I have a remote IoT device that uses Mender with a touchscreen. I want to check the status of the Mender client periodically to show an indicator on my touchscreen for debugging assistance.
Is there a CLI command I can use to check the client’s status and see if it is connected to the Mender server?
The Mender client (the
mender binary) is not constantly connected to the server, that would be
mender-connect, which provides the Remote Terminal feature. Unfortunately there is no command to check its status, that information is only available on the server. You could check
netstat -t and see if anyone is connected to
hosted.mender.io, but this is obviously not robust.
