SYNOPSIS

monitorix -c configfile [-p pidfile] [-d none | graph[,graph] | all] [-v] [-n]

DESCRIPTION

This Perl daemon starts the main Monitorix process, which gathers statistics about the system it is running on and stores this information in a set of RRD files.

OPTIONS

-c configfile
  The default location of the configuration file varies depending on the operating system:

Linux: /etc/monitorix.conf
FreeBSD: /usr/local/etc/monitorix.conf

-p pidfile
  Stores the daemon’s process ID into the specified file.
-d none | graph[,graph] | all
  Logs more information about what monitorix is doing internally. The keys reflect if the data collected must be displayed on each case. If all is defined, the data collected of all enabled graphs will be shown. If none is defined no data collected will be shown. Finally it is also possible to define a comma-separated list of graph names from which show their data collected.
For a reference of all graph names check the option graph_name in the monitorix.conf configuration file.
-v Displays version information.
-n This argument will prevent Monitorix from daemonizing and force it to run in the foreground.

SIGNALS

On receipt of a SIGHUP, monitorix will close and reopen its log file. This is useful in scripts which rotate and age log files.

Note that the configuration file is not re-read.

FILES

The following set of the files are created on every startup:
<base_dir>/cgi/monitorix.conf.path
  Stores the path of configfile.
<base_dir>/cgi/monitorix.hplog
  Stores the output of hplog command.
<base_dir>/index.html
  HTML main page.
