Database Administration

I've been a Unix/Linux systems administrator for the last 7+ years and have always looked for extra projects to pick up at work. I'm now going independent to do what I enjoy. My favorite project has been my ongoing improvements to Quest Software's Big Brother monitoring tool. Year: 2002-2003 Time Spent: 3 months Technology: Big Brother, PostNuke, PHP, MySQL, gnuplot Description: Big Brother is a good inexpensive sytems monitoring tool. However, there were a number of features lacking. I created a suite of programs wrapped around Big Brother which provided: - Historical metrics stored in MySQL - Through the web graphing of metrics (PHP,gnuplot) - Tree based error view (PHP) - System downtime scheduling program (PHP,PostNuke) - System downtime reporting tool (PHP,PostNuke,MySQL) - System capacity reporting tool (PHP,PostNuke,Mysql) - SysInfo tool to record system information using a custom built templating system including reference fields to bind objects together
