psdash is a system information web dashboard for linux using data mainly served by psutil - hence the name.
Dashboard overview of the system displaying data on cpu, disks, network, users, memory, swap and network.
List processes (
toplike) and view detailed process information about each process.
Apart from a detailed process overview this is also available for each process:
- Open files
- Open connections
- Memory maps
- Child processes
- Resource limits
List info on all disks and partitions
List info on all network interfaces and the current throughput.
Tail and search logs
All data is updated automatically, no need to refresh
The GUI is pretty much a modified bootstrap example as I'm no designer at all. If you got a feel for design and like to improve the UI parts of psdash, please create a pull request with your changes. It would be much appreciated as there's much room for improvements.

Apart from Flask's built-in configuration values there's a few psdash specific ones as well:
