I actually (mostly) stopped being on L1T at work, other then lunchbreak. Forums have a tendency to kill my productivity over time. In the past, it got so bad, i’d spend half my day on random forums.
This week i significantly cut down on that time, though, it’s tougher with L1T as i’m also getting work related stuff here.
With the added time, i started to program a proper Nagios Check for all the Sophos UTM Firewalls we have deployed at customers. Those where reporting over passive SNMP Traps until now, when proved to be not ideal for reliability.
Started with Rust and threw the towel. I’m now doing it in python, which is much more productive for me. Got proper Argument handling in place, CPU Load 1/5/15, Ram Checks in % and Byte, and Dynamic Uplink Monitoring for specified Interfaces with expected states.
A shtload of “if” statements, but it’s working. Some points are still on the todo list for this plugin, but it’s deployed for the first 2 test systems and can be extended/updated in place.
Plus i finally set up SSH in VS Code. I can now live edit code on most Linux Server i manager in Code, without having to rely on Terminals and stuff. Makes Coding much more convenient and less “scp” heavy"
