Feb 15-19 touched on startup support, Nagios and Bacula monitoring tips for a light blog week.
Always on the lookout for cool projects, Bernd announced our support for Sculio. The young start up we chanced upon at Webmontag, offers project sponsor search and member benefits to students through a partnership program with companies. This year NETWAYS will sponsor Sculio with web hosting.
On the monitoring theme, William offered his quick Nagios tip. A convenient colour coded prompt to take the hassle out of remembering exit codes when testing a Nagios plugin on the command line.
Meanwhile Julian shared two monitoring plugins developed in house for Bacula: check_bacula for individual job monitoring within a specified time frame and count_bacula to view pool utilization. Get them off netways.org under GPL with many other monitoring goodies.
