EMT is a monitoring tool that I’ve been developing over the past few years. It’s goal is to serve as a hub for performance metrics on a single server. I’ve tried to talk about what EMT is before but I’m not a very good writer so I thought it would be best to just show people. This tutorial is going to be a quick overview of installing EMT from the rpm and a basic tutorial of it’s usage. Some of this is covered in the manual and some has changed in newer released.
The easiest way to install EMT is to grab the latest rpm from the Google Code downloads page. After installing the rpm you will see a notice about correcting some details in the default view.
