Monitoring NGINX (plus): key metrics and how-to

A session at nginx.conf 2014

Tuesday 21st October, 2014

11:45am to 12:30pm (PST)

NGINX just works and that's why we use it. That does not mean that it should be left unmonitored. As a web server, it plays a central role in a modern infrastructure. As a gatekeeper, it sees every interaction with the application. If you monitor it properly it can explain a lot about what is happening in the rest of your infrastructure.

In this talk you will learn more about NGINX (plus) metrics, what they mean and how to use them. You will also learn different methods (status, statsd, logs) to monitor NGINX with their pros and cons, illustrated with real data coming from real servers.
