I think that he's using a version of KDE < 4.5
:-)

Wonderful!!!
Great work!!! :-) - Mar 07 2011
Ok about "logging feuture", "per server notifications" (the most important thing in my opinion!) and "plasmoid in the KDE bar".
Now I try to explain my problem about "endless ping". :-)
I would use your plasmoid not to see if a server is gone definitely down but if the network from my workstation to the monitored server go down also for less than a second... like when you use in a console the command "ping -i 0.1 IP_SERVER". Now I've understood how you use the ping command into the plasmoid and I think that what I would want to do is not possible.
I hope to see early a new version of your plasmoid! ;-)
Thanks again! :-) - Feb 11 2011
This plasmoid for me is very useful but I have some ideas for you to improve its usability. :-)

1) "Per server notifications": one of my biggest problems is that is not possible to execute a different shell script (or notification) for every monitored server (when it go up or down...).
Could you implement this feature?

2) "Logging feature": the workstation in my office (where I have installed this plasmoid) is up 24/7. When I go to my office in the morning I can see the plasmoid (and all the shields always green!) but I can't understand for instance if in the night one of the monitored server is gone down for some minutes and then up again. Could you add the possibility of log all the event (when and what a server is gone down and/or up) in a txt file or into the plasmoid with a text widget?

3) "Endless ping": now I can test if a server is up only every N seconds for M pings. What do you think to implement a test with an endless ping (with -i ping option variable)? In this case a server would be down when it doesn't respond at almost M consecutive pings and it would be up when respond at almost N consecutive pings.

4) "Plasmoid in the KDE bar": when there are a lot of servers is not possible to use this plasmoide in the
KDE bar but only on the desktop. If on my desktop I have open only a full screen window (and I've disabled the notification) I can't see if a server is gone down. I think that the better thing to do is to implement a small plasmoid with only a little shield. We could put it in the KDE bar and when we see a red shield we could click on it with the mouse to see the report of what appen or the status of all the servers or other info...

What do you think about my 4 ideas?
You could implement it?

Thanks for your cooperation! :-)
Bye bye...
