Monitoring issues rise again. I have read several reviews of MOM monitoring system from Microsoft. Here is one. My personal opinion is that there is nothing better there then Netsaint and MRTG. One problem I have in plans of solving is Netsaint to mrtg config converter. Or vice versa.
Nothing much today:
- crossover plugin finally started to work (problem was with the NIC, not with the plugin itself).
- MySQL rpms for version 3.23.49 built good, but no changes noticed in handling foreign keys/references. Maybe it’s just me.
- 2.4.18 kernel rpms were built good too. Probably I will upgrade my machine tomorrow. Reasons for upgrade: new scheduler and fixes in USB.
I got my ADSL ping to the gateway reduced from 50-60ms to 20-30. Quake will be much smoother now.
Back from Egypt. It was a fast and interesting trip. Ship was excellent, as were the pyramids and Alexandria’s lighthouse. After the trip I was wondering alot for additional information about world wonders, and I have found some here. The country itself is one huge contrast. They also appear to have problem with beer, but smoking the water-pipe is usual thing.
