Nginx Server Monitoring

Monitor Availability, Responsiveness, User Experience, Processing Capabilities, and more

Nginix Server Monitoring

Designed to handle tens of thousands of concurrent requests, Nginx is one of the fastest and highly scalable web servers around. Not only is Nginx a very efficient web server, but it is often widely used as a reverse proxy, HTTP cache, and load balancer. While Apache continues to be the most popular web server in use, Nginx has become the most popular web server among the web traffic web sites. Since they are often the front ends to business-critical web sites, availability and performance of Nginx servers is of vital importance.

What Ngnix Monitoring with eG Enterprise Reveals

External monitoring
  • Is the web site available for user accesses from different locations?
  • What is the response time for user accesses to the site from different geographic locations?
  • Is a slowdown due to increased network latency or due to increased server-side processing?
Internal transaction monitoring
  • How are the critical transactions of a web site functioning?
  • What is the request rate for each transaction?
  • What is the average response time for each transaction?
  • Are there many aborts for the transaction?
Web site monitoring
  • What is the status of the different web sites hosted on a single web server?
  • Are there many errors occurring in the system?
  • Are the servers supporting the web infrastructure adequately sized?
  • Are there usage trends that need to be accounted for future capacity planning?
Bottleneck detection
  • Is an increase in server-side processing time due to the web server or due to the middleware application server or due to the database?
Capacity planning
  • Is the load being effectively balanced across all the web servers?
  • Are the critical web server processes up and running?
Log file monitoring
  • Get details of URLs seeing 4xx errors, logon failures, forbidden errors, etc.
  • Be alerted to times when internal server errors, web server busy errors and service unavailable errors happen
  • Auto-baseline traffic to each web site. Understand time of day and day of week behavior
What is Nginx?

Nginx (pronounced "engine-x") is a free, open-source, high-performance HTTP server (aka web server) and reverse proxy, as well as an IMAP/POP3 proxy server. Owing to its high performance architecture, Nginx is used by many of the heaviest trafficked web sites.
