We closely monitor all aspects of your server and take appropriate actions if required. You see the status of all service checks in the cockpit.


Monit, nginx and PHP FPM (if installed) status pages are available at http://localhost:2813/.

  • /monit/: Monit service manager displaying status of all locally monitored processes
  • /nginx/: nginx stub status output
  • /fpm-<poolname>/: PHP FPM per pool status page


this status vhost is running on localhost only. Expose port 2813 through SSH to access locally: ssh <hostname> -L 2813:localhost:2813


System statistics are collected every 10 seconds by collectd and written to RRD files in /var/lib/collectd. For performance reasons, we don’t create graphs by default, therefore you have to download and render them with a tool of your choice by yourself.

Please select a rendering-tool from list of frontends within the collectd wiki. We use collectd-web for our own analyses.

Examine with collectd-web


sudo apt-get install librrds-perl libjson-perl libhtml-parser-perl
git clone
echo 'datadir: "/tmp/rrd"' | sudo tee /etc/collectd/collection.conf

Fetch data and render graphs

rsync -avz <server>:/var/lib/collectd/rrd/ /tmp/rrd/
cd /path/to/collectd-web

Then open collectd-web at
