django-skwissh is a Django app for remotely monitoring servers using SSH.
In background (crontabed jobs) Skwissh uses Python Fabric to execute SSH commands, aka. "sensors", get the output and store timestamped values. Measures are taken every minute.
On the other side, Skwissh is able to display nice charts (linechart, piechart or simple text) with aggregated measures.
Default sensors available (tested on Ubuntu 12.04) :
- Load Averages
- Disk usage
But you can easily add your own ones !!
