Description

We have a great new program called HDA Status, provided by Jason R.!

rar file attached here for testing.

If you have a Windows box, unzip it and give it a go. It may or may not execute depending on what version of .NET runtime you have installed. I compiled it against 3.5. Let me know if it works or not and what you think. The next piece is to momitor the HDD SMART status and provide tems.

Please provide your feedback here in this tracker!

Latest build. Should be more robust and look nicer. Still only monitoring services. Will add code to monitor disk space, smart status etc...

#2 Updated by cpg about 9 years ago

  • File HDA_Status_v3.rar added

Fixed the bug where the app would just sleep after first entering the connection settings. Also fixed the bug for unknown services.

#5 Updated by smccloud about 9 years ago

Loaded v3 at work and I see the same screen cpg does. Not showing services is an minor annoyance at work (since they are all disabled) but a major problem at home.

HDA_Status requires SSH access to your HDA and needs the a login that has MySQL access, and can run commands like locate /var/run/<process>.pid and it should work. If you cannot SSH from your work location then HDA_Status is not going to work.

#7 Updated by jritchie about 9 years ago

  • File HDA_Status_v5.rar added
  • % Done changed from 50 to 80

Latest version now monitors disks for space, smart status, and temperature. Please test latest version and provide feedback.

  • File HDA_Status_v6.rar added

Version 5 was accidentally compiled against Itanium CPU.

#9 Updated by jritchie about 9 years ago

  • File HDA_Status_v7.rar added

Found that the progressbar that I added last minute caused a lot of issues. Who would have guessed. This version has the progressbar removed and a few more bugs found by Bigfoot65.

#10 Updated by jayrock about 9 years ago

Testing v7. The disk usage figures seem to be incorrect:

HDA Dashboard: 25%/22%/57% free
HDA Status: .... it was different (much lower) figures but I cannot check anymore cause the program crashed and can only be killed by Task-Manager. I can't say for sure but I suspect that this happened since I clicked "Monitor Disks" on the "Settings" tab and restarted the program.

#11 Updated by jritchie about 9 years ago

Fixed a few bugs, changed the disk panel to display space free instead of spaced used to better match what the HDA Dashboard displays. Added a speedup to the way we get the list of services to monitor. Have not seen any crashes on my systems but the issue is that everyones HDA may be set up slightly different than what the program expects which causes a crash. I may implement a debug logging function if needed to find out what type of string results are comming from the HDA that the program doesn't know how to deal with.
