17 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 Our progress during the project can be found in the meeting minutes.
25 Work is still continuing to adapt and improve the i-scream central
26 monitoring system as a product for use in networked environments.

31 The i-scream Distributed Central Monitoring System Reports
32 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
40 <a href="mailto:dev@i-scream.org.uk">dev@i-scream.org.uk</a>

45 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 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 Builds of the i-scream Distributed Central Monitoring System
57 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 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 met very early that morning to compile the project into five
74 lever arch folders. The project, consisting of source code, user,
75 maintenance and other documents, was handed in at 3pm. The CVS
76 repository was tagged to signify the project's completion, however,
77 the project is still being developed by the <a href="acknowledgements.shtml">core development team</a>
78 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.

84 <a href="screenshots/"><img border="0" src="screenshots/thumbnail-ihost-main.gif" width="100" height="51" align="right"></a>
85 As can be seen in our &quot;<a href="/probdomain.shtml">problem domain</a>&quot; document, the project
86 was aimed at the UKC Computer Science department, and as such
87 we believed that a demonstration to the &quot;customer&quot; was important. The
88 feedback from our demonstation was more positive than we had
89 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 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 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 so we had to settle for <i>i-scream</i>. And thus, we were left with a cunning
109 play on words - it still sounded like <i>ice cream</i>, yet also
110 served as a functional description of our system - namely, one which
111 screams at somebody if something has gone wrong...
