Glances is a cross-platform curses-based system monitoring tool written in Python.

see and

First you need to install my repository, see how to do it

then install the module

yum install nethserver-glances --enablerepo=stephdl

For now there is no way to protect the Glances browser by a password, when this option will be available then I will implement it. Therefore Glances is accessible by the browser only from the local network. If it is an issue, then you can disable the service glances as written below, only the glances CLI will stay workable (launch it by 'glances' in a terminal)

After the installation the service which control the web interface is launched, if you want to control it

service glances stop  

can be also {restart,start,stop,status}

or you can use the neth way (enabled/disabled) ←–once disabled you can still to use glances in a terminal

config setprop glances status disabled
signal-event nethserver-glances-update

each time you launch that signal-event, you will update glances and its dependencies

you can see the internal configuration database

# config show glances 

once you have modified a property you need to launch a signal-event : signal-event nethserver-glances-update

  • Private/Public access

by default glances is allowed only on the private side, eg : your local network. if you want to modify it (private|public)

  config setprop glances access public
  signal-event nethserver-glances-update
  • in order to disable the glances web interface (and continue to use the CLI)

if you want to modify it (enabled|disabled)

  config setprop glances status disabled
  signal-event nethserver-glances-update
  • You can change the default TCP port**

if you want to modify it

  config setprop glances TCPPort 55555
  signal-event nethserver-glances-update

The purpose is to see in direct the server activities (you can see raid, disk IO, sensors, bandwithd, memory, docker, ….)

Well a lot of good stuffs.

In order to use it go to Dashboard→Applications→Glances. It is a web service restricted on the private network. But if you don't like to use the web interface, then you can disable it and use only the CLI in your terminal (do simply 'glances')

Since the web interface doesn't get a password protection implemented, it is deactivated by default now in NS7, either use glance in your terminal, or if you want to activate the web interface do :

config setprop glances status enabled
signal-event nethserver-glances-update
