In order for you to install Munin you must have the following:

Building munin

In order to build munin, you need:

  • A reasonable Perl 5 (Version 5.10 or newer)
  • The Module::Build perl module
  • The perl modules listed in "requires" in Build.PL

Developers / packagers need, in addition to the above

  • The dependencies listed in "test_requires" in Build.PL
  • RRDtool perl bindings

In order to build the documentation, you need:

  • sphinx

Installing RRDtool bindings

The RRDtool perl bindings needed by munin are normally only installed for the system perl. To install munin using a separate perl installation, add the Alien::RRDtool perl module.

Running munin

Munin master

In order to run the munin master, you need:

  • A reasonable perl 5 (Version 5.10 or newer)
  • All the perl modules used when building Munin
  • A web server (optional)

Munin node

The munin node is lighter on the requirements, and need only the following perl modules:

  • Net::Server
  • Net::Server::Fork
  • Time::HiRes
  • Net::SNMP (Optional)

The Munin plugins run by the node have their own needs. Many plugins need libraries or utilities related to what they monitor. Please refer to each plugin.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
