Munin::Plugin::HTTP(3pm) User Contributed Perl Documentation Munin::Plugin::HTTP(3pm)

NAME

Munin::Plugin::HTTP - LWP::UserAgent subclass for Munin plugins

SYNOPSIS

The Munin::Plugin::HTTP module extends LWP::UserAgent with methods useful for Munin plugins, as well as provide a more homogeneous interface, as both exposed to the user and to the monitored services.

HTTP CONFIGURATION

HTTP plugins (that use this module) share a common configuration interface, including some common system environment variables.

[plugin] env.http_timeout 25 env.http_proxy http://mylocalproxy:3128/ env.https_proxy http://mylocalproxy:3128/ env.http_username someuser env.http_password somepassword

"env.http_timeout"
The timeout, in seconds, to use for HTTP requests. Default 25, to give time for processing.
"env.http_proxy", "env.https_proxy"
The proxy server to use when making the request. The plugins based on this module will respect the system variables, as would tools like wget and curl.
"env.http_username", "env.http_password"
The username and password to use for authentication. This will only be used if requested, for any realm that is requested. Basic auth is supported.

Don't use this with HTTP proxies, put the passwords in the front of the url in the form of "http://user:pass@proxy/" instead.

REQUIREMENTS

The module requires libwww-perl installed to work correctly.
