Aquaero plugins for Munin

Aquaero My home servers are water cooled, I use the Aquaero device for monitoring the status of the cooling system. (fan speed, temperature and water flow).

The Aquaero is a monitoring system made by Aquacomputer, an German watercooling hardware manufacturer.

This monitoring system is working on Debian GNU/Linux and the source code of the monitoring program is available under the terms of the LGPL License.

You can find the command ligne monitoring system here : aquaero downloads.

I’ve wrote an C++ plugin for Munin, in order to get the watercooling status monitored.

Fan speed Water flow Temperature


Fallow thoses instructions in order to build and setup the plugin :

$ su
# cd /usr/src
# wget
# tar xzf aeinfo-2.1-src.tar.gz
# cd aeinfo-2.1-src/
# wget
# g++ -Wno-deprecated munin.cpp -lusb -o munin
# mv munin /usr/share/munin/plugins/aquaero
# cd /etc/munin/plugins
# ln -s /usr/share/munin/plugins/aquaero aquaero_fan
# ln -s /usr/share/munin/plugins/aquaero aquaero_temp
# ln -s /usr/share/munin/plugins/aquaero aquaero_flow
# echo < > /etc/munin/plugin-conf.d/munin-node
user root
# /etc/init.d/munin-node restart

Enjoy and feel free to report bugs.
