System Watchdog is a program that is designed to monitor a collection of Linux systems. It is configured to collect data on each monitored system at 5-minute intervals and build historical graphs using RRDTool. By default, it will gather statistics on CPU, memory, disk, and network usage. It also will attempt to monitor temperature and power settings. System Watchdog uses the paramiko module to ssh to all monitored systems. To access monitored systems, threads are implemented to access each remote host. After all threads have completed, watchdog will build a summary landing page to display the current status of each host, with links to a hardware inventory and resource graphs of each host.
