hResponse - Munin plugin to display http response times from local or remote servers

This is a fork from the 'http_response_times' v2 plugin here: . I have modified it to return HTTP response times for a list of URLs (not limited to those within your domain).

System Requirements

Any linux/unix setup with hostname/wget installed.


sudo -s # or use sudo in front of each command
wget --no-check-certificate -O /usr/share/munin/plugins/h_response
chmod 755 /usr/share/munin/plugins/h_response  # you can also use: !$
stop munin-node # upstart capable ubuntu
start munin-node # upstart capable ubuntu


    env.ur1 =
    env.url2 =
    env.url2 =


Below are some suggestions in case you run into trouble.


Check for errors in:

  1. /var/log/munin/munin-node-configuration.log
  2. /var/log/munin/munin-node.log
  3. /var/log/munin/munin-update.log


Inspect the output of the following commands:

munin-run -debug h_response config
munin-run -debug h_response

Force a full run (and time it):

time su - munin --shell=/bin/bash /usr/bin/munin-cron

Check what munin related processes are running:

pgrep -l munin
