    Hi.

    http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=15184

    That's the only thing about it I could find so don't think its a official feature.

    I'm guessing you would need a dude.exe for editing and dude,scr for the screensaver.

    Will be good if it works.

    Ive setup my first 2012 server today and virtual win8 machines to try out incase we are ever asked.

    As we are running out of space I wanted to use it with the dude but didn't want anyone else logging in and playing with my system so setting as a screensaver gets round this.

    I think this looks rather impressive lanstate_shot.png
    At the program does all that you was talking about: shows on the map and notyfies when hosts are down and many other options.

    We actually use ops manager, as it was mentioned and screenshotted earlier. To be honest, the live map for us turned out to be one of those things that sounds good but turns out to have little practical use.

    It might not be as sexy, but we have tended towards using a graph to represent service issue alerts on our live screen - this, for us, turned out to be far more informative - do you want a picture of an exchange server with a red cross next to it or do you need to know which exchange component has fallen over and why (e.g. see alerts for "information store dismounted" and "drive that contains the exchange DB logs is full").

    I setup The Dude last week in a VM and added all six of our sites along with a WAN Map using a snapshot from Google Maps as a background. The auto-discover seems a bit wonkey, but other than that it is pretty cool. I even setup email notification via our Exchange server.

    Looks like the screensaver thing doesn't work in server 2012. Could be a security option somewhere not allowing you to run it but havnt looked.

    Worked ok in win 7.

    Just adding in the eight server now.

    One really usefull this I like is the links that show data between our main deployment server and the other servers. They use dfsr so will be goof to show when the copying has finished.

    I'd suggest using Nagios. You can have a 2D map showing if you want, or a 3D one.

    Kinda pointless though IMO. The real power is the individual service tracking etc... So it emails you if something dies. Or if you have it up on a screen you can have the summary page up showing the state quickly.

    Or you could have one of these - Nabaztag hacks

    Still need to give nagios a go. Don't like it being on Linux though.

    It wastes a machine and screen somewhere. At least with the dude you can install it onto your workstation.

    Have noticed that when dfsr replicates from the main server account a 10mb connection, the main server kickss data out at 200 odd Mbps. The switches must do the flow control.

    Virtualise it. It doesn't need a screen at all, its web based, so you just access it on whatever machine you're using.

    The beauty of linux is its simplicity - everything is stored in text based config files, all the logs are in a standard location, the file system is structured in a sensible manner etc...

    Debugging something on Linux is a case of looking through the logs, and editing config files.

    Compared to Windows, where tracking down an issue can be circuitous and obscure, depending on what software, what version of the OS, sunspots, and what stage the moon is in...

    Setting up Nagios isn't difficult. I'd also recommend pairing it with Nagios NConf if you want a simple web based interface to configure it with.

    Yeah it has it's plus point. But I use the Thinking, could my nan do this.

    If not, its too hard and will never make it into homes. Try explaining the text conf files to her. If you ever follow a guide most of he time I find they never work as software has changed ornis no longer supported and there isn't a updates guide.

    Take Nagios. The latest guide on their site about he core goes back to Ubuntu 6.10 so I'm expecting this not to work.

    Different topic though. Windows vs Linux, have had a argument at work about this and Windows won hand down with me on its side.

    Will give it ago though
