SysUsage 3.0 Perl Tool in Thorough Rework

Dec 16, 2009

The SysUsage monitoring tool is available in a new version 3.0 and provides a completely reworked Web interface.

The perl program works on all UNIX-like platforms and shows details about CPU, memory, I/O, network, devices, files, processes and temperature sensors. Views show diagrams generated using rrdtool. Threshold notifications can be through e-mail or Nagios reports.

Developer Gilles Darold completely rewrote the code and created a new Web user interface. It also makes it easier to build RPM, Debian and Slackware packages from source code. Self-styled plug-ins in any programming language can be embedded.

SysUsage 3.0 is under GPLv3 and ready for download as source tarball from the project page. You can get a taste of the Web interface from a live demo by clicking the tabs across the top.

    We've been using it for a few years to monitor our Linux systems. We found the alternatives where either too much or too little, with SysUsage being "just right" in capabilities and ease of use.

    Looking forward to trying the new release.
