cricket - A program to manage the collection and display of time-series
This manual page documents briefly the programs associated with
The cricket-compile program compiles the Cricket config tree
(found in /etc/cricket) into the format read by the collector.
It is normally run after editing the files in the config tree.
No options are needed.
The collector program reads a Cricket configuration from
/etc/cricket, compiled by the cricket-compile command, and
collects and stores data according to the information found
there. It is normally run periodically from a cron(8) job.
grapher.cgi is a CGI program to display the data collected by
Cricket in a graphical format. It is usually accessed using a
web browser, e.g. using the URL http://localhost/cgi-
bin/cricket/grapher.cgi. It will allow you to navigate around
all of the targets in the config tree.
This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution
because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it
has documentation in the HTML format; see below.
The programs are documented fully by various HTML documents available
via the help system, or directly in /usr/share/doc/cricket.
dhelp(1), dwww(1), cron(8)
