(Find the Glances information widget here)
The Glances widget allows you to monitor the resources (cpu, memory, diskio, sensors & processes) of host or another machine. You can have multiple instances by adding another service block.
Please note, this widget does not need an
description on its parent service. To achieve the same effect as the examples above, see as an example:
The metric field in the configuration determines the type of system monitoring data to be displayed. Here are the supported metrics:
info: System information. Shows the system's hostname, OS, kernel version, CPU type, CPU usage, RAM usage and SWAP usage.
cpu: CPU usage. Shows how much of the system's computational resources are currently being used.
memory: Memory usage. Shows how much of the system's RAM is currently being used.
process: Top 5 processes based on CPU usage. Gives an overview of which processes are consuming the most resources.
network:<interface_name>: Network data usage for the specified interface. Replace
<interface_name> with the name of your network interface, e.g.,
network:enp0s25, as specified in glances.
sensor:<sensor_id>: Temperature of the specified sensor, typically used to monitor CPU temperature. Replace
<sensor_id> with the name of your sensor, e.g.,
sensor:Package id 0 as specified in glances.
disk:<disk_id>: Disk I/O data for the specified disk. Replace
<disk_id> with the id of your disk, e.g.,
disk:sdb, as specified in glances.
gpu:<gpu_id>: GPU usage for the specified GPU. Replace
<gpu_id> with the id of your GPU, e.g.,
gpu:0, as specified in glances.
fs:<mnt_point>: Disk usage for the specified mount point. Replace
<mnt_point> with the path of your disk, e.g.,
/mnt/storage, as specified in glances.
All widgets offer an alternative to the full or "graph" view, which is the compact, or "graphless" view.
To switch to the alternative "graphless" view, simply pass
chart: false as an option to the widget, like so:
