Pygios is a simple and light-weight server monitoring system written in Python.


To install, run `easy_install Pygios` or `pip install Pygios`.

To use, download and sample.ini, then customize to suit your application and notification requirements.

The following are partially complete or ideas for future check routines.# Ok, warning, and critical values as Decimals.CheckProcessMemoryUsage(ok, warning, critical, user=None)
# Check RSS of all running processes for processes using too much RAM.
# If user is None, check everyone, otherwise only check processes owned by the given user or users (if an iterable is
passed in).CheckINIConfiguration(ok, warning, critical, file, section, key, value)
# If ok, warning, and critical are numeric, the INI value will be coerced into a comparable type.
# Conversion failure is treated as critical.CheckFilesystemUsage(ok, warning, critical, label=None, device=None, mount=None)
# One of, and only one of label, device, or mount must be supplied.
# Ok, warning, and critical levels are Decimal percentages.CheckSMARTStatus(device=None)
# Check the HDD SMART status for all (None) or the given device.
# Any error is critical, unable to check is a warning.CheckCommandStatus(ok, warning, critical, command)
# Execute command within a shell environment and compare the exit status.
# Ok, warning, and critical may be iterable.CheckCommandOutput(ok, warning, critical, command)
# Execute command within a shell environment and compare STDOUT.
# Ok, warning, and critical may or may not be an iterable returning strings, regular expressions, or they can be
callback functions.CheckMemoryUsage(ok, warning, critical)
# Check to the amount of free memory (not including buffers or cache).
# Ok, warning, and critical may be integers (bytes), or Decimal percentage values.
# Uses proc if available, otherwise tries to parse the result of the `free` command.CheckSwapUsage(ok, warning, critical)# Monitor using /proc file descriptors.

# Determine if a network interface is usable.  If no interface is given, check them all.CheckNetworkInterfacePacketRate(ok, warning, critical, interface=None)CheckNetworkInterfaceIP(ok, warning, critical, interface)
# Check to see if the given network interface has an address other than expected.
# Ok, warning, and critical values may or may not be iterables returning strings, regular expressions, or callback
functions.CheckNetworkInterfaceTraffic(ok, warning, critical, interface, kind=enum('tx', 'rx'))
# Check bytes per second throughput on the given network interface.CheckNetworkConnections(ok, warning, critical, port=None)
# Check the number of open network connections.
# Port may be None (report all), a single integer, or an iterable returning integers.CheckNetworkPort(kind=enum('tcp', 'udp'), port)
# Check that one or more ports are being listened to.
CheckHostLatency(ok, warning, critical, host, interface=None)
CheckHostJitter()  # standard deviation check
# Ping the given host.  Levels are milliseconds as Decimal values.
# If interface is specified, route ICMP packets using the given interface only.CheckHostHops()
# TracerouteCheckGLSA()
# Check for Gentoo Linux Security Advisories.
# Any vulnerabilities is critical, unable to check is a warning.
# CheckPortageUpdates()
# emerge -uDN -p world | grep \[ | wc -l
# > 0 = warningCheckClamAV(ok, warning, critical)
# Check the age (in revisions) your ClamAV virus definitions lag behind current.
# DNS TXT query against -- e.g. "0.95.2:51:9759:1251633627:1:43:8055"CheckRBL(host, blacklist=None)
# Check if a given host has been black-listed on any of the common public RBLs, or the specific one given.
# Warning if unable to check.

CheckFolderContents(ok, warning, critical, path)
# Check for the given file(s) (string or Path objects) or for a count of the folder contents.
CheckFileAge(ok, warning, critical, path, recursive=False, kind=enum('oldest', 'newest'), date=enum('modify', 'create',
# Check file(s) identified by or contained within the given path (file reference / folder reference), optionally
recursively, for freshness.
# Levels are timedeltas.  Defaults to the newest file, if multiple or directory specified.
CheckUsers(ok, warning, critical, user=None)
# Check the number of logged-in users if user=None, otherwise check to see if the given user or users are logged in.CheckPO3Account()

CheckIMAPQuota()CheckApache2Status()CheckHTTPRequest() # Check a URL for a given status code or substring/regular expression in the returned content.CheckPHPSessions() # Check the number of active PHP session files from the folder defined in PHP.ini.
# On startup, run a PHP snippit to echo the session path.
