We're running munin for some out of the box monitoring fun, which can be seen at [1].

To add a new host to this, on the box you wish to monitor:

colin:~# apt-get install munin-node
colin:~# vim /etc/munin/munin-node.conf

and add...

allow ^193\.62\.81\.11$

and don't forget to...

colin:~# /etc/init.d/munin-node restart

Also on davros, edit /etc/munin/munin.conf to add:

    use_node_name yes

Custom plugins

Some custom plugins have been written to monitor:

  • The number of items in the support inbox
  • The number of people logged into gallifrey


  • Munin occasionally sends reports to Malcolm, bung's irc bot, for example when cpu usage exceeds a threshold. These alerts can be seen in #tardismon
