This is just a short blog – I’ve not had enough time to ensure I understand the usefulness of this – but at least on the Pi3 (which is happily running on my desk from a hard disk!!) and at least in the short time I’ve played with it – this looks like a useful tool. Reader @thebaldgeek pointed me to a system monitoring tool called Monitorix – sadly the first set of online instructions I read failed miserably – however after a short exchange of messages we got it running.
sudo dpkg -i monitorix_3.10.0-izzy1_all.deb
After that all I did was go in and update the HOST entry – I had to put in the IP number of my PI (192.168.0.55) and not 127.0.0.1 but I might have missed the point…
sudo nano /etc/monitorix/monitorix.conf
After making that change or any change the next line is essential
sudo service monitorix restart
and that was it – clearly your IP address will be different and you can change the port number in that config file –
A picture is worth 1000 words so I’ll leave you with this – which is only a TINY proportion of the available information.
