Monitoring your GitHub Enterprise Server 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 collectd and send it to an external collectd server. 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.
GitHub Enterprise uses syslog-ng to forward system and application logs to the server you specify in the Management Console settings.
Monitoring using SNMP→
GitHub Enterprise provides data on disk usage, CPU utilization, memory usage, and more over SNMP.
