Server load indicator

Is it broken? No matter when I hover over it, the response is always 1782 pages per minute. I cannot believe that the load is the same 24x7.

I know the server lights are burnt out with any version of Internet Explorer. At least they light up under Opera or SeaMonkey. As for the server stats... 1782 is consistent at the moment.

SeaMonkey 2.17.1: LIGHTS ARE ON
 

IE10: LIGHTS ARE BURNED OUT
 
Definitely busted... hamsters must have cut the power line to the load stats.

Lights are on with Firefox also. However, the hover is still ALWAYS 1782.

Looks like it has been quietly retired.

Page still exists though?

Reported before site transfer, then missing afterwards. I'm guessing the fix was to simply discard it after the transfer altogether.

A whole bunch o' things are going to go missing--some to return later, some not. I hope this one returns.

Highly doubtful...
I say that only because realistically it really serves little useful purpose, and it's not by far any kind of priority to look into. Despite what I've mentioned, I would still like to see it return.

I might bring something back when I get a better handle on what average and maximum load is. There are a lot of graphs behind the scenes now. Just not sure what is worth showing.

Knowing exactly what to represent with 4 little LED icons isn't obvious.

Is there a 'pages per minute' in there?

yes that is apache requests per second.

However I'm as yet unsure what rate would constitute low medium and high given the indicator, years ago, used to reveal when a slowdown was probably related to overload. It also depends on the request mix and a bunch of other things.

The SWAG principle is probably fine for now; we just like bright colors and flashing lights anyway.

That type of detailed information is quite interesting to look at!

It is called Munin, it has helped find a number of things that I'd otherwise not notice until worse things happened. For example a crawler was leaving thousands of incomplete connections slowly filling up the ip_conntrack table so I contacted them with the graph and they admitted they have an issue overflowing their upstream routers and will cut back on their parallel crawling.
And then after the upgrade a script that does constant DNS lookups was slowly growing in memory due to a memory leak (I found it reported in CPAN but unfixed).

It has only basic alert and warning notifications but that isn't what it is designed for.

Guys, where do you see them? I'm running latest Iron and/or IE7 and don't see them (or may be simply don't know where to look).

I want a page with all of these.

No, seriously, I do.

well your name is DataDoc after all.
that is just the front-end server, there is another one for the backend sql server, and then there are less key servers that were not in NAC. Then you can create derived pages that for example add together measures across machines to build synthetic graphs.
