ZetaWatch

Postby cbreak » Mon Sep 19, 2016 9:15 am

This is a very special-purpose GUI for ZFS: https://github.com/cbreak-black/ZetaWatch

It monitors all imported pools, querying status in regular intervals, and reporting degradation and other issues via OS X Notifications. It also prevents system idle sleep while a scrub is active (but not user initiated sleep or shutdown).

The program is very much beta, but it works for me so far.

Thanks for posting this. Just wondering how I can run the program. Does it need to be compiled first?
I didn't a link to a executable file

Thanks

You can download the current build on https://the-color-black.net/zetawatch/ZetaWatch.app.zip

I have to think of some proper way to host builds :)

I get "unable to read configuration" after the first vdev device in the pool :)

You must have a pool configuration I haven't tried :)

The documentation of the whole libzfs api is very lacking, so I went by what I was able to test. I think I haven't tested pools with cache / log devices. Single disk pools or raidz pools should work though...

Edit: Seems fresh pools don't have any scan statistic entry, so not finding one is normal. I've changed ZetaWatch to ignore it and not classify it as an error.

Maybe you could just make a release on GitHub? That way you can also host the binaries.

Interesting, didn't know that was possible. Here it is:

ZetaWatch has been improved a lot in the recent months

Currently supported features are:

  • Show pool and vdev status including scrub progress
  • Show pool / filesystem properties
  • Show filesystem and vdev stats
  • Import pools and Export pools
  • Mount / unmount datasets
  • Load encryption keys for encrypted datasets
  • Scrub pools
  • Report errors in notification center

I've only tested it with 10.13.6, and I think others have used it on 10.14. If you want 10.11 support, it might be possible to compile ZetaWatch for that platform, but it'd be untested.

Edit: And I've added a bunch new features since the last post :)

https://github.com/cbreak-black/ZetaWatch

- Auto updates
- Auto importing pools
- Auto unlocking encrypted datasets (possibly storing the keys in keychain)
- Better visualization
- And more!
