Hello.

I have home server with Home Assistant and small VPSes. I want to monitor one of the VPS in Home Assistant. I know that Glances could be the best choice here, but I cannot connect Glances wuth Home Assistant (I can access to web interface hosted directly on VPS, but I cannot connect it to Home Assistant). Is there a light alternative that I can quickly install on VPS server (ubuntu) and connect it with Home Assistant? I don’t need a lot of metrics - only CPU, RAM, Load and maybe net traffic. I am open to standards like MQTT.

    Its not exactly lightweight, but the Netdata integration will get you all of that.

    Securing Netdata itself can be a bit of a chore, and then the integration requires creating sensors of interest in your configuration.yaml file. Have a look, it might be an interesting project if you’re up for a challenge.

    Curious to hear what others are thinking too.

    There’s prometheus node exporter which can collect such data from several hosts. You can hook it up with Grafana for neat dashboards and I’m almost sure it also integrates with Homeassistant.
