Sysmonitor is a system designed to display the current workstation status information clearly and quickly on entry to the lab. Currently this consists of:
  
*A single MCW machine with a network connection
+
*A Sun Ray 2FS
*A stock Debian unstable install
+
*A 24" Sun Monitor
*A 21" Silicon Graphics display
+
*The latest [[System_Status_(script)|System Status Script]].
*The latest [[System_Status_(script)|System Status Script]] hosted by adelie
 
*links2
 
  
== Usage Notes ==
+
== Future ==
Sysmonitor uses links2 through svgalib in order to display graphics. As this requires root, there are two users on this machine, "root", and "stats", and the stats user has sudo permissions to run links2. To keep things simple, the bash_rc of the stats user contains the alias "start-stats", which will start links2 with the proper options to begin viewing the System Status Script. Always use this alias.

Eventually, sysmon should also display server status information.

*Sysmonitor requires a network connection.  
 
*Remember to stow the keyboard after administration of sysmonitor.
