Remote monitoring of stations’ status

Conky

Conky dashboard via X-forwarding

In this case, we proceed in the same way as launching any other application with a remote x terminal. Connect to server space.astro.cz with respective parameters -XY.

ssh -XY space.astro.cz

Similarly, connect to a chosen station.

ssh -XY TEST-BPB.tunnel

Run conky from terminal.

conky -o 

The ‘’-o’’ parameter causes that a separate window is generated on the screen.

An example of config file .conkyrc, which is currently on most of our stations:

background		yes
use_xft			yes
xftfont			Courier:size=12
double_buffer		yes
update_interval		2
alignment		top_right
gap_x			10
gap_y			10
no_buffers		yes
minimum_size 		365x500
pad_percents		3

SSH connection for data transfer

In case of a direct connection to more stations, you can use tellconky tool.
