I need an idea for a cli app that could use a dashboard. I'm trying out some new tech and need a real project to help me practice. Nothing super complex, that I can get done in a day or two. Whatcha got?


@tomasino I wrote a little munin plugin that shows me a graph of the memory taken by processes running grouped my name filtered by a pattern. I need this because I have various forking web serving apps ending in .pl, so I need to know which one of them is problematic: how many alexschroeder.pl processes and how much RAM they use, same for campaignwiki.pl processes, gopher-server.pl, etc. a bit like top, but not quite. Good enough?

@tomasino now, if you could access the munin data store, that would be even sweeter, of course. But only if you used munin, too. 😀
