Thruk Clustering

new in release v2.24

Clustered setups provide high-availability and performance improvements at the price of higher complexity. All Thruk nodes in a cluster must use shared storage for their etc_path and var_path while the tmp_path should remain local.


  • Create shared storage for etc_path and var_path

  • Setup a load balancer

  • Double check the node url in cluster_nodes

  • Enable cluster with cluster_enabled=1


Shared cronjobs

Cluster setups will share their cronjobs, so reports or scheduling recurring downtimes will only run once in a cluster.

High Availability

Having more than one Thruk node with a load-balancer in front will share the load over all nodes and will still work if at least one node is available.
