Linux monitor dashboard

Rene Paquin 36 Reputation points

I would like to create some web dashboards for linux servers in my scom 2019 environment. I can easily create basic performance widgets dashboards for basic metrics such as cpu usage etc but is there a way to create a widget in the dashboard that would emulate the linux top command to keep an eye on processes?

    Tricky one...
    If you're using Squaredup, the Task tile could kind of do that. It would require a click to fetch and display the result and would not be "live", but it should work.

    With native dashboards, the only thing I can think of would be a powershell grid widget. You would have to write a powershell script that would connect using SSH (with a ssh key so you don't need to input the credentials), run "top" and display the result.

    I downloaded and installed openssh on my scom management server and I can create an ssh session and run the top command in powershell itself however not sure how this translates to a powershell grid widget in scom itself. Wish we had SquaredUp but budgets being the way they are in the university sector I can only wish

    It is not easy to obtain the CPU usage of a Linux computer to display in the dashboard. It's requires strong PowerShell skills and Linux knowledge. Here are some tips for your reference.
