Server monitoring

Ronan Lucio
Hi guys,

How do you suggest to monitor service availability?
A know that some people use to monitor a few URLs through the proxy,
but, I'd like to know if there is any way to remotly monitor squid
service.

Thanks,
Ronan

Do you mean "is it running?"

Or do you mean "how busy is it?"

Or do you mean "is it working and supplying the content it's expected /
supposed to ?"

Or... maybe something else?

So, what it is you want to monitor?


Next question: do you already have some monitoring system such as Icinga,
Zabbix, Nagios, etc., which you use for other systems and services, or is
Squid the first thing you're thinking of keeping a watchful eye on?


Given that information, we might have some ideas, or else pointers to where
else it's worth asking the question.


Regards,


Antony.

Hi Antony,

I mean "is it running"?

Yes, I have a couple of ways to monitor servers and services.
Specifically for this one, I plan to use GCP Stackdriver.

Agent will gather system data for CPU, disk, memory, and some services.
Besides that, I'd like to have a monitor to say "is squid running?",
regardless of CPU, disk, and memory are fine.

Thanks,
Ronan
