Preferred System Monitoring Application?


When you see this thread subject most of you are probably thinking gkrellm. I am right along with you. However, I am looking for something new and would like your input on a new/different system monitoring application. Also, if you know of any good themes for your favorite system monitor, or even for gkrellm, lemme know.

Thanks,
DragonM15

I have really only used GKrellM and Conky. GKrellm is nice because it is very easy to configure, but I also like the graphical effect of Conky. Then again, there are the themes/skins for GKrellm to consider...

It is hard to say really. I think it is just one of those things that comes down to personal preference. Though I can say for certain that Conky uses less resources than GKrellM, which has to count for something.

I am not familiar with the whole remote system monitoring, however I have heard of it...

Yes, GKrellM does a very good job with remote monitoring. Simply run gkrellmd on the server, and specify the IP/port on the client. You can monitor basically everything from the remote system.
