Setting_up_MRTG_and_Smokeping_to_Monitor_Bandwidth_Usage_and_Network_Latency
Notes for smokeping(in progress):

Lighttpd - do not execute CGIs with interpreter
Need perl-rrd
Need perl CPAN URI::Escape
Paths within smokeping scripts (/etc/smokeping/*, smokeping.cgi, perl libs, scripts in bin)
Setup monitoring hosts

Notes for MRTG (in progress):

Deps: gd-dev, libpng-dev, zlib-dev
configure --prefix=/usr/local/mrtg-2
make && make install
/usr/local/mrtg-2/bin/cfgmaker --global 'WorkDir: /path/to/work/dir' --global 'Options[_]: bits,growright' --output /path/to/config/file/mrtg.cfg snmp-community@host
Check that output folder is accessible via web server (ie /var/www/localhost or whatever you have configured)
To test: /usr/local/mrtg-2/bin/mrtg /path/to/config/file/mrtg.cfg
Once working, add to crontab to run as often as desired (ie 5 min)





Another project: Alpine Linux teminal server
Basic idea is that a Windows client can use built-in RDP client and get a secure terminal server for web browsing
Alpine Linux Edge w/ XFCE
XRDP (a version with audio redirection such as http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ryanaxp/posixrdp/devel/files, though that version is giving issues)
Likewise (for Active Directory integration)


Alternative is to try something like LX-Server (https://www.thinstuff.com/licensing/index.php?action=downloads), which ties in RDP protocol, clipboard and audio support (which seems to work under testing in Ubuntu). However, at least 2 issues with that: 1) Product has been discontinued and 2) It's tied to glibc.
