The net/munin port

munin-node-2.0.76 – flexible network host monitoring, client (cvsweb github mirror)


Munin the monitoring tool surveys all your computers and
remembers what it saw. It presents all the information in graphs
through a web interface. Its emphasis is on plug and play
capabilities. After completing an installation a high number
of monitoring plugins will be playing with no more effort.

Using Munin you can easily monitor the performance of your
computers, networks, SANs, applications, weather measurements
and whatever comes to mind. It makes it easy to determine
"what's different today" when a performance problem crops up. It
makes it easy to see how you're doing capacity-wise on any

This package, munin-node, contains the files to install on
machines that you would like to monitor.

| Running ${PKGSTEM} on OpenBSD

munin-node is the "client" side of Munin; it runs on various hosts and
accepts requests from a munin-server, and invokes various plugins to
provide statistics about the host.

Before starting munin-node, you will need to configure access controls
and choose which plugins to use.

Access controls are configured in ${SYSCONFDIR}/munin/munin-node.conf.

Plugins are enabled by creating symlinks in ${SYSCONFDIR}/munin/plugins.
Run "munin-node-configure --shell" to output a set of shell commands to
enable plugins which can be auto-detected. (These commands are not run
automatically, so you can easily choose which you would like to enable).

Some plugins require access to log files which are normally readable only
by root (a common example is /var/log/maillog), but by default the
plugins are run by the "_munin-plugin" user.

You can change permissions and ownership of the log files (and edit
/etc/newsyslog.conf to match). If necessary you can configure the plugin
to run as a different user with the "user" option (see

Log files in /var/log/munin will need to be rotated. Here is a sample
newsyslog.conf fragment:
/var/log/munin/munin-node.log   root:wheel      644  7     250  *     Z

SNMP-based monitors are also available; to use these, install the
p5-Net-SNMP package.
