Monitor multiple pi's at once

Sat Jun 09, 2018 8:30 pm

How can I monitor multiple Pi's connected to the internet via a single interface? I feel like the answer is so simple but I just can't see it.

It's still a vague request. What activities or functions do you actually want to "see", "view", "keep an eye on", check status, or "monitor"? And what is it you are hoping to be able to spot?

For a vague answer, you could start looking at Cacti, Zabbix, Nagios, or Suricata. Zabbix, Nagios and Cacti are somewhat similar in their goals. Suricata does something else. How close do any of these get to what you have in mind?

Do you mean you want to access multiple RPis across a network (use VNC), or run multiple RPis using one keyboard, mouse, and screen (use a KVM switch)?

For the best service: make your thread title properly descriptive, and put all relevant details in the first post (including links - don't make us search)!
