    I have integrated a patch from a user to allow HOSTMIB Processes (SWRun) Applications to be monitored from the NMS. Now you can see when your processes go down with only SNMP, no TCP (trying to connect) involved. We could also graph the number of instances of the process, do you think that's useful? It could be used for: if there are less than 10 httpd processes running, alert me, or do something.
    The MIB Parser is starting to work, I think I've parsed all the relevant MIB Data, now I've to make the application which will use the data to create JFFNMS Interface Types (graphs, pollers, discovery, etc).
    I'm also thinking on adding a Host Tools framework, to allow the use of the discovery or more data to do certain things like show the ARP table, Show the TCP Connection Table (and allow to close a session), Show the Process Table (and allow the killing of a process), but I'm not sure how to implement it, do I let the coder control the look and feel and data, or just allow him to create callbacks?
Work (Contracting)
    I've got a new customer, it came from my employer :), because they hosted a machine here, and they got Hacked and want me to help them fix it, or reinstall the Linux Box. They run a Web-to-SMS gateway and the hacker made them send thousands SMS messages :). I've an appointment with them tomorrow (sunday) at miday.
    It was a busy week, and I'm tired. I'm also planning on adding a Wishlist link to the JFFNMS page. Because nobody donated anything to my PayPal Link :( .
