MONyog.ini Parameters

The MONyog.ini is the configuration file used by Monyog to read the configuration and is created when Monyog service is started for the first time. It consists of different parameters and can be used to customize a few settings as well. MONyog.ini consists of the following parameters:

  • Port: The port at which Monyog listens to the HTTP requests. The default port is 5555, but you can change it to any open port available on the system where Monyog is running.
  • Password: This field stores the obfuscated form of the admin password for Monyog UI. Hence, you cannot change/edit the admin password from here, you can do it from the Monyog UI ("User profile" icon at the top right corner)
  • Data_path: This gives the default data path at which Monyog stores the collected data from all the registered servers. A user can change the data path from here in order to store data to the desired location.
  • Registration_name: The registration name used while registering the license keys in Monyog.
  • Key: The license key used to register Monyog.
  • Install_id: This gives the unique id associated with each Monyog installation.
  • JSRuntime_size: It gives the amount of memory allocated to run all the Javascript (Monitors and Dashboard page) in Monyog. The default value is 1024 MB, it may need to be changed to higher values like 2048, 4096 when monitoring 100+ servers
  • Overview_Available: It determines whether the Overview page will be available in Monyog or not. The default value is 1, indicating Overview page will be available. User can make it 0, if they don't want this page to be displayed.
  • MONyogLogPath(Not present in the default MONyog.ini file): It can be used to change the default MONyog.log path, for e.g: MONyogLogPath=/home/ubuntu/MONyogLog/
