HTTP Apache ModStatus Totals Sensor




we want to use the HTTP Apache ModStatus Totals Sensor and the HTTP Apache ModStatus PerfStats Sensor to monitor the status of connections, CPUload and so on. My problem is that PRTG automatically append "/server_status?auto" at the end of the URL. Apache can't understand "/server_status?auto" but "/server-status?auto" works. Is it a bug, feature or maybe wrong configuration of our apache?

I'm sorry but there is indeed a little bug in this sensor.

The description of the url-field states "The 'server-status' part is added by PRTG" but unfortunately it adds 'server_status'.
Depending on your settings in apache it should be no problem adding the 'server-status' manually to the url in PRTG as a workaround (for example from 'http://<your server dns>/' to 'http://<your server dns>/server-status').

This issue is already fixed and will be released with one of our next releases.

Kind Regards

Your right i can edit the server-staus-string but i was confuse about the description. I read the manuall of the sensor to late.
