Easyrider LAN Pro has put up a monitoring information forum at

We're particularly interested in visitors and contributors who have
opinions/experience regarding computer infrastructure monitoring.
There doesn't seem to be anything in Usenet devoted to this topic so
we figured we'd just create our own.

We'd like to hear how Admins are currently monitoring their gear and
what tools and services they like (or don't like).

We will also accept postings from monitoring software vendors so long
as they don't become spam.

All are welcome.  Thanks in advance for your participation.

1. ISO UNIX Bulletin Board Application Does anyone know of any UNIX bulletin board(group thinking)

type software?  My group would like to be able to use our local network to
brainstorm and discuss various issues, much the way standard news works.  In
addition, we would like to be able to limit access to either the whole system,
or optimally to individual discussions.  It would be nice to be able to choose
from a list of topics, read the existing discussion archives, then post your
own 2 cents.  This functionality is common to PC/MAC bulletin boards, but
I can't remember seeing a UNIX implementation.

        I have been told that I could run a local version of NNTP and have
everyone point their news readers to it.  I am not sure how to limit access
if we do this, and it seems awkward to have to repoint your news reader.  We
may windo up doing this, but there HAS to be a better way.
