Projects / MOTDstat


MOTDstat (Message Of The Day - System Status) will dynamically generate the /etc/motd file with current information about system status and usage. Using crontab, the script will periodically display the status of system resources and services. The original message of the day will be stored in the /etc/motd.orig file. Configuring an email address, you'll receive notifications about the following issues with configurable warning and critical limits: high CPU load, exceeding disk space, intensive usage of swap space, a specific process or network service not running, NTP not synchronized, and too many messages in the mail queue.
