Munin plugin for showing information about Freebox
Latest commit 2467b97 Jul 21, 2014 @vadz Account for having no freeplug stations at all.
This can, and does, happen if the connection between the station and the
coordinator is lost.

Also don't use the station numbers for the most common case of only one
station (but still use them if there is more than one).

Munin Plugin for Freebox


This can only be useful to you if you are:

  1. Client of French ISP Free and have a Freebox v6.
  2. Use Munin for monitoring your server.

If both of these conditions are true, you may find this plugin useful to add the display of Freebox data to your Munin graphs, please read on.


This plugin relies on WebService::Freebox Perl package. The simplest way to install it is to get it from CPAN, e.g.

$ cpan -i WebService::Freebox

As part of its installation, freebox-authorize program is made available. You need to run it once, before using this plugin, in order to obtain the authorization token needed to connect to the Freebox:

$ freebox-authorize org.munin.plugin.freebox "Munin Freebox plugin" 1.0 "Name of your server here"

Keep this token secret as it is sufficient to connect to the Freebox (i.e. no password is required)!


Add the following section to /etc/munin/plugin-conf.d/munin-node file:

env.app_token token-obtained-above

Add a symbolic link from /etc/munin/plugins/freebox_temp to wherever you put the file freebox_ itself, e.g. /usr/local/share/munin/plugins.

As with any Munin plugin, check that it works manually:

$ munin-run --debug freebox_temp

If everything looks correctly, restart munin to start using it:

$ service munin-node restart
