Installation

Clone the repository to your pc and, assuming that pip is installed, run the following commands:

  • python setup.py sdist
  • pip install dist/django-pydash-app-*.tar.gz

Make sure that django.contrib.auth is installed and working.

Open your project’s settings.py and add pydash to INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    'pydash',
)

Open your project’s urls.py and include the pydash urls.

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    (r'^pydash/', include('pydash.urls')),
)

Make sure AppDirectoriesFinder is enabled in your STATICFILES_FINDERS:

STATICFILES_FINDERS = (
    'django.contrib.staticfiles.finders.AppDirectoriesFinder',
)

Before deploying to a live server, run the following command in order to collect the static files stored in pydash’s directory:

$ python manage.py collectstatic

Settings

There are 3 different refresh settings which are measured in miliseconds:

TIME_JS_REFRESH = 30000 #30 seconds
TIME_JS_REFRESH_LONG = 120000 #120 seconds
TIME_JS_REFRESH_NET = 2000 #2 seconds

If you wish to override the default settings, simply set those fields with the new values in your application’s settings.py file.

The refresh settings for each table are as follows:

Memory Usage - TIME_JS_REFRESH
Load Average - TIME_JS_REFRESH
CPU Usage - TIME_JS_REFRESH
Traffic Usage - TIME_JS_REFRESH_NET
Disk Reads/Writes - TIME_JS_REFRESH_NET
Uptime - TIME_JS_REFRESH_LONG
Disk Usage - TIME_JS_REFRESH_LONG
Online Users - TIME_JS_REFRESH_LONG
Processes - TIME_JS_REFRESH_LONG
Netstat - TIME_JS_REFRESH_LONG

Remote data retrieval

pyDash allows you to retrieve data remotely.

Data is returned in JSON and can be easily retrieved as long as the user agent has been authenticated by the web application.

pyDash has a list of short URLs which you can use to retrieve the specific data:

/info/uptime/ - Uptime
/info/platform/hostname/ - Hostname
/info/platform/osname/ - OS Name
/info/platform/kernel/ - Kernel
/info/getcpus/cpucount/ - Number of CPU cores
/info/getcpus/cputype/ - Type/Name of CPU
/info/memory/ - Memory Usage
/info/cpuusage/ - CPU Usage in percentage(%), free and used
/info/getdisk/ - Disk Usage
/info/getusers/ - Online Users
/info/getips/ - IP Addresses
/info/gettraffic/ - Internet Traffic
/info/getdiskio/ - Disk Reads/Writes
/info/proc/ - Running Processes
/info/loadaverage/ - Load Average
/info/getnetstat/ - Netstat

To see the format of the JSON returned datasets or data you can access any of the URLs from your browser as http://youpydaship/url , ex. http://demo.pydash.net/info/uptime/ .
