How would i install munin-node on a pfsense box

  • is this possible? how would i go about doing it?

  • If you read the FAQ of munin you see that there is a plugin for FreeBSD available.

    Since i dont know anything about munin i assume it's just a matter of installing the FreeBSD node on the pfSense.
    The documentation of munin should help you there.

    is this possible? how would i go about doing it?


    Yes it's possible. I'm running munin-node on 3 FreeBSD 7.x gateways, 1 of which is running PfSense 1.2.3-RC1. Download the package from the FreeBSD FTP mirror. At this time of writing, the latest stable version of Munin is 1.2.6. Then:

    1. pkg_add <package_name.tbz>2. rehash
    3. mkdir /var/run/munin
    4. Edit /usr/local/etc/munin/munin-node.conf to your liking..
    5. echo 'munin_node_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    6. /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ start

    Hope this helps.</package_name.tbz>

  • /etc/rc.conf doesnt' seem to exist on pfsense
    there is, however, a /etc/rc.conf_mount_rw and /etc/rc.conf_mount_ro

    i found the config.xml

    i see that other stuff uses service tags, i'm going to try that.

  • ok, this is weird as hell

    munin wont' run wihtout /var/run/munin/
    i create it, and to test if it will boot, i reboot
    i see it TRY to start, i think because of the added lines in the config.xml

    but what is weird
    the folders i create and chgrp to munin disapear on reboot
    what is that?
