Munin Watchdog service

Munin graph of Drupal monitoring munin-node. The red lines show the alert limits

Drupal can also be used as a heartbeat check to Munin itself : the Munin API module can emit watchdog events if the Munin probe interval deviates from the normal 300 seconds, with 2 levels of severity depending on the interval: thus one missed probe could trigger a warning and two a critical.

This allows triggering alerts in other systems when Munin itself is down and thus cannot generate the munin-limits alerts.

  • a line chart of the caching information
  • an area chart for APC uptime

The Munin Core submodule exposes several graphs:
