Smokeping FastCGI

Monitoring over 1000 devices in smokeping can be a challenge. It gets SLOW. One of the best ways to speed it up is to implement FastCGI.

This is for Debian Buster but may apply to your distro.

Edit /etc/apache2/conf-available/smokeping.conf and add

    <Location /smokeping/smokeping.cgi>
            SetHandler fcgid-script

Next install libapache2-mod-fcgid

apt-get install libapache2-mod-fcgid

I also had to increase the fcgi timeout.

Edit /etc/apache2/mods-available/fcgid.conf and change FcgidIOTimeout to 600.

Restart both apache and smokeping.
