How to use it?
The file /etc/rpimonitor/template/services.conf is showing an example of Label usage.
In this example, we monitor if the service ssh is listening on port 22 and display a label _OK_ if yes or a lable _KO_ if not.
We do the same for RPi-Monitor on port 8888 and for nginix on port 80 and 443.
