Monitorix 3.7.0 Updates

  • Added a complete statistical VerliHub (verlihub) graph
  • Added a complete graph for Varnish proxy cache
  • Improved ‘port’ option documentation of the Nginx graph in the man page of monitorix.conf
  • Improved ” option documentation of the FS graph in the man page of monitorix.conf
  • Improved the way how are detected the process names in module. Now the output of the ‘command’ parameter in the ‘ps’ command is used to match the process names
  • Zoomed graphs now honour the ‘global_zoom’ option, and also use the function RRDs::graphv to fit better in the browser pop up window. This is a feature only visible with RRDtool v1.3 or more
  • Added an advice in ‘’ and ‘monitorix.conf(5)’ to not use the character colon ‘:’ as part of the name or password since this character is used as field separator
  • Added support for IPv6 in ‘ports’ graph using protocols ‘tcp6’ and ‘upd6’. Note that ‘ip6tables’ command line is needed
  • Port graph now uses the wait lock option (‘–wait’) in newer ‘iptables’ versions
  • Added Dutch translation to monthly reports
  • Removed the option ‘all’ as network protocol in the ‘port’ graph
  • Fixed some bugs in the new Makefile
  • Fixed more messages of use of uninitialized values at in lines 765 and 766. This mainly happens in OpenVZ VPS where ‘/proc/diskstats’ file does not exist
  • Fixed the example of ” block in the monitorix.conf(5) man page to avoid confusion. The values set there must be the same ones that in the ‘/proc/diskstats’ file.
  • Fixed kernel version detection in FreeBSD 10.x which affected the Network graph
  • Fixed missing HTML tag terminations in several modules
  • Fixed the color in the footer URLs in Multihost mode
  • Fixed a ‘403 Forbidden’ message in Apache generated by a misconfiguration in ‘monitorix-apache.conf’
  • Fixed a bug in ‘netstat’ module that prevented, in some cases, counting correctly the opened connections either in IPv4 and IPv6
  • Fixed a missing CDEF that prevented creating the ‘process05z.png’ graph when the option ‘show_gaps’ was enabled
  • Fixed a bug in ‘’ module that prevented from seeing values in the network protocols usage graph
  • Fixes a character shifted to the left in certain ‘hplog’ outputs
  • Fixed the ‘process’ graph in Multihost mode
  • Fixed the ‘Makefile’ to install ‘docs/debian.conf’ as ‘conf.d/00-debian.conf’
  • Fixed to remove red background color in ‘port’ graph when the network port is for outgoing connections
  • Fixed a typo in the y axis title on ‘apcupsd’ Time left graph
  • Fixed to increase the timeout in ’emailreports’ from 30 to 120 seconds
  • Small cosmetic changes
