Proactive Monitoring software for DietPi

Post by Jack Sabbath »

Hello everybody,

I'm setting up my new RasPi and decided to not use OpenMediaVault this time, since it's quite bloated and since DietPi offers alternatives for most of the functionality already.

Yet what I am really missing is some kind of monitoring software that informs me via email if something is wrong. Things like:
- A Cron job fails
- A file system is nearly full
- S.M.A.R.T. values of a drive are getting bad
- RasPi feeling sad or hungry
- other catastrophes

Can you recommend an appropriate software that does that? It should also:
- work well with DietPi
- be reasonably easy to setup
- consume only a reasonable amount of resources -> not super bloated
- be free of charge (ideally Open Source)

Thank you!

Hi,

many thanks for your message. Not sure if there is a tool who covers all your needs but you could have a look to the system managemanet tools that are offered by dietpi-software catalogue.
Or you have a look to Debian Wiki https://wiki.debian.org/SystemMonitoring
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

Thank you for these resources, and of course for this awesome disto!

I will take a look at them in the next days and post an update which one I'd suggest.
