Our monitoring team replaced their old servers with new servers last year and a new version. Unfortunately the servers aren't powerful enough to crunch through more than a few thousand alarms before taking a dump so they only save alarms for 48 hours. This makes it impossible for us to do any trending and management of alarms, especially since the monitoring software isn't capable of generating a report of just what it is monitoring.

On my own, I added a central email account to our group email account. Our group email receives the alarms from monitoring of course. This puts every alarm into a central mailbox. I started this in 2009 so I have about 350,000 alarms in various mailboxes (I roll them once a year).

Yesterday I parsed out relevant information from each email and imported all 350,000 alarms into my inventory database which associated the alarms with servers and gives me a long term view at the environment. I've set up an automated process that now parses each email and imports it into the database so we have accurate information and have our alarms for long term trending. I also whipped up a couple of scripts to provide the view into the alarms.

Currently you can only select a date range but today I'll be adding bits to display alarms on the individual server detail page and adding a search feature so you can filter information even further. I also will create a report with the number alarms for each server by year, etc, more of a management view of the alarming than the trending stuff we sysadmins want to do.


Part two is after 7 years of working on my Inventory program including the recent upgrade to 3.0, and after the "official" inventory conversion team (importing from the "official" inventory tool, which only manages physical assets) has refused over and over to use information that's in my "unofficial" "unapproved" inventory too, one of the VPs has instructed the team that my tool is much more complete and is the "database of record" for inventory and that they will use my inventory data to provide all the details that the "official" inventory asset tracking database has.

So I'm writing scripts to extract data from my inventory tool in a format that can be used to import it into the new "Asset Tracking ITIL CMDB" system.

*wheee*

Cleaned my house in anticipation of the nerd infestation that will occur this weekend. Also finished setting up my class website for summer term. Finally, I let chili do its (not his) thing in the crockpot.

Yesterday I finished some modules on the course <-> standards correlation program I've been working on (I left the finance world and am now working in on-line education), pushed code to the test server, and never did get to Lowe's like I've been trying to do.

Today I'll be working in the office, primarily for the happy hour send off for a co-worker who's leaving to do near-full-time health care for her mother.

Rebooted three servers.

Mentored two team mates who aren't Solaris admins on bringing up a failed system (two drives failed).

Worked on our patching strategy, reviewing the $150,000 cost involved for getting set up.

Currently surfing the web during lunch :)

Watching The Eagles Farewell Tour I in Australia.

Hacking some code, making a few minor changes to keep lusers from being stupid ( :)  a Detail record has to have an associated Server record or it won't display in the group server listing but there's nothing that forces them to do so and no check to make sure so I'm updating the code so they get a popup warning message).

Updating the code to use a jQuery popup vs the javascript popup (alert or confirm box) which doesn't give me much in the way of control. Using the same jQuery code to create a popup form vs an on-page form which confuses the lusers. It's already working in one of the modules so I just need to recode the bits in the other places.

Garage weekend...

Worked on the York A/C compressor mounting. It'll be used not for A/C but for a standard air compressor. It is one type that has it's own lubricating crankcase so I don't have to hassle with lube oil in the airstream (add oil on the suction port of the compressor then remove it on the discharge port before being fed into a tire). It seems I need to remove the odd 1-V belt pulley from the compressor and find a dual pulley. So, for now, it's remove the york stuff and put it back to original (done). Tire fill should go from crazy long (Carl remembers sitting at the eastern portal of the Moffat train tunnel for 16 Minutes per tire for the small compressor to air them up) to 4 minutes per tire with a larger electric unit. The York should be in the 30 to 50 second range and permanently mounted [under the hood] and out of the way of passenger storage.

Reinstalled the radiator. The upper mounts were loose and I didn't wish the mounts to rub through the upper rad cap. Off to the rad shop a few days back. First time to Fort Collins Radiator. I did a quick search for rad shop reviews and chose the downtown location (I try to take my biz to a good quality shop who also is an independent and downtown - small, old shops keeping downtown alive). I walk in and the guy immediately gets a smile and says - early 90's jeep wrangler! He was perfectly correct! He said those were the good ones - before the company went plastic end caps that leaked under the abuse they get offroading. A good opening to the service I hoped to receive. I showed the issue and said give it a review, call if anything crops up. Couple days later it was done. Picked it up and he said he also fixed a small leak from the top (I never knew it had a leak - nice to have it fixed). I'd go back and refer them to others.

Changed the front differential fluid tonight. I had the differential lock replaced last spring and this was it's "500 mile" service. I don't think the front diff had more than 200 miles on it all season. It doesn't spin unless the jeep's in 4WD or the front wheel hubs are locked in - which is only on a trail.

Changed oil.

Replaced the valve cover gasket. It'll be nice to not have a seep of oil at the front of the motor.

Now for some turn signal & headlight switch replacement (which should be easy - but for tomorrow).

Perhaps Tuesday I'll hit some local trails

Any locals wish to join in? Don, Carl, Joe...  (Is Joe Bikerfish1000 here - doesn't look like it)

I went to the Pez Museum.  Yes, there is a museum dedicated to Pex candy.

In addition to Pez there are also some select other toys in the museum.  My favorite non-Pez display was for the banned toys.  Toys banned by the government.  Such as Lawn Darts.  The best banned toy was the Atomic Energy Lab.  When first sold, it included 4 jars containing radioactive samples.

Friday, I firmed up the schedule for the shoulder surgery. 6/22. I also went to work at the office, but then we closed up around 3pm, because Friday.

Saturday I spent the day with my daughter Sarah, took her to a movie, hung out at home a little bit, and dropped off Liz's dad's resume with my boss. Pretty mellow day all around.

Today I'm picking up a Savage 650 from an old high school friend to get it roadworthy for her. It's been sitting a few years and she's gonna toss a few bucks at me to get it back to running.

Clackers! I had some of those.

I invited them in, kinda like vampires. [emoji14]

Picked up a new grill. We got one of the little Weber Q series.

We've always gotten the cheap tin things from Charbroil and the like. We knew it would rust soon but never spent  the coin on something better.
