gkrellmd - The GNU Krell Monitors Server
gkrellmd [ --help ] [ --verbose ] [ -u | --update-hz N ]
[ -m | --max-clients N ] [ -P | --port N ] [ -a | --allow-host hostname ]
gkrellmd Listens for connections from gkrellm clients. When a gkrellm client connects to a gkrellmd server all builtin monitors collect
their data from the server. However, the gkrellm process is running on the local machine, so any enabled plugins will run in the local
context (Flynn is an example exception to this since it derives its data from the builtin CPU monitor). Also, any command launching will
run commands on the local machine.
There is no support for file system mounting and local mailbox checking on the machine where the gkrellmd server is running.
Displays usage information and exits.
Prints gkrellmd version and exits.
Prints connection progress.
-u, --update-hz f
Sets the data update frequency in samples per second for the server. This is independent of and should be less than the gkrellm
client update rate. The rate can be from 1 to 10 and should be lower to minimize network traffic. A value of not much more than
1/2 the client update rate is best where it is not important to minimize network traffic.
-m, --max-clients N
Sets the maximum number of simultaneous clients allowed to connect to the server.
-P, --port server_port
Use server_port for the network connection.
-a, --allow-host hostname
Specify hosts which are allowed to connect. Multiple allow-host arguments may be given. If no hosts are specified on the command
line or in a gkrellmd.conf file, then all hosts are allowed to connect. Also, if hostname is the keyword ALL then all hosts are
allowed. This option is additive and specified hosts will be added to the hostnames listed in gkrellmd.conf files unless the
--clear-hosts option is given first.
Clears the current list of allowed hosts. Use this before any --allow-host arguments if you want command line allowed hosts to
override and not be additive to those specified in gkrellmd.conf files.
System server config which is read first. The config file may contain lines similar to the command line args. For example:
Local server config file which is read second.
User server config file which is read last.
With the exception of --allow-hosts, command line args will override options in gkrellmd.conf files.
