Sentinella: A Snappy System Sentinel for Linux Lovers
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.
