Answer for Stephen, but something I really want everyone to take note of:
(warning: you’re not going to like this)
I consider DMRmonitor and HBmonitor very poorly written, unstable, and they are, as they stand, completely unsupported. I have a lot of work to do on both of them, changes I will likely make, frequently, would render any kind of install guide useless.
I’m giving this warning because I also don’t want anyone in the community taking time to write a guide, or a scripted installer only to be frustrated with me next week because it’s broken. Please read and understand this – any effort you put in could be almost immediately broken.
I am not, and have no desire to be a web programmer. This is where I draw the line that others need to contribute to the project. I have a few ground rules for anyone looking to do the web application stuff for monitor software:
1) the overhead to the packet-processing modules needs to be absolutely minimal.
2) web sockets. It’s 2018, we really shouldn’t be long-polling, etc.
Anyone who wants to take on the job of making REAL web-based monitoring/stats systems is welcome to do so. Get with me offline about what you need the packet-processing applications to export and how.
