       monitorix - a lightweight system monitoring tool


       monitorix  -c  configfile  [-p pidfile] [-d none | graph[,graph] | all] [-v] [-n] [-u] [-s


       This Perl daemon starts the main Monitorix process, which  gathers  statistics  about  the
       system it is running on and stores this information in a set of RRD files.


       -c configfile
              The  default  location  of  the  main  configuration  file  varies depending on the
              operating system:

              Linux:        /etc/monitorix/monitorix.conf
              FreeBSD:      /usr/local/etc/monitorix.conf

              Extra configuration files can be placed  in  /etc/monitorix/conf.d,  they  will  be
              loaded right after the main configuration file (overriding previous options).

       -p pidfile
              Stores the daemon's process ID into the specified file.

       -d none | graph[,graph] | all
              Logs more information about what monitorix is doing internally. The keys reflect if
              the data collected must be displayed on each case. If  all  is  defined,  the  data
              collected of all enabled graphs will be shown. If none is defined no data collected
              will be shown. Finally it is also possible to  define  a  comma-separated  list  of
              graph names from which show their data collected.
              For   a   reference  of  all  graph  names  check  the  option  graph_name  in  the
              monitorix.conf configuration file.

       -v     Displays version information.

       -n     This argument will prevent Monitorix from daemonizing, and hence, forcing it to run
              in foreground. This is specially useful for debugging purposes.

       -u     This option will force Monitorix to run under the regular user who started it. It's
              necessary to make sure that this user will have write permissions to the  directory
              and  files  pointed  by  the  options  base_dir,  base_lib and log_file (either for
              monitorix and for the HTTP built-in server). Also, you must know that  some  graphs
              might  not  work  because  only  the 'root' user is capable to get such statistics.
              Check the log files after starting Monitorix in this mode.

       -s splitpolicy
              This option decides which part of a line in the config file will  be  the  key  and
              which  one  will  be the value. The split policy accepts the values guess (which is
              the default), whitespace (which causes the Monitorix to split  by  whitespace)  and
              equalsign (which causes it to split strictly by equal sign).


       On receipt of a SIGHUP, monitorix will close and reopen its log file (provided that it has
       a filename defined). This is useful in scripts which rotate and age log files.

       Note that the configuration file is not re-read.


       The following set of the files are created on every startup:

               Stores the path of configfile and other information.

               Stores the output of hplog command.
