Monitoring mod_pagespeed

Josh Nichols of Rails Machine has developed a Scout plugin for monitoring mod_pagespeed, Google's Apache 2.x module for performing on-the-fly optimization in the Apache 2 HTTP Server.

mod_pagespeed has several filters that optimize a web page’s resources. These filters combine CSS files, optimize images, and more. mod_pagespeed is still under heavy development (a couple of the filters aren’t working for Josh, including image optimization). These issues shouldn’t impact the plugin’s metric reporting.

To install the plugin, just click the button when viewing a server on Scout. mod_pagespeed is listed in our plugin directory.
