The target PHP APC Web page must be reachable from the Centreon Poller on the specified port in the PHPAPCWEBPORT Host Macro. More information in the Configuration section.


  1. Install the Centreon package on every Centreon poller expected to monitor your PHP APC ressources:
yum install centreon-plugin-Applications-Php-Apc-Web
  1. On the Centreon Web interface, install the PHP APC Centreon Monitoring Connector on the Configuration > Monitoring Connector Manager page



  • Log into Centreon and add a new Host through Configuration > Hosts.
  • Fill the "Name", "Alias" & "IP Address / DNS" fields according to your PHP APC server settings
  • Select the Applications-Php-Apc-Web-custom template to apply to the Host
  • Once the template applied, some Macros marked as 'Mandatory' hereafter have to be configured.
PHPAPCWEBPORT(Default: '80')
PHPAPCWEBPROTO(Default: 'http')
PHPAPCWEBURLPATH(Default: '/apc.php')
EXTRAOPTIONS(Default: 'Any extra option you may want to add to every command_line (eg. a --verbose flag)')

How to check in the CLI that the configuration is OK and what are the main options for ?​

Once the plugin installed, log into your Centreon Poller CLI using the centreon-engine user account and test the Plugin by running the following command:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins// \
--plugin=apps::php::apc::web::plugin \
--mode=memory \
--hostname= \
--proto='http' \
--port='80' \
--urlpath='/apc.php' \
--warning-used='80' \
--critical-used='90' \
--warning-fragmentation='' \
--critical-fragmentation='' \

Expected command output is shown below:

OK : Memory Usage Total: 985.22 MB Used: 500.68 MB (50.82%) Free: 484.54 MB (49.18%) Memory Fragmentation: 10% | 'memory.usage.bytes'=525000704B;80;90;0;1033080832 'memory.fragmentation.percentage'=10%;;;0;100 

This command would trigger a WARNING alarm if the memory usage is reported as over 80% (--warning-used='80') and a CRITICAL alarm if over than 90% (--critical-used='90').

All available options for a given mode can be displayed by adding the --help parameter to the command:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins// \
--plugin=apps::php::apc::web::plugin \
--mode=memory \

All available options for a given mode can be displayed by adding the --list-mode parameter to the command:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins// \
--plugin=apps::php::apc::web::plugin \
