Install Innotop from Source

# Install perl database interface
sudo apt-get install libdbi-perl
# Install MySQL and Terminal perl modules
sudo cpan Term::ReadKey DBD::mysql
# Clone innotop
git clone https://github.com/innotop/innotop.git
# Enter directory
cd innotop
# Make
perl Makefile.PL
# Install
sudo make install

innotop --user $ADMIN_USER --password $ADMIN_PASSWORD --host $HOST
