Description:

From the author's blog post: Nginx  stub_status Zenpack

 

This ZenPack provides monitoring for the nginx HTTP and reverse proxy server.  Wether you are using it as a reverse proxy or  as a normal webserver you will probably eventually want to know what  its doing over time so you can adjust resources as necessary. It contains a command data source  “check_nginx_ng” which is a slightly modified version of Chris Kellys check_nginx_ng which in turn was based on check_nginx by Mike Adolphs. So thanks to  them for doing the majority of the work!

 

If you are interested you can pick  it up over on the author's github account: http://github.com/nickanderson/ZenPacks.community.NginxStatus
