Projects / SURVIVOR


SURVIVOR is yet another systems monitor. It consists of a POSIX-thread based scheduler written in C++ running arbitrary checks in a flexible, heterogeneous, bureaucratic, and convoluted environment. It maintains proper state, history, sanity, and attitude, and allows interaction via Web, command, and two-way messaging interfaces.
