I'm getting started with BYOND game hosting on Linux, and I'm trying to put together a suite of tools for myself and my other server administrators to use to be able to effectively monitor and, well, help run the server.
In particular, I am looking for a way to get server information directly from my server itself. If I have DreamDaemon running my chosen .dmb file on, say, port 12345, I'm looking for a protocol spec that I can use to connect to the server on that port to get information like number of players connected, and the like.
I would be baffled to hear there is not a way do do this, but searches on these fora leave me coming up dry. A little help?
