once upon a time there was a little one-floppy-based tux-router,
so called fli4l. and then, there was a little nice and nifty monitor
for almost all kind of stuff, except, guess what, the little tux-router.
so zeank(see below) wrote a very raw and basic gkrellm-plugin, mostly
based on the gkrellm-demos. as he didnt use gkrellm anymore i took his
codebase and rewrote it until the thing comes out you see now.
gkrellm-imonc depends on gkrellm2.
be sure to visit the sf.net-project-page
the gkrellm-theme you can see on the left is called 'monkeylovers' and is
available from the gkrellm-themepage.
at the moment, gkrellm-imonc is able to do the following:
- display up/down stream
- display cpuload
- display uptime
- dial / hangup default circuit
- launch external command
you can see gkrellm-imonc in action in its unspectacular manner on the left
side. its the topmost plugin, the 'phoenix' shows the name of my router
and below that big chart there is a small cpuloadmeter. and last not least
one can see the spectacular shiny onlineled and the fantastic connectionled,
both full clickable with your mouse. :)
plans for upcoming releases include a lot of stuff the normal gtk-imonc is able to do.
2003 - 05 - 17 gkrellm-imonc-0.2
today i release the second minor release on the long way to
a final or bette almost complete (in my eyes) 1.0. i fixed some issues
and added some functionality, so i guess its ok to call it 0.2.
for more details take a look at the CHANGELOG file in the package or
at cvs. have a nice day,
i am offering just the source-packages (at the moment), because my developing system is an almost
bleeding-edge gentoo and so i am sure that binaries/libs wouldnt work on your system.
so you need for sure a compiler and the gtk/gkrellm2-headers and -libs to get things work.
the usage of the plugin is quite simple. just install the plugin into the plugin-directory of
your gkrellm and enable the plugin through the pluginpanel. then you have to set host/pass/port
of the router. if this is done, the plugin renders the up/down streams to the screen.
leftmouseclick on the plugin will change the "displaymode", just try it out.
who is responsible for everything you see / dont see:
- m. gumz <akira> - main stuff, gui and website
- s. strigler <zeank> - first raw version, maintainer from gtk-imonc and other things
- f. meyer <ukw> - head behind fli4l, who wrote the connectionstuff (imonc)
