I'm working on a demo and need to implement a
quick-and-dirty but pretty looking remote monitoring
on Linux. I'm asking for help before I put on my
programmer hat and re-invent the (square) wheel.
I'm sure there has to be some tool out there that does
what we need.
We want to:
!) gather OS performance data (CPU, network,disk
usage) and performance data from an application (number
of transactions, pageviews, whatever)
2) collect it at a centralized location
3) and then display it with pretty bar codes, moving graphs,
etc., kinda like the Windows performance tool
We don't need for the framework to be too involved,
just flexible enough to be able to add some non-standard
data streams to it.
No need for a heavy-duty communication protocol
(read: SNMP) at this stage either.
We do need the tool to be:
- ease to program/ configure
- open source/freeware if possible
- did I mention it has to look pretty?
Thanks in advance!
