  • New: Support for network charts and monitoring of network interfaces.

Monitor your network interfaces to be the first to know what is going in and out. Get an alert if the interface is down, or if the capacity changes. Monitor saturation, current upload and download bandwidth usage and total data transfers within the last 24 hours.

To view Network charts in M/Monit 3.4, Monit version 5.11 or later is required and that you have added a check network statement in your Monit configuration file.

From the host details page in M/Monit you can then view detailed information about your monitored interfaces:

New time-series network charts are also available:

  • Fixed: admin/users. Encode/decode username so URL-unsafe chars can be used in uname

New installation

  • Download the release for your OS.
  • Unpack the tar.gz file in a directory, any directory will do, but unpacking in /opt or /usr/local are good choices.
  • Go to the unpacked mmonit-3.4 directory
  • Run M/Monit using: ./bin/mmonit
  • Point your Browser to the host where mmonit is installed (or "localhost" if running on the same machine), for example: http://localhost:8080/ and login as user admin with password swordfish
  • If you want to setup M/Monit to use MySQL or PostgreSQL instead of the default SQLite database, follow these instructions in the wiki.
  • More documentation can be found inline in the application and in the manual (PDF).

Upgrading from previous M/Monit releases (2.3 or later)

The upgrade program can be used to automatically copy database and configuration files from the previous installation and update the database schema.

The whole upgrade process should take less than a minute and you do not have to stop or change Monit on other machines during this process. Monit will simply pick up and start reporting to the new M/Monit 3.4 version.

  • Download the new 3.4 release for your OS.
  • Install M/Monit 3.4 in the same directory as previous release. For example:
  • Stop the previous M/Monit release:
 /usr/local/mmonit/mmonit-3.3/bin/mmonit stop
  • Run the upgrade program and specify the path to the previous M/Monit release:
 /usr/local/mmonit/mmonit-3.4/upgrade/upgrade -p /usr/local/mmonit/mmonit-3.3
  • Start M/Monit 3.4:
  • Finally, clear your browser cache before accessing M/Monit 3.4
