Does anyone know of a way to tell the Calendar/task statistics
on Keriomailer server 6.2.2 to work out what kind or load or usage the server is getting ?
To determine if machine memory or HD has the power to perform or upgrade needed

I use The Dude (here, doens't cost a dime, excellent!) to probe machines/devices on my network using SNMP. This gives me very nice hour/day/week/year graphs on things such as cpu/memory/virtual memory/disk load as well as network throughput.

Example of a daily graph of my KMS server (also runs KWF):

(The 'high' (30%) CPU load block starting at 2 at night is the KMS backup running.)

Of course, you have to load the SNMP client (comes with Windows) on the machines you want to monitor.

Edit: damn, can't get the img-tag to work! :(

In the SNMP Agent service (on the wk3 server) you have to specify which computers may poll the SNMP data. By default no one can. Did you enable that?

Are the SNMP community strings matching (in the Dude and the SNMP Agent on the w2k3 server)?

You seem to be new at SNMP, so some small pointers:

Community strings are something like a password in SNMP-land. So use something other that the common 'public' (or make sure you limit the list of hosts that your SNMP Agents will send info to).

Oh yes, and never enable a read & write community string if you do not intend to use it. (For things like the Dude read-only is fine.)

That should get you safely started :)

Yes Thanks again.

I did that too as I am currently doing a web course and are using Oscommerce and Paypal for our project. So locking down services to reduce risk and ensured no default/guess or anonymous login are availavle and the use of SSL. Unfortunately we did not cover SNMP in any depth.

I have made it read only as I only want statistics and have put my IP and host name in at the moment and a customised community string.
