Keep running in Linux background to get alerts on phones Download

  • Get alerts when Linux CPU/MEM usage continues high for a period of time - You can setup consecutive 1 or 2, and usage yy% as threshold limit. Get alerts only when CPU / Memory usage has consecutive xx times higher than yy%
  • No alerts for short high Spikes. No continue sending alerts when utilization remains high - Alert you only when the first time reach the defined consecutive times and alert you again when usage back to normal. Let you know when is abnormal and when is back to normal
  • SMS alert message will tell you the CPU/MEM usage and TOP1 data including PID, USER, %CPU, %MEM, TIME, COMMAND. See below sample
  • Has option to KILL TOP1 process when consecutive high than a KILLCOUNT number and alert text will tell you which PID & COMMAND has been killed. You can setup a SMALL threshold number and a BIG killcount number to get alert immediately and kill TOP1 process if CPU/MEM usage consecutive high for a log period of time 
  • In addition to receive SMS on your phones, it supports SSL for Gmail/ Yahoo/ Hotmail SMTP server or your own server to receive mail alerts at the same time. Check Gmail/ Yahoo/ Hotmail setup
  • Easy to use and keep it running in background to monitor - Unzip and Setup two files.  1) cpualert_setup.txt for threshold and 2) cpualert_email.txt for SMTP server. Run cpualert. You can run it in background with silent mode by running cpualert -s & if everything has been tested OK
  • Write to log file with TOP1 program name, PID and timestamp whenever CPU/MEM higher than threshold. 
  • IamAlive mail notification - Mail you today's log at midnight everyday to let you check the daily log from mail directly and you also can know program is up and running

Sample for SMS alert text SuSe CPU now 100% higher than 75% for 10 times (TOP1- PID: 31118 USER: root %CPU: 99.6 %MEM: 0.1 TIME: 5:30.60 COMMAND: loopcpu

  • TOP1 data is the TOP command and sort %CPU or %MEM
  • Alert sending when first time reach the threshold and consecutive # 

  • No alerts sending when keep higher than threshold

  • Alert sending when back to normal

  • Alert sending when reach the threshold and consecutive # after back to normal
