Monitoring your appliance
As use of your GitHub Enterprise Server instance increases over time, the utilization of system resources, like CPU, memory, and storage will also increase. You can configure monitoring and alerting so that you're aware of potential issues before they become critical enough to negatively impact application performance or availability.
Accessing the monitor dashboard
GitHub Enterprise Server includes a web-based monitoring dashboard that displays historical data about your GitHub Enterprise Server appliance, such as CPU and storage usage, application and authentication response times, and general system health.
Recommended alert thresholds
You can configure an alert to notify you of system resource issues before they affect your GitHub Enterprise Server appliance's performance.
Setting up external monitoring
You can monitor basic system resources on your GitHub Enterprise Server appliance using either the SNMP or collectd statistics collection protocols.
GitHub Enterprise can gather data with
collectdand send it to an external
collectdserver. Among other metrics, we gather a standard set of data such as CPU utilization, memory and disk consumption, network interface traffic and errors, and the VM's overall load.
Monitoring using SNMP
GitHub Enterprise provides data on disk usage, CPU utilization, memory usage, and more over SNMP.
About system logs
GitHub Enterprise Server keeps error and message logs for system events. Logs are useful for identifying user, application and system-level actions and exceptions.
Generating a Health Check for your enterprise
You can gain insight into the general health and Git and API requests of your GitHub Enterprise Server instance by generating a Health Check.
