Plexpy (pronounced Plex Pie) is a monitoring system written in python and designed specifically for Plex which displays nice graphs and statistics about your Plex Media Server which you may require for the following reasons;
- Monitor who is watching your Plex Library and when
- To understand what types of devices are being used
- Track down which players are causing transcoding to occur
- To know what is most popular in your library
- To know what media is synced to where and to whom

The network menu configuration options easily configure the Plex Media Server as a access point server (Wireless AP ) or join your raspberry pi to a existing Wi-Fi network (Wireless Client). Ease of setup for Wireless AP or Wireless Client is achieved by simply selecting a option from the interactive network menu. Wireless AP allows client devices and applications to connect directly to the Raspberry Pi to consume streaming content. Wireless Client allows the Raspberry Pi to connect to an existing wireless network where any clients on the existing wireless network can access the the Raspberry Pi to consume streaming content. Wi-Fi configurations can work together or simultaneously with the LAN Ethernet adapter regardless of the LAN adapter configuration, by default the LAN interface is set to acquire a IPv4 address unless the Install DNS/DHCP Server or Set static LAN IP option is used. IP Forwarding and Masquerading can be used to configure your Raspberry Pi PMS as a internet enabled Wi-Fi hotspot. DNS and DHCP are automatically deployed in Wireless AP option, however if you need your Raspberry Pi to also be a standalone Ethernet connected server then Install DNS/DHCP Server option.
