Currently, the only way to obtain resmon is via git. Check it out into the installation directory (/opt/resmon is a good choice):
git clone git://labs.omniti.com/resmon.git /opt/resmon
You will need to create a configuration file in order for resmon to work. Start by copying the resmon.conf.sample file to /opt/resmon/resmon.conf and editing it. See the Configuration Section for help configuring resmon.
Resmon can be started simply by running the resmon command. By default, it will use the config file at /opt/resmon/resmon.conf and will detach and become a daemon. To prevent resmon from daemonizing, add the -d option.
Once you have things up and running, you will probably want to install resmon as a service. A Redhat init script and Solaris SMF manifest file are provided to help you with this. You can use these as follows:
cp /opt/resmon/resources/resmon_redhat_rc /etc/init.d/resmon chkconfig resmon on /etc/init.d/resmon start
cp /opt/resmon/resources/resmon_debian_rc /etc/init.d/resmon update-rc.d resmon defaults /etc/init.d/resmon start
svccfg import /opt/resmon/resources/resmon-manifest.xml svcadm enable resmon
cp /opt/resmon/resources/resmon_freebsd_rc /usr/local/etc/rc.d/resmon /usr/local/etc/rc.d/resmon start
And add the following to /etc/rc.conf:
If you have a custom config file location, you can also add:
Moving from subversion to git
- The easiest way is to move the original svn checkout aside, then make a new git checkout in its place:
mv /opt/resmon /opt/resmon.oldsvn git clone git://labs.omniti.com/resmon.git /opt/resmon
- Any local changes can be copied in place - use svn st and svn diff to find any changes.
