    • Remote monitoring with GKrellm(d)

      Hi all,
      i am new to OMV and Linux as well. :)
      With the help of this forum i was able to install OMV and to configure it to fit my needs.
      I get everything working (Virtualbox, Nginx, MySQL, Teamspeak, Owncloud, FTP, SMB) except remote monitoring with gkrellm.
      I would like to monitor CPU usage, Memory consumption and LAN traffic with my Windows machine.
      On my old Windows Home Server OS i used gkrellm to monitor it over LAN, but with debian i can not get i to work.
      i installed gkrellmd via apt-get

      So the deamon seems to be running, but from Windows i can not connect to it.
      If i start
      gkellm.exe -s 192.168.0.2 -p 19150 (wich worked for my Windows Home Server)
      nothing happens. No Firewall is running on the Windows machine.
      Does OMV block traffic on port 19150 by default? I made no changes to iptables or the Firewall settings under Network in the OMV control panel.

      Maybee someone has a solution for this, or know an other Program, that can monitor Linux system from a Windows OS? If possible with a desktop widget.

    • Thx for the replies,

      @tinh_x7
      WoW. =O That is an amazing Programm, i will have a look at it.
      Does ist support Desktop Widgets for Windows, or does ist run only in a browser?

      @iddqd
      That was my starting command for the working Gkrellm connection to my Windows Home server.
      So, it should work for the Debian Server too.

      Maybee there is a version mismatch between the Windows Port and the Debian version of Gkrellm. :huh:
    • After booting my Windows Machine today the GKrellm Window appears. 8o
      The Shortcut is still set to

      Source Code

      1. C:\Program Files\GKrellM\bin\gkrellm.exe" -s 192.168.0.2 -P 19150
      I only reinstalled Gkrellm on Windows, but it was the same version as before.

      I rebootet OMV a few times yesterday but that was all Virtualbox related, nothing changed to Gkrellm.

      So, i have no idea, why it is working right now.

      Thx to all who helped me with my Problem. :)
