A quick look at 'glances' the best of htop and atop with web ui options and remote cli based monitor
I was going to do a write up on lowendspirit about this but as its already well documented I decided to do a shorter awareness-raising post here instead.
I found it at random while not looking, it was mentioned on something I was reading almost as a throwaway comment but when I looked into it I was surprised it has never come up here before as its pretty nice.
Glances is a cross-platform system monitoring tool written in Python.
- Web server
Docs and quick start guide: https://glances.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html
Quick and dirty overview:
Running in cli:
Enabling web ui (security options exist but I am not using them for this example):
glances -w -B 126.96.36.199 -p 8080
You can also connect to another server over cli with the client/server mode, just a scrrenshot from the docs and link: https://glances.readthedocs.io/en/latest/quickstart.html#client-server-mode
That's it, just a quick dirty awareness post for something new (to me) I thought I would share.
