Ansible role to generate and install custom Munin memory- and cpu- per-process plugins. See project page.


This Munin plugin should work on most or all Linux systems; it uses 'ps', 'awk' and 'bash'. It's been developed on Debian and Ubuntu systems so paths may need tweaking on other distros.

Role Variables

These variables can be set for this role; see defaults/main.yml for their default values:

  • munin_resource_pp_services: The list of processes to be graphed. These are process names as reported by 'ps', also special values 'kernel' (system/kernel entries shown [in square brackets]) and 'other' (aggregate of all non-specified processes)
  • munin_resource_pp_target_dir


None that I can think of. Your target system needs to provide 'ps', 'awk' and 'bash' which are all pretty ubiquitous so probably already setup on the target system.

Example Playbook

- hosts: my_servers
     - { role: munin_resource_per_process, munin_resource_pp_services: [ "apache2", "mysqld", "kernel", "other" ] }
