It doesn’t matter how many NGINX servers you have, or how widely they are dispersed. Your preconfigured dashboard will always accurately and effortlessly depict your production traffic workload in real time.

Have you ever wished you had a single line graph that could show you the current magnitude of rate of request traffic across all of your NGINX instances? In a matter of minutes, our NGINX integration will arm you with elegant visualizations that break down the number of currently active, reading and writing client connections, as well as rate of requests per second.

The Librato Agent gathers your server metrics straight from the NGINX stub_status module. Your NGINX configuration needs only a few additional lines to begin shipping critically important performance metrics to your preconfigured Librato dashboard.

It only takes a few minutes to get started. Just use the integrations tab to add an integration, and then tack on an NGINX integration. Our UI will guide you through the steps you need to get up and running in no time.
