Debian Gkrellm Linux HD Monitor needs a hddtemp deamon ?

Hi ,
i have enclosed a picture of gkrellm configuration.
MX16 Debian Jessie Linux.

For showing the temperature the software needs a hddtemp daemon running on port 7634 !

How to make that daemon ?

A cool task. I dont know anything about that.

Perhaps the commandline tool hddtemp is sending the data over port 7634 on the computer.

Can someone help ?

Plugging 7364 and hddtemp into google finds man hddtemp.

hddtemp --daemon

I suspect it needs the daemon because hddtemp would require root to access the hard drive directly, and you shouldn't be running gkrellm as root.

You have to set the setuid bit on hddtemp, which may slightly increase the security risk. That's why Debian does not have it by default.

sudo chmod +s /usr/sbin/hddtemp

Linux Total Processes - Why monitor it?

Hi Guys, Monitoring 'Total Processes' on Linux servers has been always something you 'should' do. My question is - why? Is it relevant anymore? If you monitor memory and cpu params, you have a pretty good idea about what's going on. Is the number of processes really matter? Thanks (1 Reply)
