Apache/nginx template, request for second?

Hello, first of all, thank you very much for the plugins, they are very useful :smiley:

I have a question about monitoring templates for nginx and apache, does the data shown in the graphs on request correspond to requests for seconds?

Yes, these are Apache/Nginx Requests graphs.

Hi weber, thanks for the reply.

Sorry if the question has not been clear, the English is not my native language :slight_smile:

Is the information displayed in the graph request per second?

The documentation mentions only the amount of request but does not make clear which is the measure of time, are request every 5 minutes, seconds, etc.

Just checked both Apache and Nginx requests are COUNTER type fields. This means that the rate of req/sec is shown on the graph.
Yeah, it’s not clear in the documentation but for most of the graphs those rules apply:

  • for GAUGE metrics - the current state displayed
  • for COUNTER/DERIVE metrics - the rate of change

Even Cacti poller interval is 5 min. this is automatically calculated as (LAST - PREV) / 300 to display per second rate.

Hi weber, thank you very much for the full reply :slight_smile:
