Retrieve with graph bars Unix filesystem informations through SSH
Retrieve with graph bars Unix filesystem informations through SSH

This PHP script can retrieve a filesystem information through SSH using these steps :

  • launch an SSH connection to a remote server
  • execute through SSH a “df” command
  • display the results using graph bars

This code was initially designed to display graphically the filesystem from Netapp NAS appliances.

index.css file is attached at the end of this page.
