Munin is a network resource monitoring tool that can help to analyze resource trends and problems. It is designed to be very plug and play. A default installation provides a lot of graphs with almost no work. Munin 2.0.25 was released on November 24, 2014. If you want to install Munin 2.0.25, add third party backport repository and install it. Also read munin installation on Ubuntu, Debian & Mint systems. Alternatively you can install other network monitoring tools such as Zabbix, Monitorix, Cacti, Nagios & Icinga2.
Munin uses RRDTool and the framework is Perl which was developed by Tobi Oetiker. Munin has a master/node architecture in which the master connects to all the nodes at regular intervals and asks them for data. It then stores the data in RRD files, and (if needed) updates the graphs.
Using Munin you can easily monitor the performance of your computers, networks, servers, services (apache, mysql, dns, harddisk, mail server), SANs, applications, weather measurements, etc…
