cricket - A program to manage the collection and display of time-series data


cricket-compile /usr/share/cricket/collector /usr/lib/cgi-bin/cricket/grapher.cgi


This manual page documents briefly the programs associated with Cricket. cricket-compile The cricket-compile program compiles the Cricket config tree (found in /etc/cricket) into the format read by the collector. It is normally run after edit‐ ing the files in the config tree. No options are needed. collector The collector program reads a Cricket configuration from /etc/cricket, compiled by the cricket-compile command, and collects and stores data according to the informa‐ tion found there. It is normally run periodically from a cron(8) job. grapher.cgi grapher.cgi is a CGI program to display the data collected by Cricket in a graphi‐ cal format. It is usually accessed using a web browser, e.g. using the URL http://localhost/cgi-bin/cricket/grapher.cgi. It will allow you to navigate around all of the targets in the config tree. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in the HTML format; see below.


The programs are documented fully by various HTML documents available via the help system, or directly in /usr/share/doc/cricket. dhelp(1), dwww(1), cron(8)


This manual page was written by Matt Zimmerman <>, for the Debian GNU/Linux system (but may be used by others).
