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 inde-
pendent 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
-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
Clears the current list of allowed hosts. Use this before any --allow-host argu-
ments 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 simi-
lar 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
