Daniel B. from Firewall Services


  • sme8admin is a graphical monitor, alert raising, and services supervision tool for your SME 8 Server.
  • It adds a headline + several subpages to the server-manager.


yum install smeserver-sme8admin --enablerepo=smecontribs


service mysql.init restart
service sme8admind start


signal-event post-upgrade; signal-event reboot

Sensor detection

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. You will need to follow the instructions in order to add the detected sensors in rc.local to have them loaded on reboot.

Check installed versions

yum info installed smeserver-sme8admin
yum info installed sysstat
yum info installed hddtemp
yum info installed perl-rrdtool
yum info installed rrdtool


yum remove smeserver-sme8admin

Additional information

If you connect to the SMEserver console by Putty ssh-client (or similar) you can copy and paste the commands (very convenient).

Good luck /Per

Known Problems

du -s and CPU

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

disabling IMAP

Disabling IMAP will fails webmail authentication. As a result, disabling IMAP will only work until new reboot or some event to be trigger. This will also make webmail fails until next reboot.

After reboot disabled IMAP will be set automatically to enabled and access to localhost.
