          good to be back btw, I can see that non MS systems were not added to the forum topic list after all, or do I need to wipe my glasses?

            Nice to see you back. I was just wondering about where you had gone. The recent forum post concerning that fellow's Fedora box reminded me of you and also made me wish you were back... nice timing for your return.

              oh yeah, I've already posted some suggestions over there

              btw, coming back to my fave OS, my current job is all about mixing Linux and MS systems in one environment

              the way things are looking, I think Daniel will not be able to keep non MS operating systems out of the forum soon

                Re: Back on the p-forums

                I don't think that there's a Petri forums policy to try to keep them out, just that there's not much demand on the forums for Linux. It's a bit of a conundrum though... which comes first, the linux questions to encourage the linux forum or the linux forum to encourage the linux questions. I just try to "keep the ball in the air" when a Linux question comes up since Linux and Windows are increasing being forced to cohabitate. Although I had to abandon my linux network monitoring station project just recently. It's a shame too, Groundwork looked like a good product.

                  It might come, but will it attract enough experts and users for those forums?

                    Re: Back on the p-forums

                    definitely does look like an interesting product
                    is it a wrapper over nagios, plus some additional goodies, or something more of a standalone solution? what do you use to monitor windows services? what language are the scripts written in?

                        Probably.
                        Daniel is currently away for a couple of weeks but he probably might contact you

                          well, he is quite welcome to

                          there are other topics that might be interesting to IT professionals, and which are not represented here atm

                            It was so long ago whenI looked into it and so much has happened since that time that I can't even remember. I looked into Nagios itself but was put off by not having autodiscovery features. Yes, I've heard all the reasons why autodiscovery is supposedly a Bad Thing (or at least not a Good Thing) and I don't agree with it. When I realized that I was trying to figure out how to run nmap on a cronjob to spit out XML and then consume it via a Python/Ruby script back into Nagios I started questioning Nagio's usability. OpenNMS seemed to be my favorite. But I readily admit that I didn't get too terribly deep into the world of network monitoring before I had to abandon the project.

                              well, it does seems like a very interesting project, for me at least, thanks for pointing me to the project website
