Lighttpd2 monitoring with Netdata

Lighttpd2 is a work in progress version of open-source web server.

This module will monitor one or more Lighttpd2 servers, depending on your configuration.



It produces the following charts:

  • Requests in requests/s
  • Status Codes in requests/s
  • Traffic in kilobits/s
  • Connections in connections
  • Connection States in connection
  • Memory Usage in KiB
  • Uptime in seconds


Edit the go.d/lighttpd2.conf configuration file using edit-config from the Netdata config directory, which is typically at /etc/netdata.

cd /etc/netdata # Replace this path with your Netdata config directory
sudo ./edit-config go.d/lighttpd2.conf

Needs only url to server's server-status?format=plain. Here is an example for 2 servers:

- name: local

- name: remote

For all available options please see module configuration file.


To troubleshoot issues with the lighttpd2 collector, run the go.d.plugin with the debug option enabled. The output should give you clues as to why the collector isn't working.

  • Navigate to the plugins.d directory, usually at /usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/. If that's not the case on your system, open netdata.conf and look for the plugins setting under [directories].

    cd /usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/
  • Switch to the netdata user.

    sudo -u netdata -s
  • Run the go.d.plugin to debug the collector:

    ./go.d.plugin -d -m lighttpd2
