About multiple pages
This version of RPi-Monitor introduce the notion of pages. Adding a new page can be done in configuration file by setting the parameter named <page id>.
RPi-Monitor will automatically interpret this new id and create the associated page. The new page will be accessible by a drop down menu as shown in the screenshot bellow.

Once RPi-Monitor is configured as you wished, browse http://RPiIpAddress:8888/ to access to the web interface.
Note: The graphs rendering may have strange behavior on Google-Chrome on Windows while it works fine on Linux. Internet Explorer is even not able to display statistics, it is then advised to use Firefox on Windows or better... switch to Linux! ;-).
