Just order it and be damned, they'll be awestruck by your balls and not say anything.

Honest.


Here is an email that I sent to my boss 4 years ago;

Quote:
Now that we have a 'waterit' e-mail account, it would make sense that we have some sort of method of monitoring this if it is to be useful in catching problems as they develop.

It is relatively simple to connect to the Exchange Server and monitor the various folders we have set up and then display the results of this in a webpage.

This web-page would poll at whatever interval we require and display whatever we want, it could flash if e-mails are received that could possibly indicate an immediate problem, it could display totals so we can see what is going on in various systems.

It would also be feasible to write scripts to monitor activity on the servers so we could see any problems developing with disc space, DB activity, backups or whatever.

If we were to have this setup and working then obviously we need a screen on it, were it to be a normal monitor then obviously that would require someone to walk past and look at it.

What we ideally need is a big wall-mounted screen that is clearly visible from everyone's desk (next to the clock is an area that immediately presents itself.

This would mean less time spent checking things to see how they are progressing, and immediate notification to the room, and thereby to whoever is present and currently holding responsibility to do something.

It would also mean that we could make it flash red, and sound a siren.


This, I firmly believe, would be a good idea.


The response I received was;

Quote:
Chris,

Find out the cost (ballpark) and I will do a business case.

Ade.


And we ended up with a big telly in our office that had freeview and could quickly be switched to the monitoring screen should the need arise. We never did get around to creating anywhere near as exciting a monitoring suite as described.

But at least we had the equipment to do so at some point in the future.
