Performance monitoring with Monitorix 3.8.0 on Ubuntu 15.10
This tutorial will show the installation and configuration of Monitorix on Ubuntu 15.10 (Wiley Werewolf). Monitorix is a free, lightweight, open source monitoring tool designed to monitor as many services and system resources as possible on servers and desktops.

Since 3.0 version Monitorix includes its own HTTP server built in, so you aren’t forced to install a third-party web server to use it.
