Ruby monitoring websites, databases and more on windows


#1

Im happy now, hehe, the company im working only using .net technology
and i
convinced my boss to give me a small project to prove how can ruby could
help the company.

Now the project!

I need keep track of the status of the websites, webservices, servers,
databases, disk space and so on windows servers.

I really dont know nothing about ruby and windows, the last time i
tested the mri i didint liked, was very slow and not all things worked
fine, first question, what is the best ruby implementation to windows?
Jruby?

What is the best approach? Make a ruby daemon to keep track of
everything and than the website interact with the daemon or the website
directly ping the services i want know if is alive?

The project gonna be a web application, gonna use Ramaze or Sinatra,
probabily Ramaze.

Thanks everyone :wink:

Depending on what you have to monitor, you can probably use SNMP for
most of that. There is a Ruby library for that [1].
