Monitorix, a nice monitoring tool for Linux systems.

To install this very useful Linux monitoring tool on your Linux system, firstly add this line to your /etc/apt/sources.lst file.

deb http://apt.izzysoft.de/ubuntu generic universe

Then download the required GPG key for the apt packages.

wget http://apt.izzysoft.de/izzysoft.asc

And then add this GPG key to apt.

jason$ sudo apt-key add izzysoft.asc
OK

Then we are ready to install the software packages.

sudo apt install monitorix

This will setup the software and start the required services to get it working. Now just visit http://localhost:8080/monitorix and the Monitorix page will open.

This would be an invaluable server management tool. This is also available over the LAN, enabling someone on a mobile phone or tablet to access the page and see information about the machine at a glance. This is very easy to install and setup, making this a valuable tool to add to a Linux server machine.
