Hello,

I'm using xampp 1.7.3 on windows, the non install version. I was able to install several stats (like awstats) but I am worry about the the load that apach and PHP is generating on the PC. Is there a way of monitoring the apache load and PHP load?

I mention that the apache , php and mysql are not installed as services on Windows.

Windows 7 Task Manager gives details of CPU and Memory usage for individual running processes like the Apache server httpd.exe in real time with the frequency of updating the data configurable in the View menu item.

The Task Manager window could be resized to only show a small area and left running in a suitable location on the desktop or opened and perused when ever you suspect an excess server loading is occurring.

A freeware app. HSLAB Lite may also do the tick for you form here:
http://apache-monitor.com/hslab-http-monitor-lite.php

Or from here:
http://www.windows7download.com/win7-hs ... mrrnb.html

There are more robust commercial versions available of this HSLAB application on their web site.

I have not tested so can't recommend this app. but it looks promising.

Good luck and best wishes. :)

Sorry forgot to mention that is about windows xp.

Thank you for the suggestion, HSLAB Lite did the trick for me regarding monitoring apache server.
It provides info about requests/sec and B/sec that is what I was looking for.

While configure it I ran into a bug, if you use the httpd.config Wizard the httpd.conf file will be auto-generated with an error and your apache will not start. To solve this you need to open httpd.conf that is located in WINDOWS_PATH\xampp\apache\conf and edit
line 484
Code: Select all
 nclude "conf/extra/httpd-info.conf"


to
Code: Select all
include "conf/extra/httpd-info.conf"


I'm not sure if there are any information about PHP but at least I can monitor the load on the apache.

Thank you very much!!!

Task Manager works in XP in the same way too.
