CakePHP 3 Plugin for Monitoring Server Stats


  • To install the CakeServerMonitor plugin, you can use composer. From your application's ROOT directory (where composer.json file is located) run the following:

    composer require jeffersonsimaogoncalves/cakephp-server-monitor

  • You will need to add the following line to your application's config/bootstrap.php file:

    Plugin::load('JeffersonSimaoGoncalves/CakeServerMonitor',['bootstrap' => true]);


CakeServerMonitor currently supports notification via email. You can configure recipients' email addresses in your applications 'config/bootstrap.php' file using overwriting the key:


Scheduling task

The last step to make this work is to add a cron job. You can do so by adding a similar line as shown below to your system's crontab file. Do remember to update the path to your own project. The following cron job runs at 1 am every day, you can change it to your own preference.

* 1 * * * cd path && bin/cake monitor run


CakeServerMonitor does provide some customisation options.

  • Changing email profile

by default CakeServerMonitor uses the default profile to send an email. You can change it to your own preference using the key:

  • Changing checking stats

by default CakeServerMonitor checks following stats:

  • Disk Space
  • MySql Process
  • Nginx Process

Under the hood, each checker is actually a class under JeffersonSimaoGoncalves namespace. You can overwrite what checkers to run via the CakeServerMonitor.commands key:

        'disk_space' => 'JeffersonSimaoGoncalves\CakeServerMonitor\CommandDefinition\DiskSpace',
        'mysql' => 'JeffersonSimaoGoncalves\CakeServerMonitor\CommandDefinition\MySql',
        'nginx' => 'JeffersonSimaoGoncalves\CakeServerMonitor\CommandDefinition\Nginx',

You can remove any checkers above so it won't run.

  • Creating your own checker

As you might have already guessed, you can create your own checker to extend CakeServerMonitor's abilities. To do so, creates a class extends from JeffersonSimaoGoncalves\CakeServerMonitor\CommandDefinition\CommandDefinition abstract class and implement its defined abstract methods.

After that, add your own checker to the CakeServerMonitor.commands key as shown in previous section.
