I've already got a female to worry about. Her name is the Enterprise.

To get output to an LCD display 1-wire can be used. This article will describe how to that and include an example to get status from Nagios or op5 Monitor on the display.

I use it to get a quick overview how my DataCenter is doing. When the LCD display is flashing something has either WARNING or CRITICAL status.



Step by step guide

1. Get the Hardware, I bought it from http://shop.temperatur.nu.

LCD controller http://shop.temperatur.nu/1wire-lcd-kontroller-p-74.html

LCD Display http://shop.temperatur.nu/hd44780-20×4-character-lcd-display-bla-bakgrundsbelysning-p-75.html

2. Make sure that your 1-wire bus works

Read my earlier articles

3. Send a text to the LCD Display

echo “Test” > /1-wire/FF.A30300000100/line20.0

If you get text on your LCD everything works

4. Use the script below as a template to get Nagios or op5 Monitor data to your LCD display. It is a modified nagios2lcd perl script.

I have put it in /etc/rc.local so it starts everytime my machine boots.
