Laying down a challenge. I haven't (thus far) been able to find the exact object to do what I need. Simply I need a network tool that can ping / snmp (set threshold on a specific query to set status) and webscrape into a display I can then either project or place on a monitor a group of people can see.
Into more specifics, a large-ish network where there's some devices I can only ping (no snmp available) I just need red light green light for that. Other devices I can SNMP to so I want to be able to individually set thresholds for Green, yellow and red lights. Finally I have a couple of applications with a webserver front end that have a tick (image) if everything is fine and a cross (image) if something's up. I would like to be able to gather information elements from that web page and from the ping and SNMP and provide a big series of red/orange/green lights.
Maybe I'm asking for too much from one package but I assume other people are doing this as well. Anyone have any ideas? Am i going to have to combine several open source packages together to provide this? Ohh and I'm restricted to windows to do this. I _may_ be able to get a linux/unix monitor server if that's the only way but I'm trying to avoid managing 2 separate management boxes.
I have seen big brother but I have not seen a scrape module for it.
