Top 23 Python Monitoring Projects

  • Sentry

    Developer-first error tracking and performance monitoring

    Project mention: Secure and Resilient Design | | 2024-07-19

    This is really convenient if you are only testing 1 service locally and want to quickly see what's going on. This method is also insecure as without a central authority who automatically receives logs the logs can be tampered with by either the external or potentially even an internal threat actor. But if you're already testing the whole system, or going into production mode, it's much preferable to use centralised error trackers. Our favourite is Sentry.

    With Tautulli you have a better monitoring system than what Plex offers. Streaming history split by user, you can add notifications to a lot of services like Slack, email and so on. You can even create newsletters being sent out to users based on what was added to your server.

    Project mention: Nvtop: Linux Task Monitor for Nvidia, AMD and Intel GPUs | | 2024-03-12

    That's why the authors recommend pipx for installing nvitop. I am not a sysadmin, but I prefer pipx over relying on the (often outdated) distro sources.

  • gpustat

    πŸ“Š A simple command-line utility for querying and monitoring GPU status

    Project mention: How keepHQ got their first 2,000 stars! | | 2023-12-05
