You can generate dynamic graphs (SVG format) in a target folder. The generation starts every time the ‘g’ key is pressed in the CLI interface.
[graph] # Configuration for the --export graph option # Set the path where the graph (.svg files) will be created # Can be overwrite by the --graph-path command line option path=/tmp # It is possible to generate the graphs automatically by setting the # generate_every to a non zero value corresponding to the seconds between # two generation. Set it to 0 to disable graph auto generation. generate_every=60 # See followings configuration keys definitions in the Pygal lib documentation # http://pygal.org/en/stable/documentation/index.html width=800 height=600 style=DarkStyle
and run Glances with:
$ glances --export graph --export-graph-path /tmp
