I pulled my dashboard up and was able to pull together a project in about a minute and a half . Super excited by this. I have 4 pi’s hooked up (zero, “B”, 2 B, 3 B) and am putting together a board which will give me status of them all and connection indication.
As a side tangent to the original question… Are there any sensors that you have that would display uptime, or would be a heartbeat type display (visual feedback on whether the connection is still live). My thought is to have a dashboard that has status of all my machines and part of that is when the last time data was gathered from a machine. For example if I have an indicator that shows that machine is running (use a gpio digital input) i would like to have an idea of when the last time we got information that it was still running (“it was running 3 seconds ago” vs. “it was running 2 hours ago”).
anyway, great news and thanks for the quick implementation! I have a feeling that this was in the works before I asked, but it was quick either way!
