I've since submitted my project for Independent Study credit. The project
will be on hold until I get back from Hawaii at the end of the summer and
regain the time and interest to advance things from their current state.
I just rolled the 0.1 release. It includes the base
Python scripts as well as a simple graphical monitors written in Python/Tk
and Java. Screenshots are also available.
There is some basic preliminary documentation available on the
I haven't gotten much accomplished over the last couple of weeks. I had
other projects to get out of the way instead. I sat down and put together a
design diagram, though, and I've cleaned
up most of the code I've already written. The core of the system is
I've finished the framework for the dispatcher. At the moment, it just
cycles through each of the probes at a one-minute interval, but I'll revisit
it later on to add further functionality. It looks like that's going to be
the best approach for all of the modules.
I've started writing some code for the project. So far, I've only written
some pieces of the basic framework, but once they're all in place, I'll
begin working on the reporting facilities. These will include a watchdog
mechanism that will generate alerts and a set of graphical status monitors.
It looks like I'll be receiving Independent Study credit to work on this
project so I figured it would be a good idea to put together a simple web
site to document and present the project's progress.
