What is ServerBee?

ServerBee is a cross-platform efficiency tool that integrates monitoring, management, and terminal support for Linux, Windows, macOS, and even NAS systems.

Main Features

  • Powerful functions: CPU cores, system load, memory usage, disk read/write, network card IO, process management, SSH terminal.
  • Cross-platform: Supports Windows, Linux, macOS, Nas, and Linux-derived systems.
  • High performance: Uses the high-performance framework Actix-Web for providing services, powered by Rust.
  • Open source: The server program is fully open source, transparent, public, and customizable.

How it works

ServerBee connects various nodes to the control side by using agents. Each node needs to install the server-side program, which periodically uploads the node's information to the control side for monitoring and management.

Communication between the control side and the nodes is done through Websocket.

To ensure data security, ServerBee supports Token authentication, allowing users to set a global Token in the APP or set a Token for a specific node individually.

The Token for each node will be set when it first connects to the APP.
