Here’s a little experiment.
I periodically log in to the server that runs this weblog to check the machine load, uptime and disk usage. It occurred to me that it might be nice to see this information in my news aggregator.
The result? The amazing RSS Uptime perl script.
I’ve cronned it up to run a few times during the day and subscribed to the feed.
Of course there are a zillion ways to monitor a machine, so this isn’t exactly a new idea. But perhaps the aggregator is a natural place for this kind of information. We’ll see. Try it out for yourself!
