GKrellM SNMP Plugin

Your great monitor stack GKrellM is now able to read SNMP agents.

There is one great system monitor tool out there. It’s GKrellM, a single process with many readers stacked onto your display.

Say you don’t want to be limited to monitor only your box but e.g. your router. You can access it’s snmp agents values with the gkrellm_snmp plugin.

GKrellM SNMP is a plugin for GKrellM. It features a very configurable set of additional monitors which allow the users to display SNMP values inside GKrellM. I.e. one can monitor remote boxes and SNMP enabled devices like most routers and some switching equipment. Most interesting SNMP variables are cpu and network load, temperature, disk space and alike.

The current stable version is 1.1 (which is a licence update to 1.0).

There are still some old (GTK 1, GKrellM 1, UCD-SNMP) versions around.

Please note that the branch on sourceforge isn’t up to date. The project is maintained here, again.

The first screenshot (left) shows gkrellm version 0.9 while the second (right) shows version 0.10. Beneath gkrellm_snmp are the fan and volume plugin visible.

The third shot is GKrellM 1.0.4 with my Justiny theme. It’s enhanced for tiny (read 1024x768) LCDs. You can see that the monitor “Scy7” is shaded indicating an error. The corresponding tooltip show that the node is down. The last shoot is just some part of GKrellM showing the new gkrellm_snmp features.

The GKrellM SNMP Project ist listed on Freshmeat.

It’s also listed on Linux.Org.
