Projects / autostatus


autostatus is yet another network monitoring program. It was designed to be easy to use and configure, fast and efficient. The 'fast' and 'efficient' part is handled by making autostatus aware of network hierarchies, and avoiding checking a host or service when another host/service/link upon which it is dependent is unavailable. It exploits maximum parallelism during its checking to speed up monitoring.

      Release Notes: A very beta patch to allow the webpage to display information gathered via SNMP from devices which respond as "up". (e.g. OS version, or printer status, etc.)

      •  27 Jul 1999 02:59

        Release Notes: Thresholds are now completely user-configurable. An external program may be spawned in response to a network change event. Several sections of code were rewritten for increased clarity, the makefile was improved, and the TODO list is now included in the distribution by default. The new interfaces are subject to potential change as they develop, but will remain in some form in the next full release.
