Hardware monitoring
« on: February 06, 2012, 09:56:42 AM »
Hi All,

Can anyone recommend anything I can add-on to SME8B7 in order to keep an eye on the server hardware, CPU and HDD temperatures etc?

Regards,
Del

Sysmon, there's a package just for SME8. But this is a SME7 contribs forum ;)

no, webmin must not be installed on SME as it will break the conf files..

search the forum for "webmin" and you'll find many other info

Couldn't find a forum for SME8 Contribs  :( only for the main components  :-) Seems like I was going to be wrong where ever I posted  :D But thanks for the info, I searched for Sysmon and according to my results it's not working on SME8 :-( Could you please point me to the package you're refering to? Thank you for your help.

Cheers,
Del

I think it implies that sysmon will work on sme8 but you need to enable the repositories (listed above) in sme8.
Refer http://wiki.contribs.org/SME8.0_Contribs_QA#Setup
Please search before asking, an answer may already exist.

I have SysMon and PHPSysinfo 3.0.16 both working properly on my SME 8 B7
It will work, and PHPSysInfo 3.0.16 does a better job when you can't access the Server Manager Panels.
Also, I tried Cacti for a while, but the learning curve was very steep for the time I had.
In order to get PHPSysInfo 3.0.16 installed while having it protected by admin access, just install phpsysinfo contrib and unzip the 3.0.16 version to /opt/phpsysinfo once the contrib is installed. I believe the proper way is to build a rpm package, but I didn't know how to do that. Or you can just unzip 3.0.16 to an IBay, and protect it that way. Check your error messages in PHPSysInfo for any OpenBaseDir changes you need to make for your IBay install.
