_It's about "information" contra "data".re: #monitoring / #notification When I think of cloud monitoring (Stacky and Ganglia are what I've spidered in the past day.) it seems to me that there's an aspect of this task/chore/need that's very similar to something core to my project. 1 What I imagine is, given some sort of failure, that the system write to the log is not enough. That data and metrics present that data as information is likewise not enough. What would exhaust the need is some sort of alert or flare, a message of some sort. Notification. Whatever techniques are used for distributing those messages (What gets sent to whom, by what means and in what form?) … that's very, very close to the core of my work. So: I figure there might be something here that is mutually beneficial.But maybe I've misread the situation entirely!1) "my project" = GNodal; Protension; Exhibitum … a "discourse-based decision support system". When I imagined a system for propagating system outages I came up with the name "NoDuff", an infantry radio term/procedure word we used to signify "This is not a test"..NB: In EMail I can use superscript, as well as bold and italics. I can also create links. There's nothing good about the GUI Google has given us here. It's a test … to see how we feel about eating shit from a spoon.
