  • sme7admin is a graphical monitor, alert raising, and services supervision tool for your SME 7 Server.
  • It adds a headline + several subpages to the server-manager.

signal-event post-upgrade; signal-event reboot

Sensor detection

This I was unable to fully test myself, as I'm on a virtual machine, please modify/add info. /Per

Detect the sensors on your mainboard, (run as root)


For my mainboard, I just hit enter for all questions, which then uses the defaults which can be seen as CAPs.

Check installed versions

yum info installed smeserver-sme7admin
yum info installed sysstat
yum info installed hddtemp
yum info installed perl-rrdtool
yum info installed rrdtool


yum remove sysstat
yum remove hddtemp
yum remove rrdtool

This will also remove smeserver-sme7admin and perl-rrdtool (for dependencies).

du -s and CPU

du -s option allow you to have detailed information on the used of your hard drive. Unfortunately with the high volume of data in huge recent drives and/or with older slow CPU, you should NOT use this option unless wanting to see constant high CPU utilization, as this command will be launched every 5 minutes.
