    I’m using cacti with snmp on the host.
    I wrote snmp passthrough scripts, allow me to graph nice stats, like : http://tof.canardpc.com/view/ac0be9e0-a4d9-4d0a-9a5b-cb85532e9ef4.jpg
    That can be pretty useful to follow trends you wouldn’t see just looking at immediate figures.

      Cacti is a great tool! Unfortunately I have not looked at it since about 2005, and I am sure it has only continued to get better.

      I used to do a lot of Cisco deployments, and I built my initial monitoring tool for our Cisco support services with Cacti. The graphing is wonderful. And one can do amazing things with SNMP. I tried Nagios as well, but for some reason it seemed more server focused, and less on network gear with SNMP.

      The graphing in Zabbix is very good also. I usually use it for looking at CPU and memory utilization, as well as temperatures.

    Hi Rolf, thanks a lot for the idea of using zabbix to monitor GPU temperatures. I managed to set it up and parse Claymore logs for GPU temps. But I don’t know how to get your nice table-like stats page?

    All I can do now is go to “Monitoring” then “Latest data”.

          Would you possibly know how to highlight in the data overview screen if a temperature value is too high? Say over 80 degrees?

          I know it’s probably also related to convert log string to numeric values..no idea how to do that either.

          Many thanks

          Should I use windows port version of awk and tail to achieve it?
