16 tdb 1.6 Most i-scream components are now functioning to initial
17 ajm 1.4 design parameters and data can now be passed through the
18 tdb 1.6 system and displayed successfully. Documentation is still
19     being generated, to allow for future development of the
20     i-scream project. Detailed information can usually be
21     found in the meeting minutes. Code is viewable via CVS
22     to UKC users only.

26 pjm2 1.8 The i-scream Distributed Central Monitoring System <a href="http://raptor.ukc.ac.uk/~pjm2/reports/browser.php">Reports</a>
27 pjm2 1.7 are now visible on the web. You may view all reports
28     available for each day, but please remember that this is
29     work in progress still, so the only data currently viewable
30     is our own data that has been harvested by our own testing.
32     <p align="justify">
33 pjm2 1.5 Our current host development allows us to pass machine statistics
34     to our distributed filter arrangement, which then processes the
35     data and stores it for later use. An example of such use is the
36     historical report generator which produces graphs of machine
37     usage over periods of time (viewable in a web browser). Realtime
38     clients are also currently being developed - one Java Swing GUI
39     version and also a command line version that can run in a terminal
40 tdb 1.6 window. Alerting mechanisms are being put in place to complete the
41     i-scream system.

45     Builds of the i-scream Distributed Central Monitoring System
46     are now available for <a href="/builds/">download</a> from this
47     website. These are still very much in development, are should
48     only be used by people who have been in communication with the
49     development team.

55     <p align="justify">
56 tdb 1.6 The project deadline is 4pm on 29 March. As such, we plan to
57     complete the coding process by (at the latest) the end of the
58     project week (26/2 - 2/3). This allows time for documentation
59     to be tidied up and completed, and printing of the project.

62     <p align="justify">
63     As can be seen in the "problem domain" document, the project
64     was aimed at the UKC Computer Science department, and as such
65     we believe a demonstration to the "customer" is important. We
66     plan to do this over the next two weeks, and the feedback given
67     will allow any "last minute" alterations to be completed.

71     <center><h3>Naming History</h3></center>
73     <p align="justify">
74     The name <b>i-scream</b> arose from a meeting whereupon one member
75     of our group randomly chose to draw an ice cream on the white board.
76     It later became apparent that we had no name for our project (other
77     than 'The Project'). It seemed only natural to name our project after
78     the ice cream that had been oh-so-randomly drawn on the white board.
79     Copyright issues immediately ruled out anything involving Mr Whippy,
80     so we had to settle for <b>i-scream</b>. And thus, we were left with a cunning
81     play on words - it still sounded like <i>ice cream</i>, yet also
82     served as a functional decription of our system - namely, one which
83     screams at somebody if something has gone wrong...
