NAME

       monitor - Torrus Monitor.

SYNOPSIS

       torrus monitor --tree=TREENAME [options...]

DESCRIPTION

       This command starts the Monitor process for the tree TREENAME. By
       default it forks into a daemon, sets the log output file to
       /var/log/torrus/monitor.TREENAME.log, performs one monitoring cycle,
       and sleeps until the next cycle is scheduled. In daemon mode the log
       file can be reopened by sending it a SIGHUP signal.

       Monitoring cycle scheduling is controlled by two variables whose values
       may be set in torrus-siteconfig.pl:

       $Torrus::Global::monitorPeriod
           Sets the period of the monitor run to a specified number of
           seconds. Default value is 300.

       $Torrus::Global::monitorStartShift
           Controls the shift of the start of monitoring cycle. Monitor will
           run at "time() mod Period + Shift", thus allowing the data to be
           updated during the shift period. Default value is 15.

OPTIONS

       --nodaemon
           Prevents the process from becoming a daemon and sets the log to
           STDERR.

       --runonce
           Instructs the script to run once and exit. Implies --nodaemon.

       --delay=N
           Makes the daemon sleep for N minutes before starting the first
           cycle.  This would happen on the daemon startup and also after each
           configuration recompilation.  For example, when monitor and
           collector start simultaneously, the collector needs some time to
           retrieve the data being monitored.

       --debug
           Sets the log level to debug.

       --verbose
           Sets the debug level to info.

       --help
           Displays a help message.

       /var/log/torrus/monitor.TREENAME.log
