Ward is a simple and minimalistic server monitoring tool. Ward supports adaptive design system. Also, it supports dark theme. It shows only principal information and can be used, if you want to see nice looking dashboard instead looking on bunch of numbers and graphs. Ward works nice on all popular operating systems, because it uses OSHI.

All features tested on: Windows Linux

Create your own jar

• Clone the project
• Import project in your IDE as Maven project
• mvn clean package

Run jar file

1. Create you own jar as described above
2. Execute jar on Windows or Linux with administrative rights
3. Enter localhost:4000 and set up application

Build for Docker

1. Clone the project
2. docker build --tag ward
3. docker run --restart unless-stopped -it -d --name ward  -p 4000:4000 -e WARD_PORT=4000 -e WARD_THEME=dark --privileged ward
4. Go to localhost:4000 in web browser


If you want to change Ward's configuration, you can edit setup.ini. When using Docker, use the environment variables WARD_NAME,WARD_THEME, WARD_PORT to automatically regenerate this file at startup. Using any environment variable listed will enable the defaults below and immediately start Ward without the GUI setup.

Setting Env var Description Default
serverName WARD_NAME Name shown in the interface. Ward
port WARD_PORT Port to listen on. 4000
theme WARD_THEME Either light or dark. light
enableFog WARD_FOG Either true or false. true
backgroundColor WARD_BACKGROUND HexColor for background when fog is disabled default

Environment variables take priority and will regenerate this file with your variables. If no environment variables are set, setup.ini is generated once you navigate to Ward's webpage and complete the initial setup. You can also make this file yourself before starting Ward, and place it in the same directory.

For example:

serverName = my-server
theme = dark
port = 8200
enableFog = true
backgroundColor = #303030
