    So, I've been wanting a centralized location to place on a server to monitor EVERYTHING.
    I used NodeQuery to gather my server data and they have an API in place.

    I've found this free dashboard software called "Freeboard". So far it's nice to work with, but you have to save your dashboard to your PC, then load it up again each time to go to it. Not very user friendly.. so I'm looking at a work around for that.

    I want to figure out a way to gather information from XenForo (like AdminCP error messages,etc) and keep everything in one central dashboard. I'm looking at a few of the API Add-ons, just haven't got that far yet.

    Thoughts/Comments? Am I just crazy?

    Yea, maybe a few blocks showing totals posts a day for each site ( I run 4 right now). Maybe new member count for the day? Just fun, useful information.

    My largest site is on a Linode box. I have KnownHost VPS for my smaller ones but I can't get the nodequery data script to install (Different thread coming up) so I don't have a widget made for that one yet.

    I'll most likely develop an app for IPS using nodequery API soon. Maybe also look at other APIs but nodequery is first because I want it myself too :)

    My biggest want from XenForo data is this:
    - Server Error Count (as seen in the AdminCP notices)
    - Users awaiting moderation (Only admins can see that)
    - New Registrations, Posts, Threads

    A nice dashboard showing server data, software data, and everything else would be very nice.
