More Munin monitoring – track apache web server health

Monitoring apache Monitoring internal apache information is useful if you’re using it to serve your web application requests. It has an internal module which you can load (and probably loaded by default already) called mod_status. To add monitoring for apache you need to enable mod_status module and uncomment the /server-status directory.

Book review: Instant Munin Plugin Starter

This book could not have come in a better timing. I have only recently researched an easy to maintain and gets-the-job-done monitoring tool and if you’ve dealt before with monitoring tools and network operating centers (NOC) in general then you know that some tools are just an overkill.

Disabling notifications for programmatic node updates

More than often, we Drupal developers find ourselves doing programmatic node modifications via the node_save() function. If you’re doing that as well as have messaging and notifications modules enabled in your site then given the case that your users have subscribed to content-type updates and you’re doing these ‘behind the scenes’ node_save() stuff then you’re effectively spamming them with email updates each time you run that function. To mitigate this issue, when saving...
