ArchLinux Package for sinfo

Eric Hansen Eric Hansen Profile: Eric Hansen

In this month’s issue of Linux Journal, they wrote about a CLI network monitoring tool called sinfo. At first it looked like a great program to explore the network a little bit, as you can use it to also monitor remote computers as well (LAN and such). As a side note, since I had a little bit of trouble figuring out how exactly to make that work, I’ll write up a short tutorial on that soon. But, back on topic, I soon realized that sinfo is not in either AUR or any “official” repos for Arch Linux, and so I took it upon myself to do so. The end result can be found here: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=53144.

If you use Arch Linux (the official site has a repo for Debian systems already), and you want to try out an, in all actuality very quite useful tool, give it a try.
