  • This and Scout as a whole is very nice, if a little expensive.

    Expensive?

    1. Uses a ruby version that conflicts with CentOS default ruby. (Which is fine, a recompiled / custom opt/path ruby install is fine in these cases.)

    2. Uses a ruby version that conflicts (and actually breaks) OpenNebula SunStone's ruby (thus we can't use it.)

    3. This is rather resource intensive from our testing so far.

    Anything that costs more than $7/month is expensive for LET. ;)

    And ya, I think it was meant for dedicated boxes where you can afford the overhead.

    $75 a month for checking 5 servers with one min checking is a little steep, but as i said it's good. Used it before for non personal stuff :)

    Scout is pretty cool, but I'd recommend Glances over Scout anyday, https://github.com/nicolargo/glances it's literally the same thing but lighter on resources, runs via the CLI so no funky setup needed to view it etc


    Easy install is shown here : http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/linux-install-glances-monitoring-tool/

    It does have a nice and clean proc/disk display.

    As GoodHosting mentioned, I ended up with Ruby from source to get this running in CentOS 6 (repo version was too old, need >=1.9), but the setup is simple enough.

    Thanks for the Glances link, I like the password option to it, going to give it a try.

    From that github link, I did not see where you need to pay?

    @linuxthefish meant https://scoutapp.com/ [which created Scout Realtime]

    The Scout software is closed source. scout_realtime is an open source sample.
