monitoring application to evaluate

Hash: SHA1

Greetings to all.

I believe that moodss, as a powerful and feature-complete monitoring
package, is ready to be included in the Red Hat Fedora distribution.
Moodss is a modular monitoring application, with both a GUI (moodss) and
a daemon (moomps). It can potentially monitor anything, local or remote,
as long as a module can retrieve and format the data for the core.
Modules can be written in Tcl, Python, Perl or C. A complete set of
modules is already included in the distribution, for monitoring Linux,
Apache, MySQL, network (SNMP), ...

A very intuitive GUI with full drag'n'drop support allows the
construction of powerful dashboards with any number of loaded modules,
graphs, pie charts, thresholds (with email alerts, scripts), user
defined formulas, ... which can then be saved and reloaded at will by
both the GUI and the daemon. Available languages for the GUI are:
English, Japanese and French.
ALong with real-time monitoring, any part of the visible data can be
stored in a SQL database (MySQL, SQLite or ODBC), so that, for example,
complete history over time can be made available in web pages, common
spreadsheet software, or presentations. The GUI can also be used to
browse the database.
For example, moodss is used by IBM to monitor its Linux mainframes, got
nice reviews (further information with screenshots at
http://moodss.sourceforge.net/), and has even made it in The Art of UNIX
Programming book, by Eric S. Raymond.

Should you want to try it, it is quite easy, as moodss is already in the
stable repository (version 17.17), but I invite you to try the latest
19.1 version instead:

~  http://jfontain.free.fr/moodss-19.1-0.fdr.1.i386.rpm
~  http://jfontain.free.fr/moomps-4.1-0.fdr.1.noarch.rpm

(you will need the tcl, tk rpms, and from the stable repository: blt and

And there is an even quicker way to try it, with a standalone Linux
binary, at:
~  http://jfontain.free.fr/moodss-19.1.i386.tar.bz2
complete with all the required software (including SQLite for trying the
database feature), which installs in a sub-directory:
~  $ tar -xjf moodss-19.1.i386.tar.bz2       # unpack it
~  $ moodss-19.1/moodss.sh cpustats memstats # now use it
~  $ LANG=ja moodss-19.1/moodss.sh           # Japanese GUI!
~  $ rm -rf moodss-19.1/                     # remove it

~  http://jfontain.free.fr/moodss-19.1-0.fdr.1.src.rpm
~  http://jfontain.free.fr/moomps-4.1-0.fdr.1.src.rpm
~  http://download.sourceforge.net/moodss/moodss-19.1.tar.bz2
~  http://download.sourceforge.net/moodss/moomps-4.1.tar.bz2

Many thanks for your time!
