Server Checks - Request to display current reported values (and possible graphs)

We are using server checks e.g file age, size check etc.

Although you can set thresholds (annoyingly no option to report when a file drops below a specific file size), you cannot see the current reported value

It would be extremely helpful if this could be displayed within the platform as 

 

1) it would inspire confidence that site24x7 is correctly reporting a file age, size (you only get a status up/down)

2) Able to chart values e.g. how does a file size change over time. useful  for log file analysis

At the moment we have suspicions that an alert is not being triggered, without the ability to view current (or historical values) we are not able diagnose the fault

Re: Server Checks - Request to display current reported values (and possible graphs)

Hi,

To view the historical values, I would suggest you to use plugins instead of checks. You can view charts with values changing with time.

Let us know the metrics you require to help us tailor your requirement. I will upload the plugin in this thread once its done.

Hi,

We have provided the server file checks as a ready-to-install plugin integration. Download the plugin file from our GitHub repository and follow the steps given in the readme file to monitor the following performance metrics:

  • size - size of the file in KB
  • read_access - read access enabled
  • write_access - write access enabled
  • execution_access - execution access enabled
  • last_access_time - last file accessed time
  • last_modified_time - last file modified time
  • time_since_last_accessed - hours before the file was accessed last
  • time_since_last_modified - hours before the file was modified last

Hope this helps. Let us know if you would need any other metrics to be monitored along with the above metrics.

 

Regards,

Anita
