For now, this is what I added to xymonclient.ps1
in the function XymonClientConfig($cfglines) [and have a corresponding
entry "netstat_listening" in clientconfig.cfg]
-or $l -match '^netstat_listening' `
and in the function XymonPorts
netstat -an | findstr LISTENING}
netstat -an }
WriteLog "XymonPorts finished."
Also, we recently had a CRAC unit go down in a remote location. On the
server team, we were able to see temperature warnings on the Linux boxes,
but Windows is silent on this. Any thoughts on how to monitor salient
temperatures in Windows? (CPU, mainboard, fans, etc?)
