  1. I've built a Monitoring DB for our company using the DataAPI and scheduled scripts. It pings just once a minute but that is fast enough for us and allows to also send CPU load, RAM usage and HD usage. And all of this quite efficiently. Still it does not allow remote control of the server since it is dependent on the Scripting engine but at least it is a two-way controlled setup (if the pings do not come in in time you get a message and if the monitoring server is not reachable you get a message). Ideally you'd use 2 Monitoring servers that control each other for additional safety. So far we are quite satisfied with the setup and it is much easier to keep the data produced small enough.
  2. tbh. this new behavior crashes my FM installation regularly. Whenever ScriptMaster shows some java Error dialogs there is a rising chance they disappear after half a second or so and cannot be brought to the foreground while blocking FileMaker without any timeout. So I have to force quit FM after at most 2 calls to the faulty script. Really freaks me out when trying to develop new function.
  3. Got a Notification for the first time. Seems somebody is listening and fixed it.
  4. Sounds good. When will the next version be ready? 🤩
  5. Sounds good to me. Will you also implement encryption of Passwords or will you solely rely on SSL? (I ask this because wee won't have SSL on every server)
  6. I now realised it was the bingo that kept filing up my server... Why on earth does MySQL need 60 GB of binary log for 500 MB of data?
  7. Thanks a lot, I'm not a SQL Server poweruser so that event scripting will come in handy. So the best course of action would probably be a (SQLServer? Deamon?) script that monitors the table, logs excessive CPU usage and then deletes the records no longer needed?
  8. Tried doing it with a FileMaker Script but that get slow really fast. Problem seems to be the Process Logs. As I understand you use them to monitor the running of the FM services. But they generate about 300-500 Log entries a second with only 5 monitored servers. And deleting them from within filemaker is really slow. Truncating or deleting them from SQL is way faster. I think the deamon should only maintain 1 set of process info (the current one). Everything else is just too confusing and there is no way one can make use of the amount of data right now. Attached, user pass both admin. Find Script searching for CURL in Script Workspace. Also did a few adaptions regarding notification frequency. And regarding this probably a threshold for notification would be nice to avoid false positives. Sometimes the WB reports a server problem and the next minute it's gone. So a configurable threshold would be nice (e.g. if we set it two double the time of the frequency of the server side script it would avoid false positives - with the caveat of notifying a tad delayed) It would also be nice if you could enter more than 1 Prowl account for a server and if those accounts (api Keys) could be on a server basis. Additionally I'd love to have a HDD monitoring as well. To see if the HDD fills up and in the event be able to take action before everything crashes. RAM as well probably. You told us in Berlin but I forgot - what is the reason the deamon does not work with FM11? I also have problems with a FM14 Host of mine, 15+ is working fine. Thanks for all this fantastic work btw!! FMSwhistleBlower.fmp12
  9. Wishlist: Autodeletion of SQL entries (my server filled up in 3 Weeks - using over 60 GB) Encryption of username/pwd on SQL Server (already discussed at DotFMP) Configuration of services (which service is being monitored per server - we have lots of servers were we deliberately switch off WebDirect) Ability to use CURL (included on mac, free for windows) for ping monitoring (very rough and not completely testet/functional demo can be provided) Prowl Notification time threshold (only send notification after X seconds of downtime - there are false positives now) 1 Notification per X minutes - if Server crashes only send 1 Notification every X minutes Thanks Tobias
