If you think Glances, presented yesterday have too many information to monitor your server, or if eSM is not what you are looking for (You want something even easier), there is the pretty Web-VMStats, to simply and in a pretty webpage, monitor your linux system (Processes, Ram Memory, Swap, Disk I/O, System, CPU,…) through fancy charts in real time.
Let’s see how to install it
1) Install git
We will use directly the latest version on their git repository. If you don’t have git installed, simply run as root:
apt-get install git
2) Clone the repository in /var/www
cd /var/www git clone http://github.com/joewalnes/web-vmstats
3) Download and install their websocket daemon in the newly created web-vmstats folder
In my case, 32b (for my virtualmachine), so I do:
cd web-vmstats wget https://github.com/joewalnes/websocketd/releases/download/v0.2.9/websocketd-0.2.9-linux_386.zip
Then unzip it and remove the files not needed (Need only the executable)
unzip websocketd-0.2.9-linux_386.zip rm INSTALL websocketd-0.2.9-linux_386.zip
4) Simply run the web-vmstats executable
And now you should have access to the graphs from http://YOURIP:9231
web-vmstats will display in realtime very simple information to help you monitor your server or linux system.
