NGINX monitoring

NGINX is a web server which can also be used as a reverse proxy, load balancer, mail proxy and HTTP cache.

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



It produces following charts:

  • Active Client Connections Including Waiting Connections in connections
  • Active Connections Per Status in connections
  • Accepted And Handled Connections in connections/s
  • Requests in requests/s


Edit the go.d/nginx.conf configuration file using edit-config from the your agent's config directory, which is typically at /etc/netdata.

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

Needs only url to server's stub_status. Here is an example for local and remote servers:

- name: local
url :
- name: remote
url :

For all available options please see module configuration file.


Check the module debug output. Run the following command as netdata user:

./go.d.plugin -d -m nginx
