Watcher + munin

Watcher + munin

I run Raindrops::Watcher and have put "Active Mean" and "Queued Mean"
on the graph here:
http://mon.melkov.net/PeterHost-RU/spb1.melkov.net/raindrops_watcher.html

Munin reads X-Mean for active and queued connections on the socket
each 5 minutes and after send's reset POST.


Do I understand correctly that "Queued X-Mean" is average queue lenght?
"Active X-Mean" looks like the avaerage number of workers used over the
time after reset.

Why I ask is because I cannot understand what "last_data_recv" means?

X-Mean - mean last_data_recv time recorded (rounded, in milliseconds)
^^^ why this value is in milliseconds? Do you mean CPU seconds?

Yes, your understanding is correct.  My documentation is bogus, patch
below (pushed out to raindrops.git and the website)

Subject: [PATCH] watcher: fix documentation for X-* headers

I copied and pasted off the Raindrops::LastDataRecv
documentation.  While the headers and mathematical meanings are
identical, they measure different things (but for the same
purpose)
