Monitoring GitHub

eG Enterprise offers a dedicated monitoring model for GitHub which periodically monitors the repositories, the organizations and the events reported during various activities in a GitHub user account.

Figure 1 : Layer model of the GitHub

Using the metrics reported by the tests mapped to the layers, administrators can find quick and accurate answers to certain persistent performance queries, such as the following:

  • What is the size of each repository?
  • Is any repository populated with too many open issues?
  • How well the storage space is being utilized in the target user account?
  • How many private and public repositories are owned by the target user account?
  • How many outside collaborators are added to the repositories of each organization?
  • Were create/delete events performed in the user account?
  • How many commit operations were performed in each repository?

Since the Web Server layer in the Figure 1 has already been discussed in the Monitoring Microsoft IIS Web Server document, the section to come will focus on the GitHub layer alone.
