About istatd

istatd is a daemon serving statistics to your iStat iPhone application from Linux, Solaris & FreeBSD. istatd collects data such as CPU, memory, network and disk usage and keeps the history. Once connecting from the iPhone and entering the lock code this data will be sent to the iPhone and shown in fancy graphs.

What is iStat for iPhone?

iStat is a iPhone application developed by Bjango (http://www.bjango.com/). With iStat you can remotely monitor CPU, memory, disks, uptime and load averages from any Mac, Linux or Solaris computer from your iPhone. You can download iStat in iTunes App Store.

   # wget http://github.com/downloads/tiwilliam/istatd/istatd-x.x.x.tar.gz

2) Extract tar ball

   # tar -xvf istatd-x.x.x.tar.gz

4) Build istatd

   # cd istatd-x.x.x

   Here you can configure where you want your binary and config to end up (default /usr/local).
   # ./configure
   or
   # ./configure --prefix=/ --sysconfdir=/etc

   # make
   # make install

5) Add user and configure directories

   # useradd istat
   # mkdir -p /var/{run,cache}/istat
   # chown istat.istat /var/{run,cache}/istat

6) Configure your config to match your needs and system

   # vim /etc/istat.conf

   Note: Don't forget to change your server_code.
