Well hey, if you want features, feel free to make a ticket for the project and we can go over the requirents and set goals
I thought about plexwatch, and I have it installed on my server, but I was trying to focus on making Plex-Board have as few external requirements as possible

But that doesn't mean plexwatch isn't a possibility, it adds a lot of cool information for services like Plex-Board to use

Yeah, I understand not wanting to make too many requirements, and not wanting to load too many things into it either, just was a thought, may be making it an optional component that you could pull some bits of information from, if available, and optionally link to the full interface?

I made a ticket on the project, so I agree, optional is a good idea. I added another ticket for external things like storage space etc. If you have anything to add, please do!

Will do, as I may be a special case, running Sonarr instead of Sick* and CP, transmission & deluge, and SAB

The good news is that you can still add a generic service. Plex-Board will open a socket to the port that your service runs on so at least you will know that the socket is open. As far as adding more specific support for other services that will take some time, but it is something I had planned to do once the initial service support is solidified

No problem, green means good is a start ;) I do plan to use that for somewhat monitoring my UNraid system status page

I think I will also add different ways to check if a service is up... Right now it only opens a TCP socket, so... UDP apps won't work. Which needs to be added I suppose
Though UDP might be tricky because it is stateless
