Looks nice so far :)
I'm currently using the vpsinfo script together with vnstat and mysqlreport since it's what I've used for years.

You can see it running live on my RPi at http://mrmister.dyndns.org/vpsinfo/vpsinfo.php

Also, something like loadavg would be nice, you can see it running here as well: http://mrmister.dyndns.org/loadavg

We've just released a website, you can find it here: http://raspcontrol.com

There will be a community and blog coming soon where everyone will be able to suggest ideas and contribute :D!

Firstly thank you for this great control centre :)

But I think Network section doesn't show the true values. I've downloaded a lot of stuf yesterday night which is around 10GB, and the values shown on Raspcontrol page are below;

Code: Select all

This was an issue I was thinking about last night, the values are correct but I'm pretty certain they cut off when they hit over 1024MB (needs confirming), but it could also be that you have Restarted your Raspberry Pi, as these values do reset.

No I haven't restarted, it has been running for more than 65 hours. All of them are more than 1024MB and haven't cutted yet.

Did you download these locally? If this this will be on your LocalLoopback and won't show via Ethernet traffic

Could you SSH into your Raspberry Pi and run 'sudo ifconfig'

and copy and paste it into here please :)

Indeed. When I wrote the network script I made it take the values from ifconfig -- If your ifconfig is showing 2.5GB total used then Raspcontrol will too. It may be a bug in the OS/Kernel -- Which OS are you using? Have you used the firmware updater recently?

since updating my raspcontrol the memory usage is showing 93% used with very little free memory!?

Its not doing much other then a couple of files shares that are not even being accessed at this time

Any one else experience this?

i think this is cached ram

please try on your console:

Code: Select all

root@rpi:~# free -m
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:           215        142         73          0         17         92

If you run an ifconfig you'll see the same numbers for the values that include the cache. The "real" values excluding the cache will be much lower and is the number you're expecting to see.

This has been logged as a suggestion on github already

Thanks,

This is what I get when i do free -m
root@raspberrypi:/home/pi# free -m
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 183 171 12 0 15 98
-/+ buffers/cache: 56 126
Swap: 99 1 98


and currently my raspcontrol is showing 171MB used too and 12 MB free

why is my pi using so much memory when its not doing anything??

it's your 98 MB Cached RAM

EDIT: please see my request to show that a percentage is used as cache:

Because i solderded some extra RAM on my device ;-)
No, i set the memory split to 32MB for my GPU. In raspbian you can do this with raspi-config, and there you can set the memory split

It seems many of you don't like Cached RAM being shown as used RAM on the Control Panel.

I will do some updates tonight and push it live tomorrow for updating to exclude these!

Indeed. I removed cached memory as one of my first commits with the intention of (eventually) showing the actual and cached RAM as two separate colors on the graph. It would be neat if this could be done, rather than completely removing cached memory (again :P)

hi can someone help me understand why raspcontrol only displays 25gb SD card when I have a 32GB SD card?

below is my fdisk -l output

root@raspberrypi:/home/pi# fdisk -l

WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/mmcblk0'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.


Disk /dev/mmcblk0: 32.5 GB, 32462864384 bytes
4 heads, 16 sectors/track, 990688 cylinders, total 63404032 sectors

Thanks in advance

EDIT: Sorry my bad. its actually showing 29.7GB! its 25 free lol which is probably right cos you wont get the full 32 GB right?

Is there any chance you could 'Re-Commit' this so to speak, and I'll work on it display both and being able to clear them?
