Linux tips: Remote server monitoring with Tmux

skade88 (1750548) writes "Linux users has an article up covering a great tool called Tmux. It allows monitoring of remote Linux systems over an SSH tunnel. Its a good read if you are into that kinda thing.

" There are lots of systems and utilities available to monitor your system. Many of these are web-based, or they run as a client-server system.

Unfortunately, there are several instances where the only allowed connection to the server of interest is over SSH. This might be for several reasons, the least of which being security. In these cases, you will likely still want some way of easily monitoring what is going on with your server. Using tmux, you can create a session which will run all of your monitoring software and
keep it running, regardless of whether you lose your connection or not.

This article will cover the basics of creating such a session, which you should be able to tune and tweak to fit your specific requirements. This way, you can simply log in using any available SSH connection and see, in an instant, all of the information that is of interest to you. Also, since you need to log into the system over SSH, you don’t need to worry about the problems of locking down other software, such as a web server.""
