Munin API or http://drupal.org/project/munin ?

Sample output from the drupal.org Munin plugin

Another Munin plugin exists on drupal.org. The OSInet plugin is an independent implementation, not derived from the existing project, and strongly differing in architectural choices:

  • The plugin on d.o. works by building a script containing MySQL queries to run against the DB server. Once the script is generated, the scripts are independent from the module. This typically means a lighter sever load.
  • The OSInet plugin uses live Drupal queries, making it :
    • able to query non-SQL data if the needs arises
    • offering the possibility to toggle settings and activate/deactivate graphs from within Drupal, without having to use Munin-level configuration.
    • upgradable using the normal Drupal upgrade methods
  • The OSInet plugin doubles as a watchdog for the Munin daemon, warning when it is not being probed regularly.
  • Both plugins are Free Software, licenses under the General Public License version 2 and later.
