Not long ago I posted about configuring ‘Monitorr‘.
As an internal tool, it was surprisingly useful. However, I quickly decided it could be much more useful as a landing page for people who I’ve given access to my media.
It handles linking and monitoring of multiple services – some only I have access to, some others do.
To make all the services work nicely, I also set up a reverse proxy system using the BaseURL settings in the various systems I use (Radarr, Sonarr, Lidarr etc), and proxy rules in IIS. See more on that here.
Thanks to the proxy setup, no more ‘unresponsive’ messages – since it only has to check that it’s listening, authentication is separate. Yay!
I run a lot of different pieces of software on my server. Sonarr, Radarr, Lidarr… just to name a few.
All of these different systems listen on different ports, and I got tired of having so many ports forwarded and so many different ports to remember.
I recently set up a little web app called Monitorr on my server. It sits in my webserver directories, and gives me a quick glance at what services are online and offline (of the ones I’ve told it to monitor).
It’s an Open-Source project, that I came across on Github. Setup was ridiculously easy.
So I made a start and stripped down my donor machine the other night (no photos – just a stock rolling chassis).
Now – transplanting bits to the new chassis plate, and putting things together.
Motor is mounted, and diffs/driveline. Top plate needs some modification to fit the new motor (Dremel to the rescue!). I need some other bearings to do the Traxxas spur mod, so that’s going to be delayed – gives me a next stage of updates, so that’s cool.
Next up is steering assembly, then on to the electronics (cutting, soldering, fitting etc – I want this to be clean inside). Pictures below.
The first batch of parts for my speed runner arrived the other day.
All those lovely Exotek parts. No, I didn’t get the Exotek carbon shock towers. At present, I feel that 6 grams of weight saved is not enough to worry about. I may put heavier arms on it yet just to keep weight on for traction.
