Installing the Monitor Extension


If performing an upgrade of the monitor extension please see Upgrading.

The monitor extension is not part of the GeoServer core and must be installed as a plug-in. To install:

  1. Navigate to the GeoServer download page.

  2. Find the page that matches the version of the running GeoServer.

  3. Download the monitor extension. The download link will be in the Extensions section under Other.

  4. Extract the files in this archive to the WEB-INF/lib directory of your GeoServer installation.

  5. Restart GeoServer

Verifying the Installation

There are two ways to verify that the monitoring extension has been properly installed.
