    Hello-

    I ran across your site looking around for linux admin stuff. I just wrote a new tool that I want to release under a GPL license. However, I would like to know that someone in the world besides me finds it useful before I bother.

    I’m looking for anyone interested in beta testing it.

    On one hand I consider this a server monitoring tool, but really it’s a very generic and automated diff tool.

    Basically, what it does is run a program (or programs) you specify and capture the ouput. It remembers the first time you run it as a baseline and subsequently, compares the current output to the baseline. If there’s a change it outputs a readable diff.

    It’s more advanced than this, but simply this is what it does.

    So, for instance, you can watch a server remotely using “nmap someserver.com | grep open”. If the open ports ever change, you’ll get notified… assuming you run it from crontab.

    If you have any interest in beta testing this, please let me know.

    Brad,

    I’d be glad in beta testing and waiting to have a look at earliest.
