A Collectd Frontend with heart.

Project description

Sick Muse is an open source web application graphing RRD data stored by collectd.


Requires Python 2.6 or 2.7 and the following Python libraries:

  • tornado >= 2.4 (Available under Apache v2)

  • python-rrdtool >= 1.4 (Available under LGPL v3)

These dependencies do not ship with the library but will be resolved during the install:

pip install sickmuse

Running the Server

Sick Muse runs on the Tornado webserver which is a single-threaded non-blocking server. Once installed you run this server using the sickmuse command:


This will start the server running on the default port 8282. You can change the port using the --port option:

sickmuse --port=8080

The server does not daemonize itself so it is recommneded that you use one of the many available daemonization tools such as Supervisord, Upstart, or Runit.
