Monitoring Opensolaris from iPhone / iPad using iStat

Posted by cooper on Jun 28, 2010 in g33k, solaris

Well after I tried myself months ago to get istatd to compile on my Opensolaris box (token) someone smarter and who is not as lazy has worked it all out and got it to compile. One thing he did not do tho was write an init script so that it would start @ boot time. Here you can find it.

Please follow the install instructions on the following blog – I have written scripts, included a sample configuration and written a init script.

Compile Script (Place in parent dir to source code):

#!/bin/bash

DIR=istatd-
VER=0.5.7

ACLOCAL110=aclocal-1.10
export ACLOCAL110
AUTOMAKE110=automake-1.10
export AUTOMAKE110
AUTOCONF26=autoconf
export AUTOCONF26
AUTOHEADER26=autoheader
export AUTOHEADER26
LIBTOOLIZE15=libtoolize
export LIBTOOLIZE15

cd ${DIR}${VER}
pwd
./configure
if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
        echo "ERROR with configure"
fi

make

echo "--> Finished compiling ..."

pfexec useradd istat
pfexec groupadd istat

if [ ! -d /var/cache/istat ]; then
       mkdir /var/cache/istat
fi
pfexec chown istat:istat /var/cache/istat

echo "--> Finished ..."

Sample Config:

#
# /etc/istat.conf: Configuration for iStat server
#

# network_addr           127.0.0.1
network_port           5901
server_code              55551
server_user            istat
server_group           istat
# server_socket          /tmp/istatd.sock
server_pid             /var/run/istat/istatd.pid
cache_dir              /var/cache/istat

# Note: Only support for one network interface, limited by client.
monitor_net              ( bge0 )

# Array of disks to monitor. Specify mount path or device name.
monitor_disk             ( / /home )

# Set to 1 if you want to use mount path as label instead of the device name.
disk_mount_path_label    0

# Try to probe the filesystem for disk label, will override the mount path label.
disk_filesystem_label    1

# Set custom disk label. Will override all other labels.
# disk_rename_label        /dev/sda1  "root"
# disk_rename_label        /home      "home"

# End of file

Init Script:

#!/bin/bash

# Basic support for chkconfig
###
# chkconfig: 35 99 55
# description: start and stop istatd - iphone monitoring tool daemon
###

DIR=/usr/local/bin/
BINARY=istatd
OPTS="-d"

PIDFILE=/var/run/istat/istatd.pid

case "$1" in
	start)
		echo -n "Starting $BINARY ... "
		$DIR/$BINARY $OPTS
		if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
			echo "! Failed !"
		else
			echo "done"
		fi
		;;
	stop)
		echo -n "Stopping $BINARY ... "
		kill $(cat $PIDFILE)
		echo "done"
		;;
	status)
		ps -ef | grep "$BINARY $OPTS"
		;;
	*)
		echo "Usage: $0 {start|status|stop}"
		exit 1
esac

exit 0

ln -s /etc/init.d/istatd /etc/rc3.d/S99istatd
ln -s /etc/init.d/istatd /etc/rc3.d/K10istatd

If someone has written a SMF service I would love to take it from you 🙂
