LiteSpeed collector

Collects web server performance metrics for network, connection, requests, and cache.

It produces:

  1. Network Throughput HTTP in kilobits/s

    • in
    • out
  2. Network Throughput HTTPS in kilobits/s

    • in
    • out
  3. Connections HTTP in connections

    • free

  4. Connections HTTPS in connections

    • free

  5. Requests in requests/s

    • requests
  6. Requests In Processing in requests

    • processing
  7. Public Cache Hits in hits/s

    • hits
  8. Private Cache Hits in hits/s

    • hits
  9. Static Hits in hits/s

Edit the python.d/litespeed.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, if different
sudo ./edit-config python.d/litespeed.conf
path : 'PATH'

If no configuration is given, module will use "/tmp/lshttpd/".


To troubleshoot issues with the litespeed module, run the python.d.plugin with the debug option enabled. The output will give you the output of the data collection job or error messages on why the collector isn't working.

First, navigate to your plugins directory, usually they are located under /usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/. If that's not the case on your system, open netdata.conf and look for the setting plugins directory. Once you're in the plugin's directory, switch to the netdata user.

cd /usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/
sudo su -s /bin/bash netdata

Now you can manually run the litespeed module in debug mode:

./python.d.plugin litespeed debug trace
