Monitor resources of multiple sites/services

So I have installed three websites on a VPS with EasyEngine and am curious to learn how I can monitor the resources these websites (and things like PHP, MariaDB, RAM, CPU, etc.) without needing to log in with Putty and doing a top/htop.

Does anyone have any suggestions that can give a graphical UI current hardware resources, but possibly individual WordPress installs as well?

YES! Late last night after trying to find out solutions for this type of monitoring, I came across netdata.

This seems perfect. . .but I am having trouble getting it to run behind NGINX I am new to EasyEngine and NGINX in general so I found this page

To be rather vague and not detailed enough for me to figure out how to get it working. I got the service running on the server, but when I tried to connect I was getting connection refused errors so I am pretty sure that I didn’t configure it properly to work with NGINX. And as that GitHub page seemed over my head (plus the fact that it was getting late), I had to give up on it last night.

If you, or anyone else out there has a step by step guide about getting netdata working on EasyEngine then I would greatly appreciate it.

Or maybe if there were someone out there that could just explain the running behind nginx part, that would be great (as I think I have the rest of it up and running as it should)

You can set up alerts for high usage which you will receive directly on mail.
Here’s a snap of nodequery

I do appreciate the offer, but I’m not going to spend 8-10 dollars per month for the service once it is out of beta


Then try It’s Free for 1 server and you can use multi email for more monitors. :smile:

BTW folks even netdata can send you mails on high usage! Check -

You can check for examples on how to configure it.

Thanks for providing this link. I just removed other monitoring service and installed this one on all my VPS.

HI. I have been looking into netdata too. I have it installed on several servers. I decided it made the most sense to add it to the EE admin stuff on port 22222. So in the file /etc/nginx/sites-available/22222, I added the following:

# netdata rules
location /netdata {
    return 301 /netdata/;

location ~ /netdata/(?<ndpath>.*) {
    proxy_redirect off;
    proxy_set_header Host $host;

    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Server $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_http_version 1.1;
    proxy_pass_request_headers on;
    proxy_set_header Connection "keep-alive";
    proxy_store off;
    proxy_pass http://netdata/$ndpath$is_args$args;
    gzip on;
    gzip_proxied any;
    gzip_types *;

I put this after the location ~ \.php$ rule and before the # ViMbAdmin Rules comment. Reload nginx: nginx -t && service nginx reload and access it at

I haven’t managed to get the ‘monitor multiple servers from one’ working without making it public (register at the central location) yet.
