Adding an Apache httpd server data source

To monitor the performance of the Apache web server resources, you can add the Apache httpd server data source to the Resource Monitoring Service web UI. For example, if you want to view the throughput, requests rate, and CPU usage of the Apache server, you add it as a data source.

Procedure

  1. Start HCL Quality Server and access the Resource Monitoring Service : https://hostName:portNumber/rm/index.html.
  2. Click Sources > Add an Apache httpd server.
  3. In the New Apache httpd server dialog box, for Target host, specify the IP address or host name and port number of the machine where Apache HTTP server is installed.
  4. In Path to server status page, specify the name of the page to view the status of the Apache HTTP server.
  5. In Security, complete the following steps:
    1. If the application server is secured with TLS/SSL, select the Secured with TLS/SSL check box.
    2. To accept the server certificate, select the Trust self-signed certificate check box.
    3. To ignore verification of the host name in the certificate, select the Do not verify host name check box.
    4. If the server requires login credentials, select the Require credentials check box and supply the User name and Password.
  6. Click ADD to add the source to the dashboard.
  7. Select the resource counters to be monitored and click Save. To add or remove the counters later, click the Configure icon Configure.
