conky script used to monitor server status remotely.

A typical Conky look
Image via Wikipedia

I was looking for something to monitor few details on the server. I thought about quite a lot of applications, some open source and some scripts developed in house. But my requirements were quite petty and the scripts and applications were quite heavy. So, I thought why not conky :).


So, with some quick work on conky script, I was able to get what I wanted and here it is for all of you.

This is a bash script, that will create the conky script and then start conky.

#!/bin/bash - 
#          FILE:
#         USAGE:  ./ 
#   DESCRIPTION:  Start conky to display who on all the servers.
