Monitor the Pi with RPi-Monitor Raspberry

After Monitorix, Zabbix and Raspcontrol, We'll see to install another monitoring tool : RPi-Monitor.


Being regularly on forums, I came one day on a post speaking of a monitoring tool : RPi-Monitor. There is an air of Raspcontrol with the common use of Bootstrap.

  1. Install packages needed for the execution of RPi-Monitor
    apt-get install librrds-perl libhttp-daemon-perl libjson-perl
  2. Download package to install. You are going to here and you download the latest version. Attention, Xavier has changed his tool very quickly.
    wget = true o rpimonitor_1.4 - 1_all.deb

    You can replace the version numbers in the command line if you want to download with wget the file.

  3. Install the package
    dpkg-I rpimonitor_1.4 - 1_all.deb
  4. You should now have started monitoring service1._ssh
  5. Now direction http://<IP of your Raspberry>:8888


    I love the favicon !

  6. Once you find the summary of the system :RPi-MonitorWe find the essential information of the system. Small flat still, No information on partitions mounted as does Raspcontrol. CA is a little bit of a shame.
  7. In the menu, various options including a really nice : graphs and statistics (ouais j’adore ça 😉 )RPi-Monitor


    You choose the chart type (memory, disk, CPU, temperature, etc), the period and you're with a beautiful graph !

  8. Side configuration, You can have an automatic refresh all the 10 seconds, animated progress bars, and the shellinabox option. Kezako ? A console directly in your browser !
  9. To install shellinabox :
    1. Install the tool. It will relaunch RPi-Monitor him even
      apt - get install shellinabox
    2. Connect on http://<IP of your Raspberry>:4200 to allow the certificate.
    3. You can now go back on http://<IP of your Raspberry>:8888 where the tab shellinabox must appear.
    4. Go into Setup and check the box shellinabox. In the text box, Enter http://<IP of your Raspberry>:4200
    5. This is the result (root does not work with me)


      Nice non ? If you open your Raspberry remotely you can open a console without the need for additional tool.

So much for this new tool for monitoring. I find it well done, friendly but another side, the absence of the occupations of the mounted partitions annoys me a little (Yes do me not much). However I am a fan of stats. The author will make us new versions quickly thus to routinely monitor (an automatic update process would top !)
