Server/Network Monitoring

When it comes to monitoring servers, networks, workstations and other devices, there are a lot of options out there. In looking for something free and easy to use, I decided to just use NetXMS, it provides a client that you can install for extended functionality or you can just use SNMP.  In this case, I just needed to do some quick tracking of servers I was troubleshooting and I connected them machines I needed and setup a dashboard view.

I recommend giving it a spin, it's worth a look.

Point of Sale Project Discontinued

Due to lack of time and requirements of the project. I decided to not continue the Point of Sale project. I will have some other projects in the works, and hope to post more articles.


Building a better experience

Before the holidays started, I was provided the idea of creating a replacement Point of Sale platform for Education. Many school districts have shared with me their disappoint in their current platform in which they are paying for, with no sign of improvements coming down the road.  With that my current side project is developing a solution that can manage those payments from students and faculty.  The concept behind it is to make it simple and easy to use with the flexibility to adapt our applications their current POS integrates with. An example with the Library Management System with fines for books.

Currently I hope to provide an open demo for everyone by the beginning of May.  The holidays and consultancy projects have taken up most of my take as of late, but it's time to get back on track. Below you'll find some examples of the current development, all of it currently is very rough. The overall look and feel of the product will be driven by the users once I can provide a hands-on demo.
