Description Greg Martyn 2006-06-02 01:01:40 EDT
SUSE lets you start ksysguardd as a init.d process. It would be nice if Fedora
supported that too.

KSysGuardd is a daemon that lets ksysguard (the gui) monitor remote computers.

A patch is available:

Comment 1 Laurent Rineau 2008-03-11 18:34:57 EDT
ksysguard can monitor remote computer through ssh, launching ksysguardd on the 
remote machine if needed. What are the advantages to have ksysguardd launched 
by init? Is not there any security issue?!
Comment 2 Greg Martyn 2008-03-11 19:32:06 EDT
The sensitive parts of ksysguardd are disabled when run as a daemon (the -d
switch), but you're right; I can't think of any advantage to using the daemon
over ssh=>ksysguardd
