Hmmm... I hadn't seen that (else would have jumped at the idea), but at
one point I had dropped the tree under my own CVS server -- probably just
better to get Vikas' blessing and hit Sourceforge though, nowadays (not
like that hasn't already been said... HeHe)

Even though I don't really want to do this without Vikas' blessing, since it is under a GPL type license, we could spin off a project on source forge (Hey Vikas get involved here okay). This is one that I would like to be involved in too. I have some rather strong feelings about montioring software and SNIPS comes closes to meeting those in a freely available product.

Agreed - on all fronts.  I've always had "a thing" for monitoring (well,
considering my primary work is "tools development," go figure) and I'd
like to at least have Vikas' nod of approval.  NOCOL/SNIPS has indeed
been a relatively solid base for at least small to medium sized efforts.

Anyone else? I know Tuc's probably game... ;-)

(Now if we can just wake up Vikas... *grin*)

Even if someone creates a project on SourceForge, we still need a maintainer.
I am not sure that allowing anybody to checkin would decrease number of bugs.
But SourceForge has a bug tracker - we really need it for SNIPS.

my list of bugs:
- trapmon - broken, doesn't clear events, really hard to add MIBs, data file is incompatible.
- snmpmon-collector doesn't really works on new Linuxes/W2k
- hostmon/snmpmon empty Device [] issue
- hostmon/snmpmon trailing garbage in datafiles issue.

I'm in the middle of patching snmpmon-collector to work with current net-snmp and Linuxes/BigIP/W2K.
