Monitoring of Your PHP Applications

A presentation at PHPKonf in in Istanbul, Turkey by Philipp Krenn

"Every outage is like a murder mystery" is a common complaint. But it doesn't have to be! This talk gives an overview on how to monitor PHP applications from all possible sides.

We dive into:

  • System metrics: Keep track of network traffic and system load.
  • Application metrics: Gather metrics of nginx or Apache, php-fpm, and MySQL.
  • Application logs: Collect logs in a structured format or parse them to extract all the relevant information.
  • Uptime monitoring: Ping services and actively monitor their availability and response time.

And we will do all of that live since it is so easy and much more interactive that way.
