17 tdb 1.27 The "project" stage of i-scream has finished, leaving the
18     system in a completed state. Since then the goals have
19     changed from completing a project to producing a useful
20     and functional product.
21     <b><a href="documentation/">Documentation</a></b> is
22     available for people wanting to try out the i-scream
23     system, and our code is availabel via <a href="cvs.shtml">CVS</a>.
24 pjm2 1.12 Our progress during the project can be found in the meeting minutes.
25 tdb 1.27 Work is still continuing to adapt and improve the i-scream central
26     monitoring system as a product for use in networked environments.

31 pjm2 1.21 The i-scream Distributed Central Monitoring System Reports
32 tdb 1.27 are no longer visible on the web. You may view some of the
33     output in the <b><a href="screenshots/">screen shots</a></b>
34     section or you can sample some static example content on the
35     <a href="reports/"><b>Reports Demo</b></a> pages.
36     You may view the latest information about each machine,
37     historical 24-hour reports and alerts for each machine. If
38     you would like your i-scream web reports to be linked from this
39     site, then please email us at

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

56 tdb 1.27 Builds of the i-scream Distributed Central Monitoring System
57 pjm2 1.14 are now available for <b><a href="/downloads/">download</a></b> from this
58     website. To assist in our addition of features to the system, we
59     would be extremely grateful to receive feedback from anybody who has
60     any comments about the system. You may email the development team
61     at <a href="mailto:dev@i-scream.org.uk">dev@i-scream.org.uk</a>

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

85 tdb 1.18 As can be seen in our &quot;<a href="/probdomain.shtml">problem domain</a>&quot; document, the project
86 tdb 1.6 was aimed at the UKC Computer Science department, and as such
87 pjm2 1.22 we believed that a demonstration to the &quot;customer&quot; was important. The
88 pjm2 1.12 feedback from our demonstation was more positive than we had
89 tdb 1.27 anticipated. We believe that the system may now be of interest
90     to anybody who wishes to monitor a number of machines on their
91     network using a central configuration. The i-scream central
92     monitoring system is now being used by the UKC Computer Science
93     department, and their feedback is being used to further improve
94     the product.

102 pjm2 1.14 The name <i>i-scream</i> arose from a meeting whereupon one member
103     of the <a href="acknowledgements.shtml">development team</a> felt a strange urge to draw an ice cream on the discussion board.
104 tdb 1.1 It later became apparent that we had no name for our project (other
105     than 'The Project'). It seemed only natural to name our project after
106     the ice cream that had been oh-so-randomly drawn on the white board.
107     Copyright issues immediately ruled out anything involving Mr Whippy,
108 pjm2 1.14 so we had to settle for <i>i-scream</i>. And thus, we were left with a cunning
109 tdb 1.1 play on words - it still sounded like <i>ice cream</i>, yet also
110 tdb 1.26 served as a functional description of our system - namely, one which
111 tdb 1.1 screams at somebody if something has gone wrong...
