  • Serve Munin Simple
    I rediscovered Munin. To my surprise it is written entirely in Perl. I remember Munin from years ago... It still seems healty and maintained and lies ready on your Deb-Repositories. So I followed the Easy Install Guide... Which really is easy, but fails to mention that you need to install your own HTTP-Server to serve the HTML-reports. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Code review wanted: munin-plugin, a rust library
    A bit of background, which may make understanding my choices in this lib easier: Munin is a resource monitoring tool using rrdtool, usually run in a Server/Client Setup. The client accepts plugins which are just executables in a directory. Usually written in a scripting language, but it actually doesn't matter. Data is fetched every 5 minutes, plugins are first run with a config argument to spit out a munin graph... - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • munin-pihole-plugins: mastering munin monitoring, meeting multiple marvellous milestones & more!
    Munin plugins and management script for monitoring various Pi-hole® statistics. - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago
  • 5V4A usb hub
    When you do not have enough power you would get errors because looking up the plots would simply fail. Sounds more that there is one disk which is slower. I had one 2TB external usb which was really slow and the latency of lookups was through the roof. Are you on linux ? Then install it shows latency of the disks out of the box. - Source: Reddit / 12 months ago
  • long response time
    What os ? On linux install it will give you disk latency information. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • (Re-) Introducing munin-pihole-plugins
    Munin plugins for monitoring Pi-hole®. Transforms a server into a powerful monitoring platform, as simple as one, two, three, ...four. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Network And Temp Monitoring
    Munin might be something to consider. It has a multitude of options and clients. Including plugins for raspberry's that can report temperatures etc. There is also a lightweight script as a node implementation. I have it running on my openwrt router and my zyxel NAS as well as a bunch of pis. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • A "filesystem" designed for chia plots (PlotFS)
    Wow,nice idea go the same idea as u/databender007 ... Any numbers on it ? Https:// Displays latency numbers for filesystems out the box. Though I don't know if your filesystems stats go with their plugins. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • How can I monitor multiple containers on a server, including custom metrics?
    Let's not forget [Munin]( here! Simple, fast, open-source. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Lightweight Netdata alternative for RPi4 ?
    There's munin, have you had any experience with that? - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Munin Monitoring: munin-pihole-plugins
    You might know me as that Unbound guy, or maybe even that dnsproxy guy. Today I would like to make myself known as that Munin guy, and introduce munin-pihole-plugins for Munin Monitoring. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • PiHole's Chronometer display blinks every 5 or 6 seconds as screen rewrites
    If you're looking for a more general monitoring system that can also monitor Pi-hole, you could consider looking at Munin. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Upgraded free tier F1-micro VM to an E2-Micro??
    I use mine as a Munin master. I've had it handling 20+ nodes, which is about the limit for CPU within a Skylake F1-micro core. It renders the graphs to RAM every five minutes so that I don't have to wait or use up a bunch of I/O when reading them, but this means RAM is very tight considering it also has to keep the RRD/database files in memory. Having extra RAM will mean I can potentially do other things with it... - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Searching for a user friendly tool for simple monitoring and tasks
    Not sure about launching scripts, but take a look at Munin - I used that in the past and there is a Debian package for it. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • [help] Linux server information through Tasker?
    I use munin, which you can then poll and parse from Tasker as you see fit. I do actually have this linked to an InfluxDB, and Grafana providing most of the information I need (hits, misses, memory, network performance, database queries, etc etc). - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • All distros keep freezing
    I would start with something constantly monitoring my resources (cpu, memory, maybe temperature) and puting it to some kind of graph. Leaving it running for a time just to realize 'oh, it's frozen' afterwards won't give much info here ;-) and the collected data can be viewed after the freeze. Munin is lightweight, if you would like to try anyway. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • Looking for a cheap tool to make some cheap monitoring.
    Rather than writing something from the ground up maybe check out something like Munin where you should be able to write some plugins easily to capture what you want to track. - Source: Reddit / about 2 years ago
