ldap-monitor — Real-time NorduGrid monitoring tool


LDAP Grid Monitor is a set of PHP and Java scripts, providing a Web interface to the NorduGrid Information System. Should be working for any similar LDAP based service.


LDAP library
e.g., http://www.openldap.org
GD library
PHP4 library
http://www.php.net, must be compiled with LDAP and GD extensions
HTTP server
must be compiled with PHP4
Globus MDS
http://www.globus.org/mds, or a similar LDAP based service
Virtual Organisation
Is optional


Copy all the files in a folder, accessible by the HTTP server.

Modify settings.inc according to your MDS structure and liking.

Run the whole stuff by loading loadmon.php into your favorite browser.



To monitor several servers at once, add hosts and DNs to the $arrhost and, correspondingly, $arrbdn arrays in loadmon.php

isattr.inc cnvname.inc cnvalias.inc

Making output more human-readable: modify isattr.inc, cnvname.inc, cnvalias.inc. Otherwise, these files are not needed.


To prevent sites from being polled, modify array entries in blacklist.inc. Otherwise, the file is not needed.


Not needed when working without a Virtual Organisation. In such a case, remove the corresponding link from loadmon.php .


When working without the NorduGrid Information System: to make sure that the job status is defined properly, edit jobstat.php (look for adjustment instructions in the code).
