Longview Apps

November 13, 2013 12:03 pm

We are pleased to announce that Longview now supports Apache, Nginx, and MySQL, in addition to all of the system-level metrics it already provides. The newly updated Longview agent will automatically detect if any of these applications are installed and running, and will start collecting their performance data and other usage statistics. On the Longview dashboard you’ll find new tabs, providing you with insight into key metrics for these applications.

Metrics, Appified.

lvaWith Longview Apps, you now have a graphical dashboard of up-to-the-minute Apache, MySQL, and Nginx resource and performance metrics. Metrics like requests/sec, worker counts, network throughput, queries/sec, slow queries and more are visualized in interactive graphs – along with application-specific CPU, memory, disk IO, and process information.

Use this information to manage system and application resources, tune MySQL queries, troubleshoot application slowdowns, and much more.

System Requirements

Longview works on any supported Linux system. It does NOT have to be a Linode server. Packages for Longview are available for Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora and CentOS distributions. A manual install method is also provided for other systems.

Pricing

Basic Longview is completely FREE, and we’re also bumping the free version’s data retention to 12 hours. Longview Pro is available with higher sample resolution and unlimited data retention. See the product page for details.

Getting Longview

For new users or new installations: Create and/or log into your Linode Manager account, navigate to the Longview tab, and follow the on-screen prompt to install Longview into a new Linux box.

For upgrading existing installations: Run the following command with sudo or as root: apt-get update && apt-get install linode-longview. More information can be found in the Library guides below.
