    Hi everyone, first a big thank you for this forum and the continue work of eva2000 related to Nginx.

    I think to create a plugin who has the feature of monitoring a website SSL certificate and check everything is okay

    this plugin will be installed in the same server who has all the Server Blocks Nginx, that mean a self hosted monitoring.


    I want to avoid resources used cpu and memory, so the functionality of plugin will be different in comparison to traditional monitoring system.

    Create a module in Nginx or Lua to intercept all error logs related to SSL, that means intercept this directive error_log

    server {
    # Server configuration
    error_log /var/log/error.log;
    }

    My main question is, does nginx error_log register (logged) all error related to SSL?
    If the above question is true, what do you think about this idea?
