Sentinella: A Snappy System Sentinel for Linux Lovers

Filed under

I've gotten the impression over the years of working with people who use any operating system that most of them do not want to get involved with tinkering. I understand that, especially with the Linux platform. It is very configurable, but much of its have-it-your-way appeal is reached outside the GUI (Graphical User Interface). So if you want to add a basic tinkering tool to your Linux distro and still avoid the CLI (Command Line Interface), meet Sentinella.

Sentinella is a really cool tool. Plus, it is really simple to use and has no setup mandates. In a nutshell, Sentinella lets you monitor your computer's activity and set limits on what happens so you can automatically execute some function in the background. This approach lets you tap into the working status of your computer's processors, memory, network interfaces and more.

Itty bitty ARM module starts at $27

Variscite’s rugged, 50 x 25mm “DART-6UL” COM runs Linux on an i.MX6 UltraLite SoC, offers NAND, eMMC, and wireless, and starts at $27 in volume. In April, Variscite announced the world’s smallest i.MX6 computer-on-module with its 50 x 20mm, Freescale i.MX6-based DART-MX6. At 50 x 25mm, the DART-6UL doesn’t quite match those dimensions, but it offers greater power efficiency, making it well suited for IoT applications and battery-powered devices. Variscite claims it consumes only 5mA in suspend mode. Read more
