Munin : Set Thresholds2016/06/06

The monitoring target items are set as plugins and thresholds are defined in some plugins by default, but if you'd like to add more thresholds to a plugin, configure like follows.
[1] It's possible to see plugins like follows.
# current enabled plugins are located under the directory below

ls /etc/munin/plugins

cpu        forks          interrupts   netstat      swap
df         fw_packets     irqstats     open_files   threads
df_inode   http_loadtime  load         open_inodes  uptime
diskstats  if_ens3        memory       processes    users
entropy    if_err_ens3    munin_stats  proc_pri     vmstat

# installed plugins are located under the directory below

ls /usr/share/munin/plugins

acpi                      nvidia_
amavis                    open_files
apache_accesses           open_inodes
apache_processes          openvpn
apache_volume             perdition
[2] It's possible to display current values for each plugin.
# display values for cpu plugin

munin-run cpu

user.value 7798
nice.value 4496
system.value 3589
idle.value 1739548
iowait.value 19460
irq.value 0
softirq.value 41
steal.value 83
guest.value 0

# display values for df plugin

munin-run df

_run.value 1.41642779480083
_dev_mapper_ubuntu__vg_root.value 7.65805319624569
_dev_shm.value 0
_run_lock.value 0
_sys_fs_cgroup.value 0
_dev_vda1.value 22.565656742098
_run_user_0.value 0
[3] Set threshold's value in munin.conf like follows.
⇒ [plugin name].[field name].[warning | critical] min-value:max-value
The field name is just the one which is displayed when executing "munin-run" command. The min-value or max-value can be omitted.
vi /etc/munin/munin.conf
# set threshold on target node

    use_node_name yes
# set 80% of warning and 90% of critical for user field in cpu plugin

    cpu.user.warning :80
    cpu.user.critical :90
# set 80% of warning and 90% of critical for root partition field in df plugin

    df._dev_mapper_ubuntu__vg_root.warning :80
    df._dev_mapper_ubuntu__vg_root.critical :90
[4] If you configured notification setting and a value is over from the threshold's value, the email is sent like follows.
