I prefer transmission - it's also been awesome for me. I can control it remotely from a terminal, a browser, or my phone. Handy!!!
I don't really want to buy another touch interface (that's what my orbiters are for) and I want to use my own speakers so the Logitech SB products that are still offered don't appeal.
I'm looking at putting squeezeslave on a plugcomputer (dreamplug) (http://www.globalscaletechnologies.com/t-dreamplugdetails.aspx#hw_block). By chance do you have any experience with this?
also have a look at the existing data logger plugin..LOL, yeah that could work :-P
I think we need to see this larger then only the server. I agree that if you just want a cpu graph, you can do it manually with hand-written scripts/files/...
But since linuxmce provides a lot more (dhpc, dns, proxy, firewalling...), we can take this up a higher level. If you put in tools like cacti, you can start monitoring your whole network/house. Think about all computers, switches, routers, power-meters... The key-element here is the user-friendly stuff. People need to be able to do it themselves, simple. With this, you gain that more people will use it, less people will ask you questions...
And it must be flexible...
I don't agree, cacti is installed in about 2 minutes. Without the need of knowledge for any scripts, and cacti does a lot more then mrtg (services, tresholds, syslogging, weathermaps...). The user interface is so great, that you don't want anything else. When i explain my colleagues/customer cacti in 15 minutes, they're off with it, without any linux knowledge! And resources? If you start with 'own script's, at the end, your resources will be must higher then with cacti.
For me? When you want that people use 'your' system, you need to give them something that's simple.
Once they need to start changing config files, they are gone/lost. That's the only reason why windows gains above linux for the normal computer user.
But of course,everybody his choice.
