02-Dec-2013This version introduces some interesting new features. A complete new graph to monitor an unlimited number of Memcached installations, a new option called
max_historic_yearsto be able to configure how many years of historical data will be kept (up to 5 years), two new alerts in the Disk graph to control the disks health, etc.
The new Memcached graph includes hits and misses graphs, a graph for the current cache used in MB and its percentage, a graph with the number of items in cache, object I/O including evictions and reclaims, a graph to show the current connections and threads, and the last graph to show its network traffic.
The following is an example of the new Memcached graph:
The new option
max_historic_years enables the ability to have up to 5 years of historical data on each graph. Beware with this option because it will generate a new
.rrd file every time its value is extended, losing completely the current historical data. Its default value is 1. The new alerts in the Disk graph will monitor two important values from the SMART system of each disk: the number of reallocated sectors (Reallocated_Sector_Ct) and the number of pending sectors (Current_Pending_Sector).
The rest of changes and bugs fixed are, as always, reflected in the
Changes file. Also, check the
monitorix.conf(5) man page for all the details.
All users still using older versions are advised to upgrade to this version, which resolves more security issues.
NOTICE: The configuration file
monitorix.conf has been extended with important changes.
