PHP-FPM monitoring with Netdata

PHP-FPM is an alternative PHP FastCGI implementation with some additional features useful for sites of any size, especially busier sites.

This module will monitor one or more php-fpm instances, depending on your configuration.


  • php-fpm with enabled status page
  • access to status page via web server


It produces following charts:

  • Active Connections in connections
  • Requests in requests/s
  • Performance in status
  • Requests Duration Among All Idle Processes in milliseconds
  • Last Request CPU Usage Among All Idle Processes in percentage
  • Last Request Memory Usage Among All Idle Processes in KB


Edit the go.d/phpfpm.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/phpfpm.conf

Needs only url or socket. Here is an example for local and remote servers:

- name: local
url: http://localhost/status?full&json
- name: local
url: http://[::1]/status?full&json
- name: local_socket
socket: '/tmp/php-fpm.sock'
- name: remote

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 phpfpm
