I'm the maintainer of this app.
You can find the software here : https://sourceforge.net/projects/fah-web-monitor/
It works associated to HFM.net, a ftp server, and a PHP/Apache server.

For bandwidth it's depend on your choices : clients refresh rate, include logs or not.

Setup procedure

Post by ChrisS » Fri Jun 14, 2019 10:33 am

I have downloaded the latest HFM program, and presunably to get it working I have to add a client. It asks me for an address. It won't take my email.

What does it need to get it up and running. Is there a set of instructions anywhere?

I rum FAH on a number of machines, do I need ti install it on each one or can I monitor the whole lot from one machine?

Thanks in advance for any help.

When adding a client to HFM the address it's looking for is the network address of the client you're trying to monitor. Depending on the network setup it can be either the ComputerName or the I.P. address (e.g. 192.168.?.???) of the client you're trying to add.

True. Either will work but it depends on how your LAN is configured. Most local networks use "automatically assign" for IP addresses so when devices are added or removed from the LAN, you don't have to do anything. HFM will reconnect to the same ComputerName even if it uses a different IP address. Pre-assigning IP addresses also works but means you're responsible for each connected device.

It's also possible to connect a client that's not on your LAN, but that it introduces new level of complexity including firewalls, additional security, tunneling, etc. that I prefer to avoid.

Yes, but it can monitor Linux clients.

There's some way to get it to run on Linux (using Mono) but I don't know how to do it ...
