Application to monitor the system?
 
Hi!
I've been searching an application (not an applet) which I can use to display system statistics like the usage of the CPUs, RAM, swap file, CPU and system temperature, top processes, free disk space, eth usage, disk activity, etc... . I'm using for my notebook "gkrellm2" which is very nice and does all what I mentioned, but in this case I need something that looks better and especially uses the whole screen to display the informations. Even a console-based program like nmon (unluckily it doesn't display the temperature) would be ok. Any Idea?
Thanks a lot.

big sister maybe ?

Big Sister comes in two parts: The "Status Collector" (bbd & bsmon)
and the "Agent" (uxmon). Uxmon is meant to run on one or more machines. It's
purpose is to check the local status on the machine (e.g. CPU load, disk usage,
...) it is running and the network status of neighbouring machines (e.g. ping,
RPC, telnet to specific ports, etc.). It reports the status periodically to
the "Status Collector". The "Status Collector" saves the reported stati,
creates Web pages showing them, generates alarm messages on pre-configured
status changes, collects, stores and displays trend data and so forth.

Using Big Sister you can set up your own views. Big Sister supports grouping, summarizing, graphical displays and other features.
Kinda overkill to just monitor one system.. gkrellm2 and conky are a bit more lightweight but you said that's not what you want..

I know it's not full screen, and thus probably not what you're looking for, but maybe someone else reading this thread will use it. It's worth a read of the website - very funny. The FAQ is a work of art:

The Moaning Goat Meter

Hei guys, thanks a lot! I'll give big sister a try and eventually evaluate that moaning goat meter - you never know.
Thanks!!!

not exactly what your looking for, but you might be interested in logwatch.


It scans your log files for valuble info and emails you daily

Man, that's worth a look just because of the name, lol.

Gotta wonder where they come up with some of these things. :)

They explain that in the FAQ :)

Thanks again

htop does processes and cpu+ram+swap usage. For Temp stats I think you can use lm-sensors.

Pearlseattle 11-08-2007 12:48 PM

Wow! Amazing this htop - never heard of it before!
Thanks!!!

matthewg42 11-08-2007 12:58 PM

htop is nice :) I've not run top since I discovered it.

I'd recommend 'atop' for real-time statistics, it's just a bit more functional than other top-like programs, and to check if your system was under stress when you're away try 'sysstat'.
