Install Glances to Monitor Open Media Vault Server

Glances is a cross-platform system monitoring tool written in Python. It can be installed on pretty much any Linux system but this is a great tool for monitoring NAS servers like Open Media Vault. You can see vital information like CPU temps, disk space, RAM and CPU usage and much more.

You can see most of this from the OMV dashboard but I wanted something that could read temperature sensors for the CPU and this is perfect. Plus, looking at the bright white dashboard on OMV can be strenuous on the eyes as they do not have a dark mode.

apt install python3
apt install python3-pip
