    Hi, is it any way to make Glances trigger actions without client connection? I’ve tried but couldn’t so I created a task or cron to issue an http request to make actions being triggered. I’ve tested in Windows but I think in Linux it should be the same.

    Any thoughts?

    In “$ sudo systemctl enable connection.service
    $ sudo systemctl start connection.service
    $ sudo systemctl status connection.service”,
    “connection.service” Shouldn’t be glancesweb.service ?

    • Aaron Kili says:


      Remember you can give a custom systemd service unit any name of your choice, here for example we named our unit file: glancesweb.service.

        I meant he meant how you refer to it as ‘connection.service’ inconsistently in part of the tutorial. Or do I misunderstand something?

        • Aaron Kili says:


          Oh i get it, sorry for the misunderstanding. It was an editing problem during publishing, we will correct it as soon as possible.

          Thanks so much and to @Hussein as well.
