Server/Systems monitoring with Jabber?
I was simply thinking of just how Jabber and also IM systems as a whole sell "visibility notification". I assumed it would certainly be a cool hack to have a server (or perhaps a specific application) browse through to a Jabber account.
This does a pair points.
- You have a hassle-free means to check your web servers in close to - live.
- It opens up the opportunity to instrumenting your server or application with educational commands that can be accessed via Jabber.
Has any person seen this applied?
