What is Apache HTTP Web Server?
Apache HTTP, often simply called Apache, is an open source web server distributed under the Apache 2.0 license.
Apache HTTP is widely used in enterprise applications. It is also a central component of the LAMP stack (and other XAMP stacks) as well as the web server of choice in many Open Source projects such as for web application frameworks like Joomla, WordPress, or Drupal....
Apache HTTP application monitoring
This package monitors an Apache HTTP application by gathering metrics from Apache HTTP's Mod_status.
This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Agent in order to monitor availability and performance of Apache HTTP.
The statistics gathered in this way include:
- Throughput and latency metrics
- Resource utilization and activity metrics
- Host-level resource metrics
Please note that the end-to-end Apache Web Application monitoring is easy to implement by combining the metrics from this Apache application monitoring package with W3C access logs in order to go beyond process workers, scoreboard, and other specific Apache Web Server specific metrics. Apache access logs allow to gain end user visibility, providing us with response times, errors, user agents and more.
