Monitoring a number of FreeBSD hosts

Author: JT Smith

Daemon News: "When running a number of servers it is at least interesting, but mostly yet important to be informed about the state of each system. Generally, it is desirable to get
essential information with a quick look. Thus monitoring software should provide data permanently and concisely. Displaying system data by graphical means is
nice, but often unsuitable when monitoring via a modem line or on a (perhaps wireless) PDA. Presenting data on a standard terminal display may seem to be a
little bit old-fashioned, but is still the most generic approach. A remote host monitoring software doing so is rmonitor which will be described in this article."
