HTTPD

The HTTP Collector gathers statistics from an HTTP or HTTPS connection.

Prerequisites

The Linux Agent is required before proceeding with the setup of HTTPD. If you need to disable the Linux integration or view the unique API key assigned to your account, navigate to the Integrations page under the user account drop-down menu and click the integration designated as Infrastructure under the Integration column.

Update the Configuration File

  1. Navigate to the collectors folder, /opt/netuitive-agent/conf/collectors.
  2. Open the HttpCollector.conf file.
  3. Change the enabled setting to True.
  4. For each HTTP(s) you’d like to monitor, update the req_url list:
