Nginx monitoring ~ Pingdom Server Monitor
Plugins like this provide extra functionality beyond Pingdom Server Monitor's default monitoring capabilities. This and 90+ other plugins are available via a one-click install in our web interface.

Nginx monitoring


Monitors Nginx, reporting the total # of handled requests, the request throughput, and the number of active, reading, writing, and keep-alive connections.


Monitors Nginx, reporting:

  • Total # of handled requests
  • Request throughput (requests/sec)
  • Active, reading, writing, and keep-alive connections


In order to have this plugin running, you need to make sure that your version of Nginx was compiled with the Stub Status module.

On Ubuntu Hardy, the Nginx package comes with Stub Status compiled in so if you installed Nginx via apt-get or aptitude, you should have it.

Make sure you have the following in your Nginx config file:

location /nginx_status {
  stub_status on;
  access_log   off;
  deny all;
