Use Applications Manager to Monitor NGINX; Here's Why
With their ability to scale out for unparalleled efficiency and low-resource consumption, open source NGINX web servers power almost 140 million sites, worldwide. With Applications Manager's NGINX monitoring feature, you can visualize theNGINX web server's performance and track key NGINX server load metrics.
Extended metrics include number of active and idle connections to upstream servers, request and response rate, throughput information and more. The metrics will be charted in Applications Manager's comprehensive performance graphs. You can configure alerts based on the reported values, execute custom scripts to start Nginx in case of failure, and take corrective action when performance degrades. Read More:
Accessing Your Performance Data with the Applications Manager Rest APIs
Rest APIs are the practical solution to mining application performance monitoring data from Applications Manager and integration with internal portals and third-party monitoring tools.
Using any XML parser in a scripting language, such as Java, C, Perl or Python you can make HTTPs requests in the format recommended in the API. You can then insert this data into your own database or format it per your need. All data per monitor can be collected in either the XML or the JSON format.
With the last release, Applications Manager has added Rest APIs to configure mail, proxy and SMS servers, apply license, and even list user roles. Click here for guidelines on how to use Rest APIs in Applications Manager >>
