NAME

       jmond - jMon distributed resource monitor daemon

SYNOPSIS

       jmond [-p port]

DESCRIPTION

       jmond  is the daemon part of the jMon Distributed Resource Monitor. The
       jmon(1) client creates a TCP/IP connection to the jmond daemon  running
       on  each  of  the hosts that are to be monitored. The daemon calculates
       the resource usage from the /proc filesystem.

OPTIONS

       -p port
              This parameter specifies the port that the daemon should  listen
              on.  This  parameter  is  optional,  with the default being port
              7777.

DIAGNOSTICS

       The daemon calculates the resource usage from /proc/stat (CPU info) and
       /proc/meminfo  (memory  and swap info). In order to allow this process,
       support for the virtual /proc filesystem  MUST  be  compiled  into  the
       kernel and it must be mounted.

       For  the sake of convenience, the jmond daemon forks to create a child,
       killing the parent. This allows for easy daemon installation using, for
       example,  the  SysVInit  startup method. In order to further facilitate
       this  method,  the  daemon  writes  its  process   id   to   the   file
       /var/run/jmond.pid.

FILES

       /usr/sbin/jmond
       /var/run/jmond.pid
