15 <p align="justify">
16 Most i-scream components are now functioning to initial
17 design parameters and data can now be passed through the
18 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.
23 </p>
25 <p align="justify">
26 The i-scream Distributed Central Monitoring System <a href="http://raptor.ukc.ac.uk/~pjm2/reports">Reports</a>
27 are now visible on the web. You may view the latest information
28 about each machine, historical 24-hour reports and alerts for
29 each machine. Please remember that this is work in progress
30 still, so the only data currently viewable is our own data that
31 has been harvested by our own testing. Also note that historical
32 reports are only available for periods during which our server
33 was running.
34 </p>
36 <p align="justify">
37 Our current host development allows us to pass machine statistics
38 to our distributed filter arrangement, which then processes the
39 data and stores it for later use. An example of such use is the
40 historical report generator which produces graphs of machine
41 usage over periods of time (viewable in a web browser). Realtime
42 clients are also currently being developed - one Java Swing GUI
43 version and also a command line version that can run in a terminal
44 window. Alerting mechanisms are being put in place to complete the
45 i-scream system.

48 <p align="justify">
49 Builds of the i-scream Distributed Central Monitoring System
50 are now available for <a href="/builds/">download</a> from this
51 website. These are still very much in development and should
52 only be used by people who have been in communication with the
53 development team.

57 <center><h3>Project Completion</h3></center>
59 <p align="justify">
60 The project deadline is 4pm on 29 March. As such, we plan to
61 complete the coding process by (at the latest) the end of the
62 project week (26/2 - 2/3). This allows time for documentation
63 to be tidied up and completed, and printing of the project.
64 </p>
66 <p align="justify">
67 As can be seen in the "problem domain" document, the project
68 was aimed at the UKC Computer Science department, and as such
69 we believe a demonstration to the "customer" is important. We
70 plan to do this over the next two weeks, and the feedback given
71 will allow any "last minute" alterations to be completed.
72 </p>

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