Use Apache ModStatus PerfStats or Similar Sensor for Apache Tomcat



I would like to get the information provided by the Apache ModStatus PerfStats and ModStatus Total for an Apache Tomcat Web Server. Is this possible? I have seen that in Apache Httpd you have to enable the mod_status module is there any similar module for the apache tomcat

Installation: Windows 2016 server Apache Tomcat Server: 8.5.15 JVM Version: 1.8.0_271-b09

Thank you in advance.

Hi there,

Did you already tried to use the HTTP Apache ModStatus Sensor: https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/http_apache_modstatus_perfstats_sensor The HTTP Apache ModStatus PerfStats sensor monitors performance statistics of an Apache web server using mod_status over HTTP.

Yes I have set up the Apache modstatus sensor but it does not return any data, I think that happens because tomcat does not use the mod_status module

In this case, you can try to use the HTTP Data Advanced Sensor to query the corresponding endpoint from your Apache tomact.
