Apache monitoring tools

What are Apache monitoring tools?

Apache monitoring tools are software tools used for collecting and viewing health and performance metrics for Apache web servers. Apache HTTP Server is the most popular web server globally and a critical component of many websites and online services today. Apache monitoring tools can help you ensure the stability and availability of Apache web servers and protect the performance and user experience of your websites.

With a robust multi-vendor web server monitoring tool, you can collect and analyze key performance metrics for various types of web servers, detect unplanned outages and server restarts, and obtain the information and diagnostic data you need to simplify and accelerate Apache, Nginx, or IIS troubleshooting, performance tuning, and capacity planning.

See the services and databases related to your web server, along with all key metrics.

The limitations of Apache monitoring tools

There are a number of built-in and third-party commercial or open-source Apache monitoring tools available now. Tools like Apache's built-in Status module and log analyzers can be used to collect and display statistics describing the current state of Apache web servers and to parse and analyze the contents of log files. These types of Apache monitoring tools are however, limited in terms of the diagnostic data and historical and infrastructural context they provide. For firms looking to take a more sophisticated approach to web server monitoring, APM tools like Dynatrace can:

  • Supply you with detailed data on the current state of your web servers as well as on historical trends and patterns
  • Provide you with intelligent baselining, root-cause analysis, and proactive alerting capabilities other Apache monitoring tools lack
  • Enable you to monitor not only your web servers but all components and dependencies in your tech stack including Linux performance
See requests, response sizes, and busy workers.

Go beyond one-dimensional Apache monitoring tools with Dynatrace

Dynatrace's AI-powered full-stack APM solution allows you to take a proactive approach to web server monitoring. Dynatrace's unified monitoring toolset supports a wide range of web server technologies including Apache HTTP Server and offers you deep visibility into the performance of all services comprising your web applications. Monitor and manage the performance of your web services, web containers, database requests, and more in real time and over time.

Dynatrace is not only easier to use and more powerful than other Apache monitoring tools but also fast. Simply install Dynatrace on your host, and OneAgent automatically detects and activates monitoring instrumentation for all services, processes, and infrastructure in your tech stack. Incorporating tools for JVM profiling, network monitoring, and UX testing, Dynatrace provides you with insight into all components and factors affecting the performance and user experience of your web, mobile, cloud, and streaming applications.

From intuitive dashboards, view all relevant meta-information, metrics, and events for your web servers plus details about network traffic, TCP requests, connectivity, and more. For Apache web servers, analyze web server requests, examine response time hotspots, and drill down for detail into service execution time to identify CPU-hogging Apache modules.

Dynatrace combines deep-dive APM with digital experience monitoring, infrastructure monitoring, enterprise application monitoring (including Citrix troubleshooting tools), an event log analyzer, and more to provide you with all the tools you need to easily and effectively optimize the performance and user experience of your applications—whether on the web, in the cloud, or in your data center.
