Munin Monitoring Tool


Hello all,

I have installed munin on VM CentOS 5.6 server and munin-node on my client.

I am little bit confused about configuration. There is no any munin file in conf.d

Document root is /var/www/html/munin

Configuration file in /etc/munin/munin.conf

How i tell apache to open munin on my server ip or server name??

Any help?

Well munin is not a web application, it just routinely generates a bunch of files and dumps them at the configured doc root, so there is no actual interaction at all between apache and munin. So if you want a dedicated http://munin/ url to work etc, then it's just a case of using tota;ly standard apache virtualhost configurations.

BTW, whilst the information munin tracks is good and detailed, I've found the application architecture to be just awful. sitting on a cron job and generating a dump of graph images... it's just horrible, and I'd suggest you looked around for less archaic products.

Thanks Acid for your advices and i will surely look after your suggestions. At this time i'm ordered to install and configure munin on VM and after that i have to set it up on real server. The problem is i installed apache just now and it is not configured yet(no any domain name). I want to ask that how i make domain name and then configure munin for opening on that domain name or ip whatever?

Well as above, you need to configure a virtualhost, about which there is a LOT of standard documentation for you to read. In reality, munin should be writing to /var/www/html/munin by default I believe, so just starting apache and going to http://ip.of.the.server/munin should work out of the box.
