Bug#296653: ITP: symon -- symon is a system monitor.

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : symon
  Version         : 2.69
  Upstream Author : Willem Dijkstra <wpd@xs4all.nl>
* URL             : http://www.xs4all.nl/~wpd/symon

  Description     : symon is a system monitor.

symon is a system monitor for FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD and Linux. It can be used to obtain accurate and up to date information on the performance of a number of systems.

Currently the "suite" consists of these parts:

    * symon - lightweight system monitor. Can be run with privleges equivalent to nobody on the monitored host. Offers no functionality but monitoring and forwarding of measured data.
    * symux - persists data. Incoming symon streams are stored on disk in rrd files. symux offers systems statistics as they come in to 3rd party clients.
    * syweb - draws rrdtool pictures of the stored data. syweb is a php script that can deal with chrooted apaches. It can show all systems that are monitored in one go, or be configured to only show a set of graphs.
    * sylcd - symux client that drives 16x2 and 20x4 serial and usb CrystalFontz lcds. sylcd shows current network load on a specific host.
    * SymuxClient.pm - generic perl symux client. Could, for instance, be used to get the hourly amount of data that was transmitted on a particular interface.
