Hi Martin,

 

We us site24x7 http://www.site24x7.com/  to monitor our IT services availability  and used our in-house software development team to integrate the outputs with the University website and our alert log system. This information is presented on our web site at: http://www.ed.ac.uk/schools-departments/information-services/services/status-alerts - fairly simple presentation but hopefully effective

 

We’ve had this in place for at least a couple of years and it has proved to be a reliable and cost effective solution.

 

Happy to answer (or get answers to!) other specific questions off list.

 

Best wishes, Mark

A couple of schools (MIT and Cornell for example) have Service Status “dashboards” on their websites.  I’m looking for simple tools to use to do the same.  What are you using?  Does anyone have a recommendation?

 

Here is Cornel’s for an example:

Please consider the environment when considering printing emails.  I mean, I’m flattered that you would think this is worthy of printing and pasting into your scrap book.  But wait, you weren’t going to do that, were you?  You were going to print (probably single sided, multiple pages) this and make a note or two and then put it on your desk.  It would get lost with the other unnecessary printouts you’ve made and eventually it would be tossed in the trash when you clean up your office!  First of all – toss it in the recycle bin not the trash!  Better yet, don’t print it!  I appreciate the compliment, but nothing in this email is worth the paper or ink – really.  DON’T PRINT THIS!  Call me instead, and we can chat.  Thanks.

We monitor systems with Icinga and have programmed dashboards from the data.  My sys admins use the data for their own purposes and we are finishing a published dashboard that is business process-centric (not IT-centric) and agregates dependent systems into one item on the dashboard.
