I am very new to Chef Server and Chef Chef client. Also, new to Ruby in which Chef was written.
I have a problem monitoring the performance of chef server's response time when Chef client is running and getting information from it. By the way, our setup is 1 Chef server, 1 Chef client as the node and 1 Chef client for the workstation (where we execute knife commands).
Currently, our logs output information only contain the elapsed time after Chef client was run,
[root@sg8tb08208 chef]# chef-client [2013-02-13T15:16:02+09:00] INFO: *** Chef 10.18.2 ***
..........more log info..................then
[2013-02-13T15:16:11+09:00] INFO: Chef Run complete in 8.782384 seconds
but we also need to log or at least know the response time of the server and the network between them. Is this possible?
I have been scouring the web for 2 days now, and I can't even find a documentation about it. Or even, someone who tried it already. It would be very helpful even to know what is the average response time of a Chef server given n number of client/nodes connecting to it.
Your help would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
UPDATE: I am trying to use revealcloud to monitor the server performance. This connects to CopperEgg. I have already set up the api_key and the proxy but I keep getting an error.
