REM Monitoring Public Beta

Here is the first package for the public beta.

To install this, you will need to have a Linux, FreeBSD or OS X operating system.

You will need python2.6 installed.

Install the PyYaml, jsonlib, setuptools, and Pygments Python packages.

You should have rrdtool and the snmpwalk binary installed, via Net-SNMP, installed on your system.

To install, unzip (sorry about OS X cruft), cd into the main directory, and you will find:

dropstar                jquery_drop_widget      procblock               rem_monitor             unidist

$ cd unidist ; sudo python2.6 setup.py install

$ cd ../procblock/ ; sudo python2.6 setup.py install

$ cd ../dropstar/ ; sudo python2.6 setup.py install

$ cd ../jquery_drop_widget/ ; sudo python2.6 setup.py install

These are also available from PyPI, if you wish to install them via easyinstall.

To run the application:

$ cd ../rem_monitor/

$ ./procblock monitor.yaml

Then point your browser to: http://localhost:2001/system_monitor/monitor

Substitute the hostname for localhost, if connecting remotely.

That’s it.  A proper installer for CentOS, Fedora and Debian, and usage documentation, will be forthcoming in the next few days.
