wmon - web server monitor

wmon or web monitor for Linux servers is tool I made about 3 years ago. The idea was to get a better picture of web server load. That's how it looked back in 2008.

A few lines of PHP and bash commands and chart made with GD library. Turned out to be quite useful. I gave it also to some friends and the totally forgot about it. Then one day a friend mention me, what about wmon, its very cool tool, are you planing any updates. I've been quite happy to hear it and that gave me some momentum to actually push it further.

I've found a nice charting tool dygraphs, that draws canvas charts and also have zooming in some other cool features. Dygraph relay gave mi some good options to add additional features, like top processes and services status changes for any pointed time on chart. I've also added easy way to include external wmon in to one report. Thats how you can monitor all servers from one location.

Turned out pretty good and probably useful for others, so i decide it to sell it on Hopefully it will buy me some beer :). If you are interested you can get it and try it here. Thanks!

portfolio re-design

I finally managed to put together new re-design of my online portfolio On the site is virtually nothing new except for the new style, I just made a few substantive changes and prepared the base for the English version (hope soon). This does not mean that I'm doing nothing, but I have many things in work or unfinished, so they can not be published yet. Thanks to Valter C. for his time. I owe you now :P

Going freelance

If you don't already know I'm going freelance with the next month. I was thinking about this for a long time and now finally decided to start my own business and try it on my own. I made a checklist of things I'll have to do before the startup and one of top priorities was setup a portfolio.

Here it is, it's not much, just some screen shots and short description but i think enough to give you the feeling what i already dealt with and what are my experiences. It's temporary, just until i make my own business web site.

FireSpider extension for Firebug

FireSpider is a an extension for Firebug that can help you find broken or misleading urls and optimize your web page for search engines.

Extension enables you start and the stop the spider. After pressing the start button it fetch the current url and parses the content for new urls. Every unique url is fetch only once. It follows only the current domain urls and detects its content type. Not html content types are reported. Besides fetching, firebug panel gives you information about page title, page where url was got from, its link name and loading time. Reported are also not found urls and ones went in time out after 10 seconds. Requests are send one after another, so some sites may find it to aggressive or may detect you as a dangerous script. Be careful.


This is the first version (hope not the last) and first extension i ever made. Some things may not be very well done, but the basic functionalities are working, i think. Try it and tell me what you think. Hope you find it useful.

firefox only includes styles form .css files

Tested with firefox 3.0.3, i don't know about previous versions. For instance, try to rename style.css to style.txt and include it into html header. Firefox show no style applied, while Internet Explorer 7 had no problems including .txt styles. I don't know why is that so, is this a bug or intended behaviour. I think that styles should be included regardless file extension, otherwise header link tag type=text/css have no meaning.
