My Synology DiskStation DS409slim is, via the DSM software, SNMP aware. This means I can poll it to get some information using a SNMP capable monitoring system. This is how I configured Munin to grab some metrics from the NAS.
I have bought an Asus EeePad Transformer to see what Android was (compared to all the iOS I had :). One of the thing I found missing (on 3.0, 3.1 and 3.2) was the ability to access CIFS (AKA SMB ou Windows) share. It’s quite a shame since you know Android and no more than a tweaked Linux kernel…
Anyway, after reading a whole pack of doc, I decided to go “rooting” my tablet. I don’t want to install a fully customized ROM (yet). For now, I will keep the stock Asus firmware but will add CIFS capabilities.
I’m keeping an eye on the temperature of my Dell Inspiron Mini 1012. And since it is powered-on again, according to Munin and the cpu0_temp0 / cpu1_temp0 counters, it runs at an average temperature of 59°C. This is quite a bit hot ; especially when I now it is supposed to have a TDP of 5.5 W and that the XPS M1330 is about 45°C.
The Mini is fanless! This is why I bought it and also probably the reason why it is that hot stored in a shoes cupboard with no air flow. So, I’m gonna give him some air turning an unused internal PC Fan into a brand new USB Powered Fan.
