Quick Look is a package to collect system statistics and output pretty graphics and (X)HTML pages.
Quick Look allows system administrators to have a quick look on the status of their systems, without going for a more advanced (and heavier) solution.
Here are some key features of "Quick Look":
· CPU and memory usage
· Load average and process spawning rates
· I/O operations
· Network traffic rates
· Tracked network connections
· Python 2.3 or newer
· Cheetah 0.9.16 or newer
· Linux 2.4.27 or newer, 2.6.8 or newer
· rrdtool 1.0.49 or newer
· python-rrd 0.2.1 or newer
To install Quick Look into /opt/quicklook, just run the following commands:
make DESTDIR=/opt/quicklook install
cp extras/stats.cron /etc/cron.d/stats
By default, data files are stored in /var/opt/quicklook and webpages are generated into the /var/www/quicklook directory. If you wish to make changes to the output directories, or you chose a different installation directory, edit the stats.cron file before copying it.
Quick Look will now collect data and generate webpages every five minutes. No other steps are needed, but you can always run stats.py without parameters to check out the options available.
What's New in This Release:
· A problem with occasional huge spikes in graphs after rebooting was fixed, but existing data files must be converted.
