytes per second
"bytes_per_sec" records the total amount of data the web server is transferring per second.
Use the metric "cpu_load" and get the total percentage of CPU used by the Apache server.
Bytes per request
The average number of bytes being transferred per HTTP request is obtained using the metric "bytes_per_req".
The total number of accesses on the Apache server is monitored using the metric "total_accessess".
