SSH monitoring Django application

Project description

DEMO SITE : Visit the Skwissh demo (username test / password test) to see Skwissh in action.

More info : Github Pages for Skwissh

Python Package Index : django-skwissh

Travis : Last build status


A Django application 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) :

  • Memory
  • CPU
  • WaitIO
  • Load Averages
  • Disk usage
  • Top

But you can easily add your own ones !!

Follow @skwissh on Twitter to see latest updates.
