A Django application for remotely monitoring servers using SSH.

In background (crontabed jobs) Skwissh uses Python Fabric to execute SSH commands, aka. "sensors", get the output and store timestamped values. Measures are taken every minute.

On the other side, Skwissh is able to display nice charts (linechart, piechart or simple text) with aggregated measures.

Default sensors available (tested on Ubuntu 12.04) :

  • Memory
  • CPU
  • WaitIO
  • Load Averages
  • Disk usage
  • Top

But you can easily add your own ones !!

Follow @skwissh on Twitter to see latest updates.


Skwissh can be installed from Pypi:

pip install django-skwissh

Configure your Django project in a normal way (database, etc...).

Add skwissh and kronos to your Django INSTALLED_APPS:


Add Skwissh to your

# Skwissh
url(r'^skwissh/', include('skwissh.urls')),

Synchronize your database (this command will load defaut sensors through fixtures):

./ syncdb

Install Skwissh tasks (will write to your user crontab, thanks to 'django-kronos'):

./ installtasks

You can check that 4 crontab job have been configured:

crontab -l

If you want to activate i18n (French & English currently supported), follow the next steps:

In your project, add the Django LocaleMiddleware and set the LANGUAGES variable:


   ('fr', 'Français'),
   ('en', 'English'),

You're ready to go ! Connect to the application and start configure your servers and sensors !
