Sam Sinensky wrapped up ‘09 with a Scout plugin for monitoring Sphinx, an open-source SQL full-text search engine. The Sphinx Monitoring Plugin can be found here.

  • Queries per-minute
  • Average query time
  • Average time per rebuild
  • Index rebuilds
  • Average results returned

Like with any Scout plugin, you can plot metrics from the Sphinx Monitoring Plugin against other metrics. For example, the chart below shows the relationship between the Sphinx query rate and the server load:
