Nginx is a great lit­tle web server. I have posted pre­vi­ously about using it as a reverse proxy. Whether you're using it as a reverse proxy or as a nor­mal web server you will prob­a­bly even­tu­ally want to know what its doing over time so you can adjust resources as necessary.

The other day I threw together a ZenPack to make it eas­ier to setup mon­i­tor­ing on new Zenoss instances. It con­tains a com­mand data source “check_nginx_ng” which is a slightly mod­i­fied ver­sion of Chris Kelly's check_nginx_ng which in turn was based on check_nginx by Mike Adolphs. So thanks to them for doing the major­ity of the work! If your inter­ested you can pick it up over on GitHub.
