       sinfo-client - a monitoring tool for networked computers (client)


       sinfo-client  [-q]  [-V] [-W] [-H] [-L] [-h host[:port] ] [-u user ] [-d delay ] [-s] [-o]
       [-i process ] [-n] [-D] [-t count ] [-i processname ] [-c scale ]


       sinfo-client displays some information of the nodes in your local network.  For each  node
       the system load, the memory utilization and the `TOP-5' user processes will be displayed.

       sinfo-client  uses the sinfod(8) to gather these informations.  For further details of the
       internal mechanisms refer to the sinfod(8) manual.


              be quiet - don't display startup informations.

              Print the version number and exit.

              Web-mode: List all hosts and their informations in html-format and exit.   Look  at
     for a sample cgi-script.

              List all host names of nodes running a sinfod(8) and exit.

              List all IPs of nodes running a sinfod(8) and exit.

              List all host names and IP addresses of nodes running a sinfod(8) and exit.

              List all known host names with the current system load and exit.

       -h/--host <host[:port]>
              Fetch  information  from the sinfod(8) running on `host' instead of localhost.  You
              may also specify the port number of the sinfod(8) your  are  connecting  to.   This
              option  may  be useful in cases where ssh(1) or similar programs are used to tunnel
              the connection from  sinfo-client(1)  to  sinfod(8)  through  a  firewall.   It  is
              possible  to  use  multiple -h option to connect to more than one sinfod to monitor
              more than one network with one sinfo-client process.  If your want to set different
              delays  for  the  connections  -d has to be specified prior to the corresponding -h

              $ sinfo-client -h localhost:60001
              (the default values)

              $ sinfo-client -h
              (... if you want to set an IP-address directly)

              $ sinfo-client -h
              (port 60001 will be used as default on

              $ ssh -q -C -L
              (establish the tunnel)
              $ sinfo-client -h localhost:60002
              (connect through the tunnel)

              $ sinfo-client -h localhost -h
              (connect two demons to join the sinfo broadcasts of two networks)

       --udp / --tcp
              Use UDP(default) or TCP to connect to sinfod.

       -u/--user <user>
              Highlight all processes of `user' instead of using environment variable $LOGNAME.

       -d/--delay <delay>
              Set the delay (in seconds) between two updates.  Default is one second.

       --filtermarker <marker>
              Request only informations matching <marker>.

              Include system information (resolved by a uname -a call) in the list.

              Only display your own processes or the processes owned  by  user  '-u  user'  (this
              overrides the '-t count' setting).

       -i/--ignore <process>
              Don't display <process> ; --ignore may be set multiple times.

              Display network load.

              Display disk load (buffer allocation rate) of locally connected disks.

       -t/--top <count>
              Restrict the number of processes displayed to `count'.

       -c/--scale <scale>
              Set the scaling of the CPU load bars to "log", "lin" or "full".


       q      Quit sinfo-client.

       PageUp, PageDown
              Scroll the screen by one page.

       UpArrow, u; DownArrow, d
              Scroll the screen by one line.

       Home   Jump to the top line.

       s      Toggle display of system informations.

       o      Toggle display of your own processes.

       n      Toggle display of network informations.

       D      Toggle display of disk load.

       t      Toggle display of the TOP n processes.

       c      Toggle the scaling of the CPU load bars form "log", "lin" to full.


       The exit codes used by sinfo-client are:

       0      everything OK

       1      Connection to sinfod failed.


              Highlight $HOSTNAME in sinfo-client's output.

              Used  to  determine the name of the user which processes shall be highlighted.  May
              be overridden by the -u option.

       TERM   The name of your terminal. Used to select escape sequences out of  the  terminfo(5)
