Project description


This package provides munin plugins with zope scripts which provides the data.
  • it uses gocept.munin for plugin registration. Please check it if you want towrite new plugins.
  • some plugins are based on plugins found at munin exchange (many thanks to Gaute Amundsen and Arthur Lutz)


There are 3 plugins available (new comming soon):
  • zope threads - checks free zope threads
  • zope cache parameters - checks database cache parameters
  • zodb activity - checks zodb activity

How to use it

  • First include it in you buildout instance slot:

    eggs =
    zcml =
  • Now you should be able to call the plugins as follow:


    Where zopethreads is you plugin name. Please notice that for the security reason plugins can be called only from localhost (this will be configure better in the future)

  • Now you need to make a symlink from egg to munin plugin directory:

    $ cd /opt/munin/etc/plugins
    $ ln -s ~/.buildout/eggs/redturtle.munin-0.0.3-py2.4.egg/redturtle/munin/plugins/ company_zodbactivity_site1

    Where /opt/munin/etc/plugins is your munin directory, ~/.buildout/eggs is you egg directory, the plugin you want to enable, company your prefix, and site1 the name which will be shown in munin

  • Finally configure the plugin in munin:

    $ cd /opt/munin/etc/plugin-conf.d/
    $ vi redturtle.conf
    ... [company_*_site1]
    ... env.AUTH myuser:myuser
    ... env.URL http://localhost:8080/@@redturtle.munin.plugins/update?munin_plugin=%s

    Where myuser is your zope user credential, localhost:8080 your site url. Please check munin for more info about plugin configuration.
