Status / overview page?
« on: October 10, 2012, 07:57:02 am »
Maybe it would be nice to have somewhere a status page with different kind of information?
Could be a nice orbiter page?

  • Date of today
  • Actual hour
  • MOTD
  • Temperature of today <<<Not sure that it belongs on a dashboard page>>>
  • Forcast weather
  • Sunrise/sunset
  • Active lights
  • Tripped sensors
  • Local news / headlines <<<Not sure that it belongs on a dashboard page>>>
  • Server statistics
  • Number of movies, music, pictures...
  • Server Networking
  • ...



I've started a webpage that gathers all this information a bit: http://oniriabe.dyndns.org:1111/status
Let me know if there are other intresting things to put on this page.
The thing above in color are already covered.

Suggestions are more then welcome. I'm not a programmer but a netwerk engineer.
So everything is a bit try-and-error, copy/paste... ;)

Once everything is added/checked... i can start with a more proper layout.
And of course, it's better to integrate this into the administration pages, and not public...



If you want to try/have it:

  • Download: http://oniriabe.dyndns.org:1111/packages/status.tgz
    To a webfolder (fe /var/www/status/)
  • Unzip it with 'tar -zxvf status.tgz'
  • Browse to it (fe http://192.168.80.1/status)

  • The module phpsysinfo can be installed with 'sudo apt-get install phpsysinfo'
    But isn't mandatory for this page. On the other hand, gives you nice information about your hardware.
    Just create a symbolic link in your folder to it: "sudo ln -s /usr/share/phpsysinfo phpsysinfo"

If you search the forum, you will find a couple of times people have suggested this...

Up to now, nobody thought it interesting enough to implement it.

I like the concept of a dashboard for this. It is something quite useful to have today's weather, sunrise, sunset, alarm status (and activity), and any alerts all on one page. Clicking on the alarm status will, of course, take one to the alarm panel. Having a mini map of the house or a generic lighting status would be cool. This page can get too busy too fast. I like the necessary item summary, nothing more. Detail pages already exist for many items.

My page is getting somewhere... Let me know what you think so far...

In my eyes, everything is working fine.
But of course, a lot of things can be added, changed, needs to be tested...
The layout can/should be updated later on to fit into the LinuxMCE admin pages.


Everything is in one php sheet.
Just the 'sunrise/sunset' is based on a extra cron script. Couldn't figure out how to read it from the database (if so)...

Nice!!!

What do you mean with graphs?
Personally I'm using cacti to have a lot of monitoring about the system (and my network, and...).
Maybe this can integrated in it?



ps i'm missing the sunset/-rise.  :-[
This was the thing that started this. Because i find this very interesting information for the 'timed events'.
