    Hi! I'm trying to install Monitorr in a jails on FreeNAS, and I was doing well, but I realized that Monitorr is "Linux thing": for example, it tries to get info from "/proc/meminfo", which doesn't exist in FreeBSD... So... Is there a way to simulate this? Is there another app like Monitorr...

    iocage - install Debian in jail on FreeBSD?

    I read the iocage docs, they say that you can install Linux aka Debian in the jail on FreeBSD. They link to this article http://devil-detail.blogspot.dk/2013/08/debian-linux-freebsd-jail-zfs.html how ever it seems a bit over the edge to do all that, since we can't install on host FreeNAS, so I...
