CPU & Memory Run Shell Commands via HTML on a client machine

Hi guys, so, I have a server running an sqlite database which is accessed by many client machines working as hardware testers, whenever something fails and needs to be replaced the operator would have to enter the Serial Number of the part being replaced as well as some other data. and additionally, i would like to store some log files from the tester into this database, extracting this logfiles is not easy as it would involve typing long commands on a terminal by people who know nothing about linux. and i preffer not having them play with commands because it would complicate things.

Is there a way that i can just have some button in the server's webpage that executes a set of commands on the client side to grab these files and put them in a tarball so the operator only has to attach them like an email attachment for the database to store them?

Kind of like this one, but the script would be executed on the client side:

Thanks all Smilie

bsmconv, bsmunconv - enable or disable Solaris Auditing SYNOPSIS
/etc/security/bsmconv [rootdir]... /etc/security/bsmunconv [rootdir]... DESCRIPTION
The bsmconv and bsmunconv scripts are used to enable or disable the BSM features on a Solaris system. The optional argument rootdir is a list of one or more root directories of diskless clients that have already been configured. See smdiskless(1M). To enable or disable BSM on a diskless client, a server, or a stand-alone system, logon as super-user to the system being converted and use the bsmconv or bsmunconv commands without any options. To enable or disable BSM on a diskless client from that client's server, logon to the server as super-user and use bsmconv, specifying the root directory of each diskless client you wish to affect. For example, the command: myhost# bsmconv /export/root/client1 /export/root/client2 enables BSM on the two machines named client1 and client2. While the command: myhost# bsmconv enables BSM only on the machine called myhost. It is no longer necessary to enable BSM on both the server and its diskless clients. After running bsmconv the system can be configured by editing the files in /etc/security. Each diskless client has its own copy of configu- ration files in its root directory. You might want to edit these files before rebooting each client. Following the completion of either script, the affected system(s) should be rebooted to allow the auditing subsystem to come up properly initialized. FILES
The following files are created by bsmconv: /etc/security/device_maps Administrative file defining the mapping of device special files to allocatable device names. /etc/security/device_allocate Administrative file defining parameters for device allocation. ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Availability |SUNWcsr | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Interface Stability |Obsolete Committed | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ SEE ALSO
auditconfig(1M), auditd(1M), audit_startup(1M), audit.log(4), audit_control(4), attributes(5) See the section on Solaris Auditing in System Administration Guide: Security Services. NOTES
bsmconv and bsmunconv are not valid in a non-global zone. These commands are Obsolete and may be removed and replaced with equivalent functionality in a future release of Solaris. SunOS 5.11 20 Jan 2009 bsmconv(1M)
