 Remote Gkrellm over SSH

Linux Orbit contributing editor Dan McCombs gives us the lowdown on running the Gkrellm system monitor remotely over SSH:

"It's nice to have a server, router or firewall tucked away in a closet or in a dark corner of a room and still be able to access it over your local network. But what about monitoring it? Keeping an eye on a local computer is easy with Gkrellm, so why not a remote computer? In this Mini-HOWTO I'll show you how to use X11 forwarding over SSH to run a Gkrellm on your remote computer and have it display on your local computer, securely!"
