17 pjm2 1.14 All i-scream components now function to initial
18 pjm2 1.12 design parameters and our system is regarded to be complete.
19 pjm2 1.14 <b><a href="worddocs/">Documentation</a></b> is available to assist third party programmers
20 pjm2 1.12 in producing Hosts for use with the i-scream server.
21     Our progress during the project can be found in the meeting minutes.
22 pjm2 1.14 Code is viewable via <a href="http://raptor.ukc.ac.uk/~tdb1/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi">CVS</a> to local users users only.

27 pjm2 1.10 The i-scream Distributed Central Monitoring System <a href="http://raptor.ukc.ac.uk/~pjm2/reports">Reports</a>
28 pjm2 1.14 are now visible on the web. If you are <b>not</b> a local user, then you may
29     view some of the output in the <b><a href="screenshots/">screenshots</a></b> section.
30     You may view the latest information about each machine, historical 24-hour
31     reports and alerts for each machine. Our own i-scream server is running constantly,
32     along with several hosts to enable plenty of data harvesting. If you would
33     like your i-scream web reports to be linked from this site, then please email us
34     at <a href="mailto:dev@i-scream.org.uk">dev@i-scream.org.uk</a>

39 pjm2 1.5 Our current host development allows us to pass machine statistics
40     to our distributed filter arrangement, which then processes the
41     data and stores it for later use. An example of such use is the
42     historical report generator which produces graphs of machine
43 pjm2 1.12 usage over periods of time. A real-time
44     client is also available (Conient) and alert information can be
45     displayed to the public via dynamic web pages.

50 pjm2 1.14 The latest builds of the i-scream Distributed Central Monitoring System
51     are now available for <b><a href="/downloads/">download</a></b> from this

53     would be extremely grateful to receive feedback from anybody who has
54     any comments about the system. You may email the development team
55     at <a href="mailto:dev@i-scream.org.uk">dev@i-scream.org.uk</a>

63 pjm2 1.14 The i-scream Distributed Central Monitoring System started off as
64     a final year project for a group of <a href="http://www.cs.ukc.ac.uk">Computer Science</a> students at
65     the <a href="http://www.ukc.ac.uk">University of Kent at Canterbury</a>, UK.
66     The project deadline was 4pm on 29th March 2001. Most of the group
67 pjm2 1.12 met very early that morning to compile the project into five
68 pjm2 1.14 lever arch folders. The project, consisting of source code, user,
69 pjm2 1.12 maintenance and other documents, was handed in at 3pm. The CVS
70     repository was tagged to signify the project's completion, however,
71 pjm2 1.16 the project is still being developed by the <a href="acknowledgements.shtml">core development team</a>
72 pjm2 1.14 as we have found the system to be very useful in practice. We would
73     love to hear of ideas for extra features that we may include in the
74     next builds.

79 pjm2 1.14 As can be seen in our &quot;<a href="worddocs/">problem domain</a>&quot; document, the project
80 tdb 1.6 was aimed at the UKC Computer Science department, and as such
81 pjm2 1.14 we believed that a demonstration to the &quotcustomer&quot was important. The
82 pjm2 1.12 feedback from our demonstation was more positive than we had
83 pjm2 1.14 anticipated. We believe that the system may now be of great
84 pjm2 1.12 interest to anybody who wishes to monitor a number of machines
85     on their network using a central configuration.

93 pjm2 1.14 The name <i>i-scream</i> arose from a meeting whereupon one member
94     of the <a href="acknowledgements.shtml">development team</a> felt a strange urge to draw an ice cream on the discussion board.
95 tdb 1.1 It later became apparent that we had no name for our project (other
96     than 'The Project'). It seemed only natural to name our project after
97     the ice cream that had been oh-so-randomly drawn on the white board.
98     Copyright issues immediately ruled out anything involving Mr Whippy,
99 pjm2 1.14 so we had to settle for <i>i-scream</i>. And thus, we were left with a cunning
100 tdb 1.1 play on words - it still sounded like <i>ice cream</i>, yet also
101     served as a functional decription of our system - namely, one which
102     screams at somebody if something has gone wrong...
